If you've recently bought a Raspberry Pi 3, one of your first tasks is to get some protection for that vulnerable green board. An exposed Pi is susceptible to damage from static, dust and straight forward knocks, bumps, and spills. Here is a list of some of the lesser-known cases on the market to help you find something a little more unique than the standard plastic options. 01 of 07 KKSB Stainless Steel The KKSB Raspberry Pi Case. ModMyPi Laser cut. Steel. Black. What more could you want in a case? The KKSB cases are designed in Sweden (You know, the same place that makes the cool IKEA furniture) and are made of laser cut steel which is then powder coated for a nice clean finish. All ports are accessible, there's an exit slow for GPIO and camera module cables, and there's even a cut out for the new Pi 3 WiFi antenna to avoid the metal case causing a loss of signal. A smart, robust and solid design for your Raspberry Pi. 02 of 07 Anidees Unibody The Anidees Unibody Case. Anidees If you've got a glass TV unit, what better way to compliment it than this glass-topped Raspberry Pi case? Anidees offer this milled aluminum case in either silver or black, with a clear or smoked UV resistant glass panel respectively. It's possibly one of the only glass Raspberry Pi cases available! It comes with noise absorbing feet, has cutouts for all of your ports and is supplied with a USB cable including a switch. A stylish case option for your lounge - great for media center setups. 03 of 07 Zebra Virtue The Zebra Virtue Case. C4Labs A mix of layered plastics and woods sets this case apart from others, not to mention the included hardware. The intricate laser engraved detail and cutouts make this case hard to ignore. A 5-volt fan sends a constant flow of air against your Raspberry Pi, enhanced by the heatsinks which come with the case. All ports are accessible and the case includes a pass-through for GPIO and camera cables. 04 of 07 Short Crust Plus The Short Crust Plus case. Short Crust The Short Crust Plus is a subtle and stylish plastic Raspberry Pi case, continuing the line from the original Short Crust. The simple exterior hides handy features such as a completely covered SD card, smoked top cover and extendable sidewalls. The case allows access to all ports and requires no tools to assemble. 05 of 07 Multicomp Pi-BLOX The Pi-BLOX Case. ModMyPi The Pi-BLOX case is mostly just a simple plastic home for your Raspberry Pi, but has 2 key features that make it totally unique. The top section is covered in LEGO compatible studs, meaning you can incorporate your LEGO designs with the GPIO of the Raspberry Pi - LEDs, sensors and more. There is also space to mount a Camera Module, allowing even more creativity with the case. Perfect for kids! 06 of 07 ModMyPi Head Case The ModMyPi Head case. ModMyPi If you want something totally different, ModMyPi makes a range of these head cases for your Raspberry Pi. Apart from being a big face case, the Head Case comes with a self-assembly PCB and two 10mm LEDs to light up the inside of the head. The included color filters allow you to change the color of the interior glow. 07 of 07 Geauxrobot Dog Bone Case The Geauxrobot Dog Bone case. Amazon If you're lucky enough to have more than one Raspberry Pi, you may want to stack them. This could be for reasons such as clustering or running them as servers. The Geauxrobot Dog Bone case lets you do exactly this. Using simple layers and spacers, you can stack as many Raspberry Pis as you like. The design leaves a little to be desired in terms of protection, but it's a great option for multiple Pi casing.
