The standard setup for your first MAZI Zone

Figure 1: A typical shopping list for your first MAZI Zone

Raspberry Pi

Raspberry Pi cases

There are many options for Raspberry Pi cases. Be careful only not to buy a case only Raspberry Pi B if you have a Raspberry Pi 3.

MAZI has designed also a case that includes space for a specific USB battery.

MAZI 3D case for Raspberry Pi 3 and battery

You can 3D print this case by yourself! It is available in various 3D print formats.


The 7″ touchscreen monitor for Raspberry Pi:

Big advantage of this display is that it can be powered by the raspberry Pi. More detailed guidelines for mounting it are here:

microSD cards

It would be preferable to buy a class 10 card, or higher, for better experience with the MAZI toolkit.

Transcend: of 16GB or higher ***** of 16GB or higher

Kingston: of 16GB or higher

SanDisc: of 16GB or higher

***** Note 1: Currently the size of MAZI toolkit images is 8GB but in some cases it does not fit a 8GB microSD card, so it is advisable to get a card of 16GB or larger (especially if not one of the above). But if you have already 8GB cards you can use them.

***** Note 2: Micro SDcards are sensitive, and it is worth to buy a good one and take care while operating it (e.g., properly shutting down your MAZI Zone before unplugging the Raspberry Pi).
