This is what a creative community does: Takes a great idea and builds on it…and what better way to extend the “please be creative with this thing” message that by encasing it in Lego bricks! The model shown here (including an amazing logo) is a case for a Raspberry Pi. The link below will take you to the Raspberry Pi website, where there are links to several other great projects from users.*
I have three boxes of Lego in the lab at school and I really hope to be able to put them to good use in the Maker course this coming Fall. This is certainly a project I will keep my eye on as we have plans to add at least one Pi to the mix!
* Raspberry Pis are not even available yet, so I guess these are “proto-users” for now.
