A List of Top 5 Raspberry Pi Cases Available Now @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi
After reading a favorites list on a topic we love, we can’t help put together our own personal list (even if only in our heads). Looks like we’re not alone! In response to Life Hacker’s recently published list, Recantha has put together a list of his favorite Raspberry Pi cases out there now. Check out the list here!
I’m covering only cases that are available right now, so beautiful cases like the one myself and @Geeky_Tim got from The Pi Hut don’t qualify (as that one is not available any more). I’ve tried to give links to The Pi Hut to buy them where I can as they’re my local, recommended supplier for Pi bits, but you can get these cases from many different suppliers.
Many great cases made the list! Including The PiBow, sold here at Adafruit!
The PiBow was designed by Paul Beech, who designed the original Raspberry Pi logo. It is made up of layers of acrylic (hard plastic) that you fit around the Pi, building it up as you go. It leaves all the ports accessible, including the GPIO if you use a ribbon cable to break it out. The PiBow comes in a variety of colours including: rainbow (pictured), ninja (black), toxic (kind of a greeny-yellow), crystal (white clear), special Adafruit (dark turquoise) and timber (wooden).
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
