A few holes cut into the sides of a case from a pack of playing cards from the 99p shop and viola a RPi case!

Total cost: er, 99p :-)

Quality I might have to get one of these atleast as temporary protection from my pesky kids lol

Out of interest, you have in the picture the same keyboard as me, but if yours bluetooth or rf? Mine is bluetooth and I can't get it to pair :(

I have the same keyboard/trackpad, and just remembered I have the same set of cards...well the cards are now in the bin and the Rpi is in the case. Great idea. Thanks :D

Brilliant idea.
Hopefully i should be receiving a pi tomorrow (sent to me by a kind friend who had a spare :D as awaiting the RS code to order), and will have to make sure to pop by the 99p store and see if i can find one of those cases ;).

On a side note, i had also considered a keyboard like that, really silly question, but i assume that the track pad acts as mouse without too many issues?? Also where did you get it from?? As the one i had looked into procuring was from china.

ReadiesCards and mikebiggs, you both say you have this keyboard. Looks great - can you tell me the make/model?

Thanks

I have it too lol, and it works great. I bought it for $60 two years ago and thought it was worth it, now its even cheaper.

I got a pack of the cards yesterday, but dont you find that there is an indent in the roof of the box which presses down on the top of the USB connectors?
