Raspberry Pi enthusiasts looking for a way to protect their Raspberry Pi Zero from damage, may be interested in a new aluminium case complete with keyring for easy portability, which has been designed by JCF Engineering based in the UK.
The minimalist aluminium cases are CNC machined with precision and available in a number of finishes including naked aluminium, black and red. Watch the video below to learn more about the manufacturing process.
JCF Engineering explain more about their Raspberry Pi Zero aluminium case
We have designed and developed an aluminium keychain case for the Pi Zero, machined from billets of 6082T6 grade aluminium. They will be available in either a bare metal state or anodised with a choice of red or black.All parts necessary to complete the assembly will be supplied, including the hex key. All you need to do is provide your own Raspberry Pi Zero. For all backers of the kickstarter campaign we will also provide a lobster clasp key ring.
JCF Engineering is a company I started nine years ago. We are a small precision engineering business that provides machining services for high tech engineering clients. We receive designs and make them reality.
It has always been my ambition to develop my own products. So in 2016 I ventured into product design with my first project the PigiPi Aluminium Screen Stand. Buoyed with its success I started experimenting with the challenge of making a solid metal housing for the Pi Zero. After some prototyping I came up with the design you see here.
Jump over to the Kickstarter crowdfunding website where the new Raspberry Pi Zero aluminium case is available to back with pledges starting from just £12 and shipping expected to take place during April 2017.
