I remember when the package from Farnell Element 14 came. My hands were trembling as I opened it... my pulse quickened. 

Could it be? YES!

It's amazing how far we've traveled in the world of technology. The SD card I bought for my RasPi, 4 GB, is twenty times larger than my first hard drive... and it only cost a few dollars.

And... it's a little big for my taste.

So - I've created an adapter I'd like to share with all the other Pi lovers out there.

It sits flush with the edge of the Pi.

At the cost of a little height above the SD slot.

Trim a little off your slice.

The adapter is pretty small as you can see - microSD FTW!

What's next?

I have production-ready versions of the adapter in hand... and I'm ready to press the 'go' button. This is essentially a group order - join in if you like!

DETAILS:

 * PCBs will be produced / assembled in the USA

 * Gold ENIG contacts

 * Green soldermask with white silkscreen ( lettering )

 * push in / out microSD connector
