The background was inspired by her love of hunting and archery.

So of course I had to take it apart for installing a good 5v power supply, tapping off of the 14v adapter that plugs into it.   I didn't see a good way to mount it at first (where'd that VESA standard go?), so I mounted a piece of acrylic stood off the back of the case by about an inch.   The Pi, and the rest are mounted to that.   Not a bad deal.   I had an extra #RaspberryPi model B hanging around, and donated that to the project, as well as about 2 meters of RGB #NeoPixels from #Adafruit.
