I have this lying around, so....

Thu Jul 05, 2012 11:04 pm

Just had my invitation from Farnell to order my Pi, so I have been thinking of things to make my case from...

So far, I haven't seen my idea on any site, so this might be a first.....

I've checked, and it looks like there is enough space in the base of the attached model to successfully house the Pi, as well as extending required ports (The base is removable anyways)

What do you guys think? Classy case, or epic fail????? I think it would look pretty awesome...

bonus points if you can light-guide the LEDs to his radio backpack.

I was intending to try LED modding around the glacier, and the guy himself...

I'll keep you posted

Well...

I have printed off the RPi 'pun net' so I have a good bead on where the Pi will fit in response to the void in the base of the model.

Was thinking of placing a few ultra-bright White LEDs I have, to give the glacier a glow, and I was toying with the idea of Electr-luminescant wire to wrap around the bungee cord on the figurine...

I so can't wait to get my Pi!!!!!!!!

And thanks to everyone for being so nice. I love a forum where people are constructive. Thank you.

Rob.
