7" Touchscreen Case and Stand

Sun Mar 20, 2016 9:57 pm

Hi,


I am looking for a well-made case that I can use with the Raspberry Pi 7" Touch Screen Display with 10 Finger Capacitive Touch. So far I have identified below models:

ModMyPi - 7" Touchscreen Case and Stand

Pimoroni - Noir 7" Touchscreen Display Frame
http://www.modmypi.com/raspberry-pi/scr ... play-frame

SmartiPi Touch: A Raspberry Pi Touch stand (will be released in June, it has started as Kickstarter project)
http://smarticase.com/collections/all/p ... 1864926209
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/79 ... ouch-stand

Is it any model around that I am missing and it would fit nicely a Raspberry Pi 3 in the back? I would prefer that RPI3 to be inside the case and not to be visible. SmartiPi looks really nice.

Regarding the RPI 7" Touchscreen Display, would be good to keep this one, or to get a large one? Note that I am looking for it to be compatible with a RPI3 and to have very good screen quality, including touchscreen functions.

PS: I am looking forward to get a RPI3 and start playing with it soon. :D

@rpiMike: for this model, I guess that the Rpi processor might get overheated as it's a non-ventilated enclosure.

I am using the omni design case, with no issues at present with the RPi3, the only thing i dont like and i not sure how other cases are is routing the power to the pi, if you use the GPIO pins it ok but if you want to fit a HAT then it becomes a bit messy
