I wanted to find a way to mount a handful of raspberry pis to my desk area with easy access for experimentation. Ideally I’d be able to quickly swap SD cards while testing things out, and I want several raspberry pis so I could have some designated for experimentation or certain apps and still have another one for testing or demos on camera.
In this video I assemble the UCTronics Ultimate Raspberry Pi Rackmount. This 1u bracket holds four raspberry pi 4 boards, along with supplied PoE hats, HDMI relocation boards, power buttons and even an OLed status display!
