Hi all, I started this just after Christmas when I was brought my pi3b. I somehow wrecked my 3B so ended up buying a b3+ and below is my attempt, be kind I have NO EXPERIENCE in electrics or building projects like this. I have seen many projects and thought they looked rediculous with leads coming out the back and rough cuts everywhere. I also have no access to a 3d printer so I thought I thought I would make my own version.

I bought a PlayStation One case from eBay for £10 and stiped it bare except the board with the power switch, the reset switch and power input.

It is an SCPH1002 so I had a challenge straight away as once taken apart there was a hole in back! To combat this I cut a DVD case up and then made holes to place the Ethernet and HDMI female sockets into. I then got an old power supply that fed 12v and connected it to the Playstation power lead. this made it DC, hence the blackening on one pin as seen in the pic. Using my lads unused Meccano I connected two boards to drop the 12v to 5v to feed the Pi and to feed a USB hub I have yet to include. I fitted a 1tb hard drive and fitted the Pi so I can access the micro card via the door at the back again using my lads Meccano. I connected two USB females hidden behind the PS1's memory card flaps and I originally connected the original PS1 controller ports, however they worked on my 3b, but not my 3b+ so I unconnected them as I use wireless PS3 controller anyways. I fitted a 12v fan in the top and fixed the lid so it could not open. Where the button was to open the lid I placed a switch but still not sure what to use it for. The PS1 power button turns of the Pi, the PS1 reset resets the Pi, just above the power input I placed another small switch so I can turn off all the power. I sprayed the body matt black and the lid and buttons black gloss to give it a nice look. I am also yet to cover the LED's inside and add one that shows power on like the original PS1.

I'm happy with it, what do you think?

Any questions?
