Inspired by the iconic PlayStation 1, Retro Geeks has created a new Raspberry Pi case modelled after the legendary console called the PiConsole, to provide a retro gaming case for your mini PC. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about its design and construction.
The PlayStation Raspberry Pi case is now available to back via Kickstarter with early bird pledges available from £18 or €21. Not only is the Raspberry Pi case inspired by the PlayStation 1 it also features a handy flip up design lid where you would have put in your CD to access the SD card slot on the Raspberry Pi easily.
In my daily life as a professional product designer creating memorable products is my ultimate goal. So why not make a design based on a product that is already memorable? I wanted to pay tribute to the ones that made me have so much fun when I was a kid and introduced me to the world of gaming. You can plug in your controllers in the front, the eject button gives you access to a hidden SD-slot and the power button will fire up the Raspberry Pi. The reset button will safely reboot your Raspberry Pi. All electronics work through a self-written script which can be downloaded through our website.“
