Mar 30th 2015 at 10:28 PM

With sales of over 5 million, the Raspberry Pi has indeed become very popular and has shown to have served its purpose. These units have become very useful in helping students learn the basics of the use of a computer. It has become a beloved possession and this is clearly shown with the care given to these units and the desire of the owners to continually improve the appearance, with the effort spent on having the choicest Raspberry Pi covers.

Sales of Raspberry Pi covers have been increasing tremendously and this is only fitting since Raspberry Pi covers serve a very important purpose for the owner. To an owner of a Raspberry Pi, a cover offers functional and aesthetic value.

Functional Value

Without first going into its aesthetic value, a Raspberry Pi cover is very essential for protecting the unit. The size alone makes it prone to damage due to mishandling, accidents, drops, and other unexpected causes. Add to this the fact that most of the owners, which may be students, are very active and has the tendency to misplace or leave it just anywhere especially when doing other tasks. Due to these possibilities, the need for a cover to protect these cannot be stressed enough.

With the right Raspberry Pi cover, you are assured of its durability while not limiting the function of the unit. These covers are built from strong materials, whether they are made of wood, plastic, or acrylic. The attachments such as the feet add to its overall functionality. And if there is a need to take out the unit, these Raspberry Pi covers may also be designed to provide easy accessibility.

Aesthetic Value

As a prized possession, it is only natural for the Raspberry Pi owner to have his or her unit look the best. This will surely be a source of great pride and to an extent, an expression of uniqueness. This is so since covers are available in countless designs, colors, styles, and even in the type of material. These covers can be so stylish that it can really enhance the look of the Raspberry Pi.

One advantage of the Raspberry Pi covers is the ability to change covers with ease. So an owner can have numerous covers and take a pick on what cover to use in a given day. So when a new trend arrives, the owner can easily replace this cover and be able to go with the style.

Raspberry Pi Covers Stylish and Functional

May 6th 2015 at 4:45 AM

Did you know that dust is one of the biggest enemies of any computer hardware? Rather than leaving your Raspberry Pi sitting out, exposed to the elements, consider the following stylish, yet functional enclosures and cases that will help you protect the little powerhouse from dust and damage. You will find tons of covers and cases online, mostly available in specialist retail stores, as well as online shops dedicated to Raspberry Pi products and accessories for school use. Whatever you choose raspberry pi covers, make sure to look for practical qualities like durability, port access, and board access, in addition to a stylish design that goes well with your desktop. Here are some of the most popular and stylish Pi cases you will find online:

 

  • The PiBow – Often described as the “unofficial official” Pi case by many, PiBow is a line of cases, specifically designed for the Raspberry Pi. The cases are made out of seven layers of differently colored acrylic, designed to fit the Pi snugly and prevent it from rattling. PiBows have clear acrylic tops and bases so you can still see the computer inside. Single-color PiBow cases are also available for those who want a more discreet look. The PiBow was the brainchild of Paul Beech, the same person who designed Pi's official logo and many other design work for the Pi Team.

 

  • The Short Crust – This beautiful plastic and acrylic case has a sleek design that has utility and cable management in mind. The top cover is a smoked black acrylic, intelligently designed to stand off from the body by a hair, in case you need to run a display cable out of the top. Power can be routed on the same side as the Ethernet and USB ports so the cables can be kept tidy. The SD card can be slot-loaded on the bottom and it comes with a removable cover for video and audio ports to protect them from the elements when not in use. Overall, the Short Crust is a great, handsome and thoughtfully designed case.

 

  • DIY cases – Because there are not many commercially available Pi cases, especially during the computer's early years, many users have taken it upon themselves to build their own Pi-protectors from the most unconventional of materials, ranging from Lego parts to plywood, and other types of soft wood. If you are the DIY type, you can find many great ideas from other pi owners who are generous enough to share their designs online.
