Adafruit BBB Case – Enclosure for Beagle Bone Black: We are thrilled to release Adafruit’s lovely Beagle Bone Black case, designed by Mike Doell (who made our really terrific Raspberry Pi enclosures as well). We wanted a beautiful, elegant case, not just functional but also something you’d really like having on your desk. Gaze lovingly at its square modern ahape & its glossy clear cover!

Adafruit Pi Case- Enclosure for Raspberry Pi Model A or B: We are happy to finally release Adafruit’s lovely Raspberry Pi case, designed by Mike Doell (who made our really terrific Arduino enclosures as well). We wanted a beautiful, elegant case, not just functional but also something you’d really like having on your desk. Gaze lovingly at its curves & its glossy clear cover! Using this case is very easy and works with Raspberry Pi Model A, Model B rev 1 and Model B rev 2. Snap the Pi into the case bottom for a secure press-fit. If you want to poke around you can leave the top cover off.


The Pibow is a colorful, durable and fun case for the Raspberry Pi® computer that is perfectly in touch with the ethos of the Raspberry Pi. The case is crafted out of seven layers with a transparent top and base. Each layer is laser cut from high-quality cast acrylic and once stacked they securely contain a Raspberry Pi while leaving the primary ports accessible

Timber Pibow – Enclosure for Raspberry Pi Computers: The case is crafted out of seven layers, five of wood and a transparent plastic top and base. Weighing only 85 grams the case is lightweight and is made with high-quality wood and acrylic timber theme. Held together by nylon bolts no tools are required for assembly or disassembly.

Adafruit Pibow – Enclosure for Raspberry Pi Computers: The ‘regular’ Pibow is made of a rainbow of plastic. For those of us who are more cyberpunk, the kind folks who make the Pibow have crafted an Adafruit version of translucent blue acrylic. It looks really really cool. Weighing only 92 grams the case is lightweight and ideal for mounting to any surface. Held together by nylon bolts no tools are required for assembly or dissasembly.

Medium Waterproof OtterBox – 2000 / Pursuits 40: Make your project stand up to serious abuse with an otterbox, a true waterproof drybox that is also tough enough to get run over. Made of clear polycarbonate, you’ll be able to keep an eye on any indicator LEDs. We have these in 3 sizes: small (#1000), medium (#2000) and large (#3000). They’re ideal for projects with wireless components like GPS loggers, GPRS/GSM cellular or xbee but can also act as a portable “pack & hack” project box. The OtterBox 2000 has been discontinued and replaced with the “Pursuits 40″ which seems pretty much the same size but has a rubber grip on the inside and more attachment slots.

Large Tin With Clear Top Window: Big project! Big tin! You’ve got too much stuff to fit into a ‘classic’ Altoids-size tin, so you need an upgrade and here it is! This tin is about 3.5″ by 5.5″ so it’s got plenty of space for an Arduino Uno or Mega, or Raspberry Pi, or Beagle Bone, or really any dev board you could think of. The tin is sturdy but easy to punch holes in or cut with tin snips. The clear top is handy to keep an eye on indicators or TFTs. The top is made of a thick plastic film, so you can remove it with a hobby blade.

Large Plastic Project Enclosure – Weatherproof with Clear Top: Store your project safe and sound in this nice weatherproof box with a clear top. We picked up this box because we like the machinable ABS plastic body and tough clear polycarbonate cover, the built in weatherproof gasket seal, and the easy-open screws that can be taken apart as many times as you wish without worrying about cracking or stripping.

Carved’s Robot Doom – IPhone 5/5s Case: This case is hand-crafted from real wood in Elkhart, Indiana. The beautifully etched robot design is combined with a plastic case to ensure protection for your phone; a perfect marriage of aesthetics and function. Although we prefer the robot art on this case, there are many other awesome designs to choose from, plus a feature to customize your own case!


Robot Laptop Sleeve

Barry’s Farm Robot Laptop Sleeve: This Robot Laptop Sleeve, which is made of vinyl and padded with fabric backed foam, is made to custom fit your laptop make and model. That’s not the only customizable option: if you aren’t a fan of the “zorp” speech bubble, you can change what it says to anything five characters or under.
