The Raspberry Pi is a full system with all the needed ports that's about the size of a credit card. It's definitely cheap, but it's not exactly pretty. 3D printing community have come up with a range of designs ready to 3D print for the linux board.

A designer named tastic007 has created an awesome NinTastic case for a Raspberry Pi, inspired by the classic game console, Nintendo Entertainment System. "This case was designed specifically in creating a RetroPie gaming system, which combines a number of video game emulator technologies into a single Raspberry Pi based solution." notes tastic007.

The NinTastic case for a Raspberry Pi is made of 3 parts that can easily snap together: the top, bottom, and flap. Modeled in Tinkercad, the 3D-printable case holds a Raspberry Pi: Model B and is super easy to hookup. The two-color flap is printed face up with rafts and supports, using the pause-to-change-filament feature on the makerbot replicator - pausing print at 96% to switch out filament for different color.

You can access the SD card slot through the flap, and there are also different holes designed for the USB, HDMI, and Ethernet ports of a Raspberry Pi Model B. Check out the detailed guide on the build and download the stl files here on Thingiverse.
