I remember when the Raspberry Pi board first launched, there was no case, and LEGO case designs were popular, and there are certainly various ways you could use LEGO in your projects. But I’ve just discovered LEGO tape that could bring much more flexibility to your design.
It’s just like LEGO, but flexible, and with an adhesive flat side, so you can cut it to any size you want, and stick it anywhere. “Back to Realitee” shop sells those for $12.95 for 1 meter tapes. available in various colors. This allows kids to play differently with LEGO by sticking to wall, or making special shapes.
If times are stuff, and you’d like to spend less, Aliexpress has similar LEGO tapes, with the cheaper ones without a sticky side, so you’d have to use you own double sided sticky tape. Prices start at $0.89 shipped for 25cm, and $3.79 for 1 meter (4x 25 cm). If you want one meter with a 3M sticky side, price goes up to around $10 shipped for one meter or maybe two meters, as Aliexpress makes it unclear.
