Adapter for two SD cards

Mon Oct 15, 2012 9:15 am

Hi everybody,

lots of people, including me, are asking about dual-boot options for SD cards to allow two OS on Raspi.
But, what if we had an option to use an adapter for two SD cards, which will switch between them after each reboot. Something similar to SIM card adapters
Image.
Is there any clever electrical engineer, who could design something similar for us? :-)
I'm just a mechanical engineer. I have only ideas ;-)

Thanks

I can sell you something that allows you to use a second SD card at the same time, for only $35!

Actually scratch that, it won't work, the dual slot thingy is a MS Pro Duo device not SD-card.

something like this, and splicing in a second socket MIGHT work, but youd need to add a switch on at least the power line... Not impossible, but not easy either...

Potentially risky
