    Great idea! Hopefully you'll get a few new people into modding!

    That sounds rather lovely, well thank you bit-tech! Even with my very limited means, I do think I will give this a try! I've been thinking for a while to get one anyway, as they're so cheap. Now I got a great motivation - build a case, maybe get lucky and win an Rpi - if not, I'll just buy one then anyway!

    Think it will be extremely interesting to see what people come up with! It is the same base for everyone, I think this will challenge modders to get really creative, to stand apart! Here's to hoping there'll be many entries!! :)

    Well while I can feel the pain of anyone who is not qualified to win the Pi based on geographical location, as a United States citizen I can say thank you for finally stretching your shipping to us modders across the pond :)

    Woop, recently bought a RPi and have been planning/playing with a case idea from some bits and bobs I have lying around. Think I might give it a go if time permits :D

    The precise measurements are a bit useless as they don't provide the size of the board!

    to what accuracy is the 85mmx56mm?

    From the Raspberry Pi review:
    As for accuracy, I measured a first-run Model B board with my callipers, so pretty accurate. One thing I didn't mention in the review here was the height, which is bang-on 17mm to its highest point (the top of the Ethernet port.)

    ah ok, I'm finding the "precise Dimensions" very lacking. like the length of the RCA(?) jack and all the dimensions regarding the GPIO pins.

    I may just have to buy one of these boards :L

    Have you looked at the SketchUp model?

    I'd thought about it but felt like it was cheating a bit!

    In what way would it be cheating as the sketchup model is posted in the article?
