this is my first post on the forums, and I wanted to share my case - pipod

Raspberry Pi inside old ipod case. Connections: Power, HDMI, LAN, 3.5mm stereo:

Top of the ipod. I flipped around the metal case so that the dock connector is now at the top of the ipod. With a fraction of a mm of filing and the sd card fits in to perfection next to the power lead:

sd card can be removed from the slot and power lead removed too:

So that is my case. Raspberry Pi all sealed up in side thanks to the glue now holding the ipod together. Unfortunately the ipod is a bit thinner than the pi, so the glue served to extend the gap between the top and the rear of the ipod. A bit messy, but I am happy with the homemade look of it :D

love the mod :) Man after my own heart, putting a pi into something like an Ipod

if you used viewtopic.php?f=32&t=9814, you could make your own mp3 player :) lol

Nice idea! I wanted to make mine pocket-sized, so I decided to replace the connectors instead.
It's good to see that other people share the same inspiration though :)
