The humidor in the background or the power supply as a case? Personally would go for the humidor. Unlike the prior humidor projects, needs to be working humidor and a working computer!

I would have hoped for the Pi not to share Orac's characteristics :D

I'm considering implementing one into a PS2 case (slim or fat as I have both).

This looks familiar,but I can't place it.

This may seem a little corny but with all the people wanting to make or have made cases, why dont we focus on a unified design.



You can probably guess what I have just watched.

I was thinking of making a mini netbook as a case for the raspberry pi. I am thinkig of modding this
http://www.amazon.com/VisionTe.....38;sr=1-14 as the keyboard and have some sort of game pad buttons connected to the keyboard. I can't figure out what kind of monitor I should include, gut out an old dvd player, gut out the screen from those early notebooks with really small screens, or get a smart phone and somehow get it to work as a screen. Also does anyone know how to make custom psp-style thumbsticks for mice?

Is that a Sinclair QL?

Its keys don't look right (too raised and red keys!) so I'm guessing its a add-on keyboard for the QL.

Now this gives me an idea to dig out my old Speccy add-on keyboards :)

Its a Schön Keyboard - a replacement for the original - I think it was the only one that actually fitted the machine directly - other replacements left the original keyboard in place. Never seen one of these in the flesh but remember something in a magazine about them damaging the keyboard interface of the QL Ekkkk!

Would be nice to put the Raspi in the gutted microdrives - I'm wondering if the board would fit in a standalone microdrive that was sold for the Spectrum.

Another project I'm planning is to fit a Rapsi in an Apple II 3.5" Ext Floppy - coz I just love the look of it

I tried designing a case for it :P


I'm gonna try building my own case when I get it. That design will probably be hard to make so I won't try it, just an idea I got. I know the fan isn't needed.

If the final board turns out to be actually credit card size (~85x53mm) then I'm going for 2 tesco loyalty cards with standoffs as a case.

It shall be called the Tesco Value case of course...

Yes it is, I didn't have a photo to hand but it something I am definitely looking towards doing.

The boot up sequence should eventually look something like this.

What about those portable DVD players? No keyboard on it so you would have to either use a screen-keyboard or plug one in.



Shouldn't be too difficult to use the screen.

You could even break out some of the HW connectors to the plug! Not sure exactly how tha would be an advantage, but it would be cool :)

I really like the term 'Rapsi', better than how 'Raspi' sounds

I think the Pi should come in a cardboard box just big enough to hold the board, with lines printed on the outside. You should be able to open it up, remove the board, cut on the dotted lines with an X-acto knife, and then put the board back in, for a cheap basic case. Anything beyond the shipping box is gravy :-)

Plan B: posting a PDF of a fold-here origami case.


Great idea, just like Asus did?

"raspi" means "miser" in southern French slang, so it's kind of fitting ^^

Love wasd's case by the way. The holes and fan are superfluous though.

Actually, I have a few broken portable dvd players, and it's actually very easy to reuse the screen. As long as you don't mind hooking it up via composite video.

I'm thinking of getting a macbook unibody and putting the Pi into that. I've already found http://bounav.free.fr/wp/?p=176 and I was thinking that I could buy one of those lvds lcd controller boards that has composite video output.

I do like the stylized R with the pie-wedge segment.

It has my vote for a company logo. Simple, yet has flair. Readable in what ever size. Works in color or B&W. To bad I'm not a judge.
