Shortbread

Mon Dec 10, 2012 2:18 am

One of the best cases I've come across has to be Shortbread which is currently languishing and lacks support
http://www.indiegogo.com/shortcrust/x/1874378

I know spending almost as much on a case as for the RPi seems strange but Shortbread does have two major attractions:
the SD card is well protected and doesn't protrude from the case
the power connection is switched to the end of the case - three cables together

I've no interest or involvement in the Shortbread other than wanting one :-)
Please have a look and support this project. Maybe a miraculous turnaround will see it go into production and I'll get one! :D

This seems more appropriate in Cases than Announcements, moved.

"Short Crust Case"

Thu Dec 13, 2012 4:19 pm

Hi All,

I'd just signed up to shamelessly plug my friends case only to find someone beat me to it!

The "Short Crust Case" looks pretty slick, get on board as I'd like to see the 2x I've ordered 8-)

I am hoping this case reaches the goal. I think it is one of the best cases for the Raspberry Pi I have seen. The cable routing and the SD card are definitely the best solution I have seen.

I got a few naked RasPis that need this :!:

I really really like this case as well :) (And no I'm not affiliated at all). I can't donate at the moment, but I really do hope it succeeds :)

I threw $34 at it. Hope it reaches its goal. I'd really like a custom Shortbread case.

This is the nicest case I've seen so far, hope they get what they need in the next 17 days

I love this case. The power rerouting is a stroke of genius.

If you want an XBMC-based media hub in the living room, this one is easily the most professional looking.
Unfortunately, although the contributions are inching up (25% achieved), it starts to look like a long shot.

Nevertheless, I urge everyone to give it a shot since all contributions will be returned if the goal is not reached.

Not affiliated of course, but, darn it, I want this case made!!
