Steampunk-inspired Raspberry Pi enclosure | HackSpace magazine #20
Who doesn’t like a good-looking case for their Raspberry Pi?
We’ve seen many homemade cases over the years, from 3D-printed enclosures to LEGO, Altoid tins and gravity-defying Zelda-themed wonderments. We love them all as much as we love own — our own case being this one if you fancy one — and always look forward to seeing more.
Cue this rather fancy steampunk-inspired enclosure made by Erich Styger, as featured in the latest issue of HackSpace magazine.
The magazine states:
This steampunk enclosure for the Raspberry Pi by Erich Styger was laser-cut out of 4 mm birch plywood, and stained to make it look a bit more 1890s. It’s built to fit a Raspberry Pi with an NXP tinyK22 board and a battery backup, and there are ports artfully crafted into it so that the system is fully functional even when the box is closed.
Those gears aren’t just for show: turn the central wheel on the front of the box to open the enclosure and get access to the electronics inside.

But i like the Mac Pro case clone more:
Not a fan of steampunk but I can really appreciate the thought and effort that went into this. Well done!
