If like me you have already purchased the SmartiPi Touch display case which has been specifically designed for the official Raspberry Pi display and provides a great way of housing both your Raspberry Pi mini PC and touchscreen display.
You may be interested in a new accessory which has been created by its developer Tom Murray, to help keep your Raspberry Pi HATs protected once installed on the mini PC.
Watch the video below to learn more about this useful cover which is now available to backfire Kickstarter with pledges starting from just $10 and delivery expected to take place during May 2017.
The SmartiPi Touch HAT cover is an accessory for the SmartiPi Touch case for the official Raspberry Pi display. We funded the SmartiPi Touch in 2016 and have sold thousands worldwide since. Many users have asked for a back cover that would protect HAT boards and the Pi USB ports. We decided we should make it happen. The HAT cover screws into the 100 mm VESA mount holes on the back of the SmartiPi Touch with the included screws.
We are looking for backers to help us make this back cover a reality. The prototype below is 3D printed prototype. We needs backers to help us purchase the mold and first round of production plastic parts. In addition to protecting HAT boards, the cover also has extra space to mount your own custom components. From the back of the SmartiPi Touch (which is flush with the PI GPIO pins) there is 15mm of clearance for HAT boards and additional components.
