The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card-sized single-board computer that plugs into a screen or TV and a keyboard. Developed in the UK by the Raspberry Pi Foundation, with the intention of stimulating the teaching of basic computer science in schools, it runs the Linux and soon the Android operating systems.

Say Xanthakis and Aniontinder, "It costs only 25 pounds and is a revolutionary product and a huge success. Raspberry Pi is great, but it needs a good case to complete it, that is why we have designed the perfect one: Sweetbox."

"We had the idea of a case for the Raspberry Pi that would be like a skin wrapping the components. We wanted it to be easy to grab and to handle, something more than a bulky box, a small and elegant object."

"We submitted it to all sorts of tests to make it resistant to the forces of nature. We chose a sturdy, translucent polyamide material to produce this 'frozen' effect on the components and give it a soft texture."

"Its closing is simple, solid and intuitive, two pieces clipping together perfectly in one easy move. We have created a device that looks like no other, its different thicknesses giving structural strength to the case and slightly revealing its contents."

"The Sweetbox is designed to embrace the Raspberry Pi rather than to hide it. Furthermore, we integrated three tailor-made copper heatsinks that you can easily mount on your Sweetbox, in order to keep the raspberry chilled and extend its lifetime." More at Kickstarter.
