Raspberry Pi in an N64 Case, from MAKE:

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.

  1. Are there some vents for heat? I faced an issue for a tight enclosure with pi running 24×7; the sd card plastic got degraded and became brittle and slowly turned unusable.
