The Raspberry Pi is everybody's favorite little computer, the last thing that you'd want is for something bad to happen to it. Why not protect it with one of these snazzy plastic enclosures? These cases protect the Raspberry Pi 3, the RPi 2, and Model B+ from things like rogue wires that might short it out while still allowing full access to the board! Simply snap the RPi into the bottom half of the enclosure, then snap the two sides together.
As you may have noticed, these Pi Tins are actually an opaque black color. These opaque black Pi Tins are perfect for blending your Raspberry Pi into a black surface, giving your project a sleeker look.
The enclosure provides slots to access the GPIO peripheral header, USB ports, Ethernet, SD card, HMDI, 3.5mm jack, and CSI connectors as well as feet and vents to ensure the board gets proper cooling and plus-shaped wall mounting slots. All of the status LEDs on the Pi are visible slots in the design. This is a really slick case and once you've gotten your hands on a Raspberry Pi, you'll want to snag one of these to put it in!
Whether it's for assembling a kit, hacking an enclosure, or creating your own parts; the DIY skill is all about knowing how to use tools and the techniques associated with them.

Will this fit a Pi3?
Oddly enough I just watched a Pi 3 get tested with one of those, came back to my desk and saw your comment. It works just fine, the form factor doesn't seem to have changed at all between the 2 and the 3.
