The hinge has been made modular to allow it to be removed or put back as required, this leaves the Raspberry Pi and LCD display free to be used in other projects if required, and allows them to be reassembled back into this project at any time.
The hardware for the hinge is basic and requires only connectors, strip board, a piece of five core wire and a small hinge.
The wiring is direct from the connector on one side of the hinge to the matching connector on the opposite side of the hinge. The strip-board is used to anchor each connectors ground pin with plenty of solder, which gives the connectors a mechanical stability.
The connectors used on the LCD side are a female phono connector for composite video, a standard audio female 3.5mm stereo socket, a 2.5mm female power socket. The connectors on the Raspberry Pi side are a male phono plug for composite video, a standard audio male 3.5mm stereo plug, a 2.5mm male power plug.
