‘sweetbox’ case for raspberry pi computer

 

 

using the raspberry pi as a platform for developing ‘sweetbox’, paris-based designer alexander xanthakis created a translucent polyamide enclosure for the credit-card-sized single-board CPU that plugs into your screen or TV and a keyboard. conceived with the intention of stimulating the teaching of basic computer science in schools, the miniature 35usd computer runs linux with support for an HDMI video output, ethernet connection, RCA, 2 USB ports, a sound card, and an SD card slot to run the system, but comes without a protective case, making the internal components vulnerable to damage. by adding structural strength to the raspberry pi, the device is given extended life and makes it easier to transport without breaking parts.

 

the ‘sweetbox’ is currently seeking funding on kickstarter.
