  • Boreatton scouts' Raspberry Pi Lego case

    The Raspberry Pi, which is all about what's inside a computer, doesn't come with a case.

    Alan Herbert's daughter Isabelle, who is also part of the team, decided to fix that. She designed an enclosure for the tiny PC using Lego. The picture above shows the Raspberry Pi loaded into the box as it's being built.
