Cyntech Components has designed a compact, low-cost enclosure for the Raspberry Pi computer. The enclosure, which is available in bright pink or black, has openings for the connectors – including a recessed slot to protect audio and video connections, windows for LED indicators, non-slip rubber feet, and two slots on the back to enable the box to be mounted on a vertical surface. Each box is printed with a Raspberry Pi logo and the two halves are simply pressed together to hold the board in place.
Cyntech’s managing director, Dave Mellor, said, “Raspberry Pi is a ground-breaking computer. We’ve developed this enclosure to complement it perfectly: great performance, attractive functionality and low cost. It adds less than 10% to the cost of the device whilst providing protection for the printed circuit board and ease of use for consumers. It’s a very attractive package too.”
The boxes, sample of which are available within 5 weeks, are precision moulded in high quality ABS and the recommended retail price is GBP 1.99. Cyntech is seeking distributors to market the enclosures to consumers.
