Since its debut in 2012, the Raspberry Pi is one of the coolest tech gadgets available. The device basically offers users an affordable $20 PC-on-a-card for a wide variety of uses. The creators themselves have taken the amazing little device a step further this week. They are now offering an official case add-on for the Raspberry Pi that will basically convert it into a fully functional mini-PC.
For less than $9 bucks ($8.59) the new Raspberry Pi case includes connections for ethernet, USB and more. It was created directly for the Raspberry Pi makers by a company called Kinneir Dufort. Here's a quote from Gordon Hollingworth (Director of Software for Raspberry Pi),
Two and a half years ago, I found myself sitting in a car with Eben Upton about three days into my new job at Raspberry Pi. We discussed – among other things – everything we wanted to do with the Raspberry Pi hardware and with the products around the Pi.
One of the things we discussed was an official Raspberry Pi case. We thought that it would be great to create something affordable, but with the kind of real beauty and design that our products try to encompass.
