Case for Raspberry Pi

Postby Nuke » Mon Feb 27, 2012 11:48 pm

LXF 156 makes heavy weather of finding a case for the Raspberry Pi : folding out of projector transparency, Lego blocks .... I don't think I would want those as a permanent fixture in the living room :roll:

Building electronics is a hobby of mine. I have made some cases myself from sheet steel when I was fussy about the size, but the simplest way is to buy a ready made box from somewhere like Maplin. Last time I looked they had quite a wide selection that would make the job look professional.

Something like this would be fine.
The sig between the asterisks is so cool that only REALLY COOL people can even see it!

It so ugly! Lego ftw!

Or open up the back of a monitor and stick it inside, gaining power from the monitor and hdmi hard wired in. Now that would be cool and perfect for what I want to do with one :D
For certain you have to be lost to find the places that can't be found. Elseways, everyone would know where it was
