Here are a couple of photos to show my Raspberry Pi/ZX Spectrum+ case project. After the initial novelty of owning a shiny new RPi wore off and the cheap case I bought broke, I started looking for something practical to do with it and here is the result. Some things are a bit rough & ready and there are quite a few improvements I'd like to make, such as better keyboard mapping, better Wifi and a better power supply configuration, it's working and useable for now however. I have a real passion for these machines going back the best part of 30 years and they have taught me an awful lot about microelectronics, diagnostics and fault finding, I love the originals but it's fun to have a 'souped up' version that doubles up as a modern(ish) computer.
