At the Raspberry Pi Meetup at MAKE, I found a lot of neat applications for the Raspberry Pi. There was an old time radio, media center, personal computer, and even a video game console. Raspberry Pis are neat because they have so many applications and are open to creative expansion by any user with an idea. For something with all of this functionality, I would expect it to be ridiculously overpriced, but I was happily surprised when I found out that they only cost $35. The problem with only spending $35 means no accessories are included; this is a bummer because a case is would be nice to protect it and keep dust out. After looking at a few cases people made, I came across an N64 game cartridge case. This one is simple to build, surprisingly durable, and just plain cool.
Here are the steps to build your own N64 Raspberry Pi case….
