The Raspberry Pi is low cost micro computer... but it comes without a case. The goal of this project is to design and build a case.

**CURRENT PRODUCTION PROTOTYPE**

100% of mom's agree... Raspberry Pi tastes best in a PiCrust!

"The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It’s a capable little PC which can be used for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It also plays high-definition video. The Raspberry Pi Foundation's goal is to see it being used by kids all over the world to learn programming." **

The Raspberry Pi is a great little micro computer... but it does have one flaw: They all ship without a case.  

This project's goal is to design, develop and mass produce a case to get the cost as low as possible.

Version 1.0 of my Raspberry Pi Case, with Fan Mount (This is the 3d printable model, **Not the final production model**:

Printed Prototype (Notice the lack of curves...):

I've custom built my own 3D printer, and have been turning out print after print of my prototype case design; but this process is slow... Very Slow.  Every case takes me an hour and a half to print.  Which means I have to keep the costs high to keep demand low.

I'd like to reverse that, and get lower priced cases (like, very low priced), into the hands of anyone who wants one.

To get the price low, the answer is simple: bulk.

I need to get enough people interested to get funding to do a mass production run through an injection molder.  This is the only way to drop the price low enough to make it feasible to offer them at this price.

**Old Injection Molded Prototype (Still Changing)

If I don't get enough orders to cover the cost of injection molding; I'll still continue making cases on my 3d printers... I'll just make a lot less of them.

So... what do you think?  Are you in?
