Raspberry Pi, Arduino & RGB LEDs – all in one Portal-themed LEGO case @Raspberry_Pi #PiDay #RaspberryPi
Great build from Instagram user endorobotics featured on htxt.africa.
Using physical bricks and not any of those LEGO CAD programmes, the enclosure came together over the course of only two days. It was the home for a Raspberry Pi 3 and it featured some printed Aperture Science decorations.
As you can see some discoloration of the white LEGO bricks meant that the colour wasn’t uniform, so if you intended to make your own try to get bricks from the same moulding run.
Alternatively, there’s many methods out there to restore white bricks which usually become discoloured with age and sunlight damage.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
