Case with LCD screen on it and close-able ports

Basically, I want a case with either an LCD screen in it, or with a gap for a LCD screen. And I want all outputs to have an enclosure, so that if there is nothing plugged in that port no dust can get in.

I hope somebody knows what I want and maybe can make one.

Thank you,
~Kennard11

I think I understand what you want, I also want the same thing (except I want it to be a touchscreen ;-) ) The answer is that no one has made anything like this yet, but it's a worthwhile case. I'm thinking it should be done with some thin aluminum bent to the correct shape. Even a thin amount of aluminum should be sufficient to hold the weight of the pi and a small screen. That said, I think it will have to be something we design ourselves ;-)

Edit: Just noticed what subforum this was posted in! My bad :oops:
Dear forum: Play nice ;-)

I wouldn't mind having a machined aluminum case with vents on the underside and/or top, and dust filters for those vents. Preferably I'd like the vent on the top to be shaped like the Raspberry Pi logo.

Do we have a touch screen with .TFT connectors and what dimensions would it be?
Thinking of designing a case in 3D.

Sorry for my bad english.

Hi all,

Just saw this post and although I'm 12 months behind, apologies, the company I work for are looking at creating raspberry pi aluminium enclosures. We have done one already and are looking to add these to our product list in 2014. Here is a image of our enclosure on twitter:

Would love to hear your feedback on this.

Kind regards,
Ian
