There is a wide selection of cases available for the Raspberry Pi 2 Model B, and many cover up this wonderful piece of technology. So I decided to keep it simple and have gone for the Coupé Ninja PIM066 case from the Pimoroni.com website. It was £8.50.
It protects the top and bottom of the board with a transparent cover. The 4 USB ports & Network port stand above the cover, while the AV and HDMI ports are flush with the cover. The SD Card is easily accessible.
I think it looks pretty awesome and I feel a lot better carrying it around.
Next project for my Raspberry Pi…. Install and host a WordPress website because why the hell not?
I bought a Raspberry Pi model B+ starter kit yesterday.
It came with a full-size USB keyboard, mouse, Wi-Fi Dongle, 4 port USB powered hub, HDMI cable, and standard USB cable and an 8GB sdcard containing NOOBS.
I set it up today, which was dead easy, but to be honest having all the wired hardware (keyboard & mouse, HDMI cable and power cable) plugged in, made the tiny Raspberry Pi board a little messy.
My solution: one Bluetooth dongle + the Ranger Bluetooth keyboard and mouse.
I was going to do a review on this incredible keyboard/mouse/pointer and then remembered I did a review on it a year ago. (See the link above).
