Possibly the worlds smallest Pi based gaming device!

So you have a tiny Pi based project, but you cant go taking it out and about while it is naked! that would just be wrong!! So I thought I would knock up a bit of a case for it. But we dont want to go making some massive box that will remove all the skinny goodness, we want to keep the casing as minimal as the rest of the project...

So I signed up to OnShape and got designing.....

and the result was thus

Looks pretty good!! even if I do say so myself!!

The design is not perfect though :( i had designed the back piece with little pegs, which i thought would push through the holes in the pi and pcb, locking it all together.

Apparently these are too difficult to print, and the sizing comes out way too big anyhoo, so there is nothing but an elastic band holding it all together at the moment. I will rethink the mounting, maybe some screws or something so it is nice and solid.

To be continued.............
