3D Printed Raspberry Pi Case Pays Homage to Classic NES Console


If you follow Raspberry Pi projects, you know that there’s no dearth of creative cases for the inexpensive Linux board. In fact, there’s an entire subreddit dedicated to Raspberry Pi enclosures. I, for one, have seen more than my fair share of them, but the one pictured above caught my eye. Created by Thingiverse user tastic007, the NinTastic case for a Raspberry Pi is inspired by the classic game console, Nintendo Entertainment System.

The 3D-printable case is made of three parts that snap together: the top, bottom, and flap. Smartly, the SD card slot is accessed through the game cartridge flap and, of course, there are holes for accessing the USB, HDMI, and Ethernet ports of a Raspberry Pi Model B. If you need a case for your Pi-based MAME project, or you want to make your own version of Duck Hunt, the NinTastic case is a clear winner. [via Adafruit]
