Well, I am hoping to fit mine into an old Atari 2600 cartridge... I have seen several other people had the same idea.
I even designed a label for it. Whaddya think? I'm planning on printing a few of these up soon...
Loving the CX-2601 Combat cart design mate Have you made a top label too?
Thanks! Hey, look, it's only a year later that I post again...
I was up until super-early morning the day these originally went on sale, and was going to order one, but all the severs were crashing from the demand. Tried the next day, same deal.
Got frustrated and kinda forgot about the Pi for a while.
Well, I saw the sticker about a month ago (I made a bunch, including the top sticker) and ordered a raspi from Newark, and now finally have one.
Problem? The Pi is a bit too tall, and the SD card juts waaaay out of it.
So... I think I'll be designing a 3D-printed case in the near future. A buddy of mine has one, and I am learning SketchUp right now to design a taller Atari 2600 cartridge that will have mounting screw holes that match the Pi, and the cutouts around the cartridge will be made to look like Atari would have made them, if the connector holes were supposed to be there.
It'll take some doing, but I will eventually have my goal. I may even enlongate the cartridge juuuust a little, to better protect the SD card / help support it / still have it easy to remove.
Don't hold your breath.
BTW, if anyone else is interested in the labels I made (to fit an orig 2600 cart) I'll let the extras go pretty cheap - even better, if you can think of a cool little trade I might be interested in. I'd say PM me on here, but I don't know how soon I'll be back on here. Just shoot me an email to raspi@ (my username here) (.com) (Just wrote it that way so spambots don't acquire my email...)
