Hobbyists, makers and developers that enjoy building projects using the awesome Raspberry Pi single board mini PC are sure to enjoy this new computer and Pi camera case which has been designed by industrial designer Tom Murray based in Philadelphia.
Called the SmartiPi this latest Raspberry Pi case provides plenty of protection for the Raspberry Pi B+ and camera and allows you to mount your mini computer pretty much anywhere you need it. Check out the video after the jump to learn more about the features of this unique Raspberry Pi case that is compatible with Lego and GoPro mounts.
“If you have been looking for a great case for your new Raspberry Pi B+, then I have something special for you. The SmartiPi is an affordable case packed with tons of features. It is a two part, injection molded plastic case which screws together. It also has an optional holder for the official Raspberry Pi camera. The cases in the photos are painted 3D printed prototypes.
I already have manufacturing ready to start building the molds. All I need it the capital to make it happen. The final case will be ABS plastic. Two 2 x 6 Lego compatible plates will be permanently embedded in the case. The 6 x 10 plate can be snapped off the top to access the inside.”
