Raspberry Pi (RPi) has been quite a hot gadget recently. I could not help but get one from element14. It is a single-board computer with a 700MHz processor. Unlike the Arduino, it is more of a computer for higher level programming and more complex computation. Arduino is more of a micro-controller with rich I/O interface.
I also bought a shell for my RPi.
Inside the box.
Snap the Raspberry Pi on bottom of it.
Put the lit up.
It is well protected.
After having a second look at the case, I regretted a bit. All the control I/O ports are covered. I want to make some control projects using the I/Os. That means I have to buy another case or I have to make some openings on it. If you are not a pure software geek but want to solder some hardware and connect it to the RPi, you should consider buying a case with openings at those I/O ports. Like this one.
P.S. – If you buy the same Raspberry Pi case like mine, you have to snap the board to the bottom first though putting the board in the bigger cover is more tempting. Just like what I did it wrongly at the first attempt.
