Spooky MintyPi

Post by Hippo » Fri Dec 14, 2018 12:12 pm

I wanted to be a little fancy, and not go with standard Altoids. After searching every local store, my choices in the right size container were Bacon Scented soap, and Oujia Mystifying mints. I think I made the right choice, but I wonder how it might have gone the other way. I had a lot of fun building it, and I'm ready to build bigger (and smaller) and better things. Unfortunately for me that means I have to sell this one to fund the next one. :( This one will be up on eBay later tonight. https://www.ebay.com/itm/292868771200 . My next project will be a Burger King Gameboy Color. I already have the case, the screen, and started PCB layout. (Of course now I hear they're doing that for us...)

I hope you enjoy looking. Thanks, -Hippo

In keeping with the spooky theme I printed all the parts in glow in the dark plastic.

The Mystifying Mints tin was the coolest I could find. I do really like it more than stock Altoids. The mints tasted okay too...

I found the perfect little zip case to carry it around in.

I opted to do the headphone jack mod. I only really have time to play at night, and don't want to keep my other awake.

Headphones means the switch had to go on the back.

Very nice! Does the tin glow too? I've got a Mystifying Mints tin I'm saving for a V3 but mine's the color of old parchment.

Looks really nice. I like the glow in the dark, and the actual nice white tin. When I built my ouija minty pi it was the same parchment yellow mentioned above hehe.

I wish the tin glowed n the dark. Looked like it might have, but nope. Yeah, I saw the tins again at the halloween store this year, and they had the parchment colored tin. I like this one better.

This looks awesome! Any chance you could link to that zip case? Been looking for something similar :)

I bought the same tin because of this post! Can't wait for my MintyPi parts to come in!! To reiterate what TheTallDragon asked, where did you get the case?

little zip cases can be found here, lots to choose from on ebay and aliexpress, but this is the first link I found. The original seller I bought from no longer exists.
