The lapdock is a screen, keyboard, battery pack, USB hub in one nice ultraportable laptop case. Specifically it has USB out for its hub, the keyboard and trackpad are on the hub. The screen is a HDMI display.
Well guess what, the Pi has HDMI out, and USB plugs. All you need are the correct connectors.
The Lapdock has male micro usb and HDMI plugs where the cellphone would dock in. I picked up a 12″ micro HDMI extension cable (male-female) and 12″ micro USB extender. I also picked up a microHDMI female to HDMI male adapter, and the same thing in a USB adapter.
- USB 2.0 type A male to Micro USB B type 5pin female Connector Adapter convertor,
- HDMI Male to Female Micro HDMI socket adapter convertor,
- 50cm Micro USB 2.0 type 5Pin Male to micro USB Female tablet extension cable,
- HDMI 1.4 D type Micro HDMI Male to Micro HDMI Female M/F Extension Cable 30cm
The Raspberry Pi has a micro USB power plug…but the latest version can take USB power through the normal USB ports also…and this allows the Pi access to the Lapdock hub/keyboard.
