Ashish Gulhati, who is according to Wikipedia "[...] one of India's first online activists and open source hackers", is currently holding a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter for a portable case for the Raspberry Pi Zero, called Noodle PI.

The project includes a high-resolution multi-touch screen, a battery, a power management system, and a camera inside the case. With 7 days still remaining for the end of the campaign, it has already reached CA$ 9,821 of its CA$ 1,024 goal. It's third stretch goal has been enabled, too: the production of the Noodle Key Micro dock, which allows to use a readily available backlit mini-keyboard with the device, making the device a fully fledged UMPC.

On a side note, mr. Gulhati still owns a Zaurus SL-C3100, which he claims to be the most usable among all the portable devices he has owned, although "[...] it was still too small and fiddly, and didn't have backlit keys or built-in WiFi or Bluetooth", hence the need for this project.
