Guys at Pi Supply released a very useful raspberry shield, to allow the POE supply to the beloved mini-pc.

The backing campaign already gathered 2x the request, and 19 days are still running before it’s over, so hurry up if you are interested!

The details:

You can now power your Raspberry Pi and provide an Ethernet connection in any location with just a single cable. Perfect for removing the clutter of wires and for reliable use in remote locations.

Pi PoE is completely plug and play – there is no software required in order for Pi PoE to provide power and Ethernet directly to your Raspberry Pi and it will work straight out of the box.
