Project PI part #2 Choosing the case.


This is part #2 of my new Raspberry PI 2 Build.
 
I wanted to choose a case for my new Raspberry PI 2 but wanted something different rather than just a standard shop bought PI case...although...thats perfectly ok too! There are so many gorgeous cases out there but they can be a bit plain and I wanted something more unique after-all it is Gadget Girl.

My other half has a wonderful collection of Sinclair micro computers a gorgeous museum to how computing all began....yes we can remember these and its so nice to see a full collection and growth of the computer industry.


Here is the wall of just some of his computers; so its now seeing if there are any spares he wont mind me cutting up...destroying...er...I mean gently modding!
It would be fantastic to combine both modern and vintage technology!

Although I don't think he'd let me sacrifice his ZX80 as his owned it for 35 years it would be the end of Gadget Girl....steps slowly away from the ZX80... ;-)
As its Valentines Day I need some serious grovelling so off to bake him an Apple Pie; a pie for a PI.


He also has this gorgeous mini ZX Spectrum phone case; wouldn't this be the most perfect PI size case for it...ok...I know...apart from all the static and fabric fibers so no, I cant use this unless I put it into a small plastic PI case first; but this would be just tooooo simple.
