“Blimey! There’s a flotilla off the port bow! Man the crow’s next and batten down the mizzenmast,” we yelled when a box of these came in. Then we opened the box and realized they were just Raspberry Pi cases from our good friends at Pimoroni!
The Pibow Coupé Flotilla is the nautical blue version of the fantastically red Coupé. Like most pibow cases, this case is laser cut from high-quality acrylic that’s stacked one on top of the other to protect your Model B+ or Pi 2 while also allowing you access to its primary ports – including the camera and GPIO. No tools are necessary and the Coupé Flotilla is super lightweight at 61 grams.
Remember, this enclosure is only compatible with the Raspberry Pi Model B+ and Raspberry Pi 2! Raspberry Pi not included.

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.
