A Look Inside Pimoroni, the Pibow Factory

The Raspberry Pi blog has a guest post by the owner of Pimoroni.  The post is all about the Pibow factory where they make a ton of Pibows, and how the two owners had to quickly adapt to high demand.

The prototype work on the Pibow was done with the help of the Refab Lab at Access Space in Sheffield. This helped us get from an idea on the computer to reality. It’s also validated the rate of production, so we knew that laser cutting would allow us to make a decent number of units per day if things got busy.

The interest from Pi owners after the post on the front page of Raspberry Pi meant our ‘crazy’ figure of maybe 1000 orders looked a bit laughable. New pants were needed at this point and a new plan.

 

The Pibow is a colorful, durable and fun case for the Raspberry Pi® computer that is perfectly in touch with the ethos of the Raspberry Pi. The case is crafted out of seven unique colorful layers with a transparent top and base.
