Make Your Own Raspberry Pi Case Competition #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

BitTech

Get creative and come up with a cool enclosure for your Pi, from bit-tech:

With Mod of the Year now over, we have a little something for you to beat those post eye-candy blues. Our first modding competition of the year revolves around the Raspberry Pi – if you don’t know what it is, take a look at our extensive review of it here.

Why Raspberry Pi? Well, we’re conscious of other competitions or fully-fledged case mods and scratchbuilds being pricy ways to mod; as the Raspberry Pi is so small and doesn’t require anything in the way of cooling, it’s the perfect subject for a budget modding competition that everyone can be involved in. For £10 (you can spend more if you wish) you’ll be able to pick up all the materials you need and if you’d prefer to work with your own example of this dinky motherboard, they can be had for less than £35.

We’re offering you the chance to win your very own Rasberry Pi Model B. All you have to do is build your own case for the Model B Rev 2. Of course, we’re not just talking about sticking it to a piece of acrylic or cardboard. We want the case to fully-enclose the motherboard and look funky, sleek, crazy or whatever you feel epitomizes the best case for a Raspberry Pi

The only stipulation is that it remains fairly small (see below for the maximum dimensions). This is to keep the cost of entering down – as the Raspberry Pi is so small, a sheet of acrylic or wood to make a case should cost less than £10 so everyone can have a go. Not interested in the Raspberry Pi? Why not join the competition anyway to stretch those modding fingers?
