Re: Case incorporating AdaFruit 16x2 LCD Plate

If there was sufficient interest, then maybe yes I could - but I'd need to get hold of approriate switches etc to make the holes the correct size, and I'd need at least 10 people interested in such a case to make it worth my while. However, I'll keep it in mind and see how it goes :) Cheers mrlinux2...

Re: Case incorporating AdaFruit 16x2 LCD Plate

Bit of an update.. I've got my adafruit display and I'm in the process of getting some test samples cut, so I hopefully will post some pics next week. I'm also working on a Pibow add-on that'll let you use the adafruit display in that type of case as well, it'll look similar to the attached pic, but...

Re: Stackable Cases

Just got my 1st multi-pi hybrid back, this now allows you to stack Pibow cases (acts as a replace bottom layer) as well as bare Raspberry Pi motherboards, there's also an option to stack modmypi cases as well.

Should be going on sale soon, in the mean time enjoy the pics..

There's a good chance I'll be doing a small production run (10 pibow add-on kits) in the next few weeks assuming there's enough interest, if you'd like to PM me and I'll add you to the list of potential customers.

It's only for the revision v1a shields so far (need to order a v1b off texy). If there's enough interest I'...

Hi Omega, Glad you like it :) I think it looks better sitting on-top as it gives more room to wire things up behind then 'scenes' as it were. If you'd like to, you can buy t...

Got my 1st test samples back today :) I've attached some quick pics to show you what it looks like - as you may notice the bezel sits about the LCD by about 1mm, this can be reduced so it sits just above the LCD. Quick question, since I've never designed a bezel before, is it better if it sits above...
