Raspberry Pi Business Card Box
After months of waiting, my Raspberry Pi finally arrived on Friday. Somehow I resisted the temptation to dash straight home and start playing with it, and went along to my daughter’s summer concert at school. This one has been earmarked to replace our decrepit Kiss Dp-600 streaming media player – more on that later. First though it needed a box. Since the form factor is the size of a credit card, and credit cards are the same size as business cards, I reckoned one of the plastic boxes that business cards come with might work. It does:
I could have done a better job with the RCA hole – it’s a bit too high. Hopefully somebody will come up with a nice paper template to do this properly (and I expect a laser cutter could do a much better job than me with a steak knife and a tapered reamer).
I’ve not done anything with the box lid yet, but it’s probably a good idea to keep dust out. I’m guessing that at a max power draw of 3.5W that heat dissipation shouldn’t be too much of a worry.
 My order number was 2864, so it looks like I just missed the earlier first batch of 2000. If there’s a next time I need to remember to fill out the interest form first before tweeting about it :(
