About this project

Modee is a simple and robust case for the Raspberry Pi2, the purpose is not to create just another Pi case but to make a robust and affordable design that can be incorporated into industrial applications.  

The idea is to incorporate modee into new and existing automated machinery at a level that is affordable to small manufacturers and startups.  We also hope that this funding will be the first stepping stone in building a range of products for the manufacturing industry.

We also believe that many engineering industries don't use the latest technology due to affordability and that by introducing the Pi to industrial applications through Modee we can automate many conventional processes.

Once assembled the bottom of the case is open which allows easy access to all of the Pi's pins when the case is turned over.  Once all wiring is completed the case can then be flipped back over to conceal any wiring whilst allowing the wires to protrude through the rear of the case.

The case also has 4 mounting holes, the purpose of these holes are to allow Modee to be "bolted" to future machinery & equipment that we are looking to develop for industrial applications.

Modee is a laser cut stainless steel enclosure which will be shipped flat along with fixings and assembly instructions.  By shipping in its flat state we can keep postage costs low and keep manufacturing lead times low.

Risks and challenges

The risks and challenges to this project include obtaining all the components in time, and in large enough quantities, to fulfill the rewards.

We believe we can meet these challenges by locating multiple suppliers and hiring additional support if needed to fulfill the rewards.
