Almost anything can be modeled in Lego elements. For static components like project enclosures, easily-reconfigurable Lego bricks can be a life-saver at the prototyping stage. In mild environments, they do just fine for finished products, too, and the options for colors, configurations, and decorations are nearly limitless. This slick custom Raspberry Pi case was made by a 12-year-old.

  1. Love that brass enclosure.

  2. I’ve done a couple of enclosures I’m proud of. First was my wooden logic probe (http://www.galacticstudios.org/wooden-super-probe/) and second was my Windows PC inside a miniature case resembling and Altair 8800 (http://www.galacticstudios.org/mini-altair-8800-pc/)

  3. Nice! We just made an enclosure from a drum module enclosure out of an NES Advantage controller…. http://weareaudiobody.com/this-is-not-what-you-think-it-is
