Raspberry PI in a Lego/Megablocks Porsche

I’ve not really had a chance for doing any modding for some years, but I couldn’t resist the urge to pick up a raspberry PI a while back.  My intention to was have a play and try to make a nice case.  What I did in the end is use a Megablocks Porsche as a basis for the case.  I had to do a bit of tweaking and drilling to get the cable routing, but it was very quick in the end.

The process was quite simple, strip out all the extra bricks and create some kind of mounting for the board.

Cable routing was a pain, but I just managed to squeeze it into place.  I plan to run it headless, but if I need to connect anything up I just open the doors.

The Raspberry Pi is an awesome bit of kit.  I added a wireless card and some nice blue heatsinks.

You can see how I mounted the board.  I used some plastic standoffs glued into 2×1 lego tiles with a central hole.  Works perfectly and allows the board to be removed in seconds.

The Porsche was on offer at only £9.99 so was a bit of a steal.  You can see it here on their website:  Megablocks Porsche
