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 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 white color. We have had a large number of you asking for different colored Pi Tins so we wanted to deliver! These opaque white Pi Tins are perfect for blending your Raspberry Pi into a white surface, giving your project a sleeker look.
The enclosure provides slots to access the peripheral header, USB ports, Ethernet, SD card, HMDI, composite video, audio, CSI and JTAG 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 through the case thanks to light pipes embedded 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!
Note: This Pi Tin is for the Raspberry Pi Model B only and will not fit over the Raspberry Pi B+ or RPi2.
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.

Weeks of serving as a wireless access point via easytether-usb had demonstrated a need for something to protect the pi as it was gettung pulled off the bench by the phone or usb hub when it got too close to the edge. The tin takes care of it now.
