The Raspberry Pi mini computer has now got its own official case, making the device even more friendly to use in schools.

While there have been unofficial cases made for the Pi in the past, like the Pi-Top laptop case, this is the first developed closely with the creators.

"We thought that it would be great to create something affordable, but with the kind of real beauty and design that our products try to encompass," said Raspberry Pi director of engineering Gordon Hollingworth on the Raspberry Pi blog.

"So to this end we began the search for a design company who were capable of understanding our requirements and had their eyes firmly fixated on creating a product that achieved those aims."

Raspberry Pi teamed up with T-Zero to develop the case, which is priced at £5.99 and is designed to protect both the Pi B+ and Pi 2 B.

It boasts a red and white colour scheme, cut-outs for all the connection points, including microSD, as well as a plastic LED light protector and stick-on rubber feet for case stability.

The case is available from Raspberry Pi's own Swag Store, element14 and RS Electronics.
