Official Raspberry Pi Case Now Available for $9

The Raspberry Pi Foundation has announced an official Raspberry Pi case for the Raspberry Pi Model B+ and Raspberry Pi 2 that costs just $9. With over 5 million Raspberry Pis sold, there are already  number of unofficial cases are available such as the excellent FLIRC case. However, the official Raspberry Pi case is different with its focus on working in a wide variety of use cases.

Teaming up with the designers at Kinneir Dufort, the official Raspberry Pi case consists of four separate elements. The cases’ main section (in Raspberry red) holds the Raspberry Pi itself. 3 removable white panels allow you access the various GPIO pins and interfaces on the Raspberry Pi itself. The case is made from injection-moulded ABS plastic and also features LED light pipes and rubber feet to keep the case securely in place.

For those of you who want one, the official Raspberry Pi case is available from US (Newark, AlliedMCM Electronics) and UK (Swag Store, Element14RS Electronics) retailers. Expect demand to be pretty high however.
