“Whoa! Is that a credit-card sized computer inside a sleek, hot-chili red body?” they’ll all be saying, head’s turned toward your Raspberry Pi. “It looks so fast,” they’ll remark admiringly. “It’s like a sports car for your Raspberry Pi!” Humbly, you’ll reply, “Oh that? It’s just the Pibow Coupé – the brand new case from the folks at Pimoroni!”
The Pibow Coupé is an attractive new enclosure for your Raspberry Pi Model B. This enclosure is not compatible with the Raspberry Pi Model B+! The coupé is slim and hackable with a clear acrylic top to show off your Pi.
Like most pibow cases, it’s laser cut from high-quality acrylic that’s stacked one on top of the other to protect your Model B while also allowing you access to its primary ports – including the camera and GPIO. No tools are necessary and the Coupé is super lightweight at 61 grams.
Remember, this enclosure is not compatible with the Raspberry Pi Model B+!

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
