If you have already ordered your new Raspberry Pi Zero mini PC which was officially launched by the Raspberry Pi Foundation earlier today. You might need something to protect it from damage while creating projects or transporting it from one venue to another.
If you do then the newly unveiled Raspberry Pi Zero protector casing which has been designed by Adafruit might be worth more investigation and is available to purchase for $3.95.
The protection is not quite a full case but is rather a pair of protective transparent acrylic layers that can be added to your Raspberry Pi Zero mini PC to protect it from damage on the top and bottom. Adafruit explains a little more :
Now that we’re carrying the Pi Zero, PaintYourDragon is back with another gorgeous laser-cut masterpiece. This time he’s taken a pass at a Pi Protector for Raspberry Pi Zero, not quite a full case, it will keep your Pi Zero safe and svelte.
Keep your Raspberry Pi® Zero computer tidy and safe in this lovely clear acrylic enclosure. We designed this simple protector to be beautiful, easy to assemble and perfect for any use (but especially for those who want to carry their Pi around in their pocket!) This enclosure is only compatible with the Raspberry Pi Zero!
The case is as minimal it gets coming in just two pieces of acrylic that secure with four screws. Made of crystal-clear acrylic, this case keeps the Pi Zero secure. You can use all of the connectors on the edges of the Pi: mini HDMI, microSD slot, micro USB power, and microUSB port. There’s also a cut out to allow a 2×20-pin header to be soldered onto the Pi Zero.
