Re: Raspberry Custom Encolsures

The Raspberry Pi is an amazing idea. even better that it being shipped as a pcb with rubber feet.( or at least I am on the understanding it is)
This gives the perfect opportunity to make your very own enclosure. I like the idea of encasing it in clothing. what about you?

Re: Duracell 5 Hour Portable USB Charger/Battery pack

With a bit of side ways thinking you could build your very own for about 5-6 pounds re-engineering poundland solar garden lights and a usb phone adapter. which I find far more fun that buy something off the peg.

Re: Power supply news!

I know it is abit late in the day for this but is it possible that the board could have headers (pined or unpined) for external regulated supplies without the wattage overhead.

Re: How would you use a Raspberry Pi device?

something that small and cheap I like the idea of soft electronics I think I would sow it inside some baggy jeans with a in arm mounted lcd and some sort of finger operated HID (human interface device). lots of leds have to be used on the gpio ports.

Re: Seriously? This "box" wont have a case to it?!?

For all my electrical projects I has to be poundland every time. I have that many Tupperware project-boxes it is getting mad and you can decorate them whatever way you like. excuse the pun but I think the raspberry pi board as a whole need alot of thinking outside the box.
