Raspberry Pi enthusiasts that are looking for inspiration on how to steampunk there single board mini PC, may be interested in a new project that has been published over on the Instructables website for an awesome Steampunked Raspberry Pi.
Created by Instructables user Baby38 the system features a wooden enclosure and is equipped with a retro ear trumpet to to amplify sound from the speaker and audio system.
Its creator Baby38 explains a little more :
This is an old dream: put a multimedia system in a wood box to have a very new device featuring a very old one I have seen in a photo market in Vienne near Lyon in France (which you know is the country where was first invented photography and cinema YES !)
First I bought a Raspberry PI, then came up at the back of my attic where my “laboratory” is waiting for a new idea. What a mess on this table! Anyway, put the Pi in an old wood box, fix some old 5V regulator, add a small monitor, a USB hub, a WiFi dongle, a USB key full of films, images, mp3 files and install LINUX OPENELEC 4.0 in a couple of minutes. Here we are!
