The most portable, feature packed carrying case and control center for the Raspberry Pi.

The most featured packed, portable Raspberry Pi carrying case ever. With the included 4.3" LCD screen, and wireless keyboard, you never have to be without your Pi.

After designing foam packaging for various industries and being an avid techy, I have been able to incorporate the best of both worlds. Now you can have a portable command station for your pi, and not have to worry about damage again.

The inside of the case features high density die cut polyethylene foam inserts welded together to provide ample cushioning for even the most rugged adventures.

The die cut interior provides a clean work area that houses the screen, keyboard, and any other accessories you can squeeze. The cut out for the Pi is large enough to support a Pibow or similar sized case, yet small enough to provide a snug, secure fit for your Pi.

Foam Interior for all of your electronics. Raspi not included!

The LCD screen is a 320 x 240 TFT LCD screen perfect for displaying your Pi, arduino board, or any other video source. Low power consumption and dual channel input means you can  use this little screen for an assortment of projects. There is an included power adapter perfect for the car or other trips.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

I have designed and produced foam packaging and similar packaging for over 8 years. During this time I have gained a strong sense for possible delays, potential challenges and obstacles that could arise. These cases will be manufactured using state of the art machinery, and will be assembled and tested by hand before being shipped to the backers. The tooling, cases, and electronics are ready to go and production will start as soon as the funding has been successful. Production will begin immediately and will be supervised by myself every step of the way. These will be produced and assembled in-house, allowing for me to be in complete control the entire time. This way I can ensure everything is done correctly and within a timely fashion.
