Ready-Made Cardboard Case

Wed Jun 06, 2012 9:40 am


Has anyone noticed that the cardboard box the Pi comes in actually makes quite a good case (with a few holes cut out)? Like some other posters here, I do get a bit nervous enclosing something electronic in cardboard, but even after several hours of use, the whole thing hardly feels warm to the touch.

Yes, I was about to do the same when I found a much more solid Sparkfun cardboard box for an Arduino shield. It too doesn't run cold, and I fully expect all the spiders in the house to make a nice home in it shortly.
