Since the day I heard about the Raspberry Pi, I’ve wanted to build my own case for it. It’s such a small and hackable device that I think it just begs you to build it a case. Plus it’s just cool to build your own case.
What is a Raspberry Pi?
This was a question I had to ask a friend of mine after I ordered on, without even knowing what it was. In simple terms it’s a computer a tiny computer, about the size of a pack of cards. The Raspberry Pi contains everything that a normal computer contains; it has a CPU, GPU, RAM and HDMI out. It has USB ports to plug a keyboard and mouse into. It has an HDMI port for display, even a RCA video out if you do not have a monitor capable of HDMI input. Sound comes courtesy of either a 3.5mm jack or sound over HDMI.
I’ve taken some high resolution photos of my Raspberry Pi. I love the rawness of it. Go forth and stare at the photos, you know you want to.
So I finally took delivery of my Raspberry Pi about 3 weeks ago. But have just been too busy to post about all the amazing stuff I’ve been doing with it. More posts on that too, coming soon.
Go on over to their website if you have no idea what I’m talking about. It’s really awesome.
Also here is another picture once I took it out the box.
I’ll be posting a whole bunch of pictures and a few How-To guides from a complete noob to Linux perspective. Which is exactly what I was. Until I got the Raspberry Pi that is.
