Creating a Protective Case for Your Raspberry Pi

You can buy a case for your Raspberry Pi (see Chapter 1), but many people prefer to make their own cases, which is consistent with the do-it-yourself ethos of the Pi. You can download a paper template if you want to make a paper or cardboard case, called the Punnet (see www.raspberrypi.org/archives/1310 ). Print, cut, fold, and decorate.

Sean made his first Pi case from Lego bricks, and he’s not alone in that. Biz, a twelve-year-old girl and robotics fan, designed a Lego case and published the instructions on the Raspberry Pi website (www.raspberrypi.org/archives/1354 ). If you’d like to copy her design (which includes a cute Raspberry logo on the lid, as you can see in Figure 3-7), you can buy a kit with all the Lego pieces you need and assembly instructions from The Daily Brick (www.thedailybrick.co.uk ).
