B+ compatible case and touchscreen

Mon Nov 24, 2014 9:13 pm

Hi, I am a senior in college and for my design project, my group is using a raspberry pi. I was wondering if there were any affordable options for a case and touch screen for the B+ model. Idealy the case would incorporate the screen, which I am thinking will be ~2.8" . Thanks for your input!!

Depending on your budget, you could try one of the Pibow cases and an Adafruit 2.8 TFT resistive touch screen.

There are a whole range of Pibow cases, and as they're made from laser cut acrylic layers, they can be customised. There is a version for the original Model B with the Adafruit TFT screen, for example.

A number of suppliers have the TFT screen available; worth shopping around. For example: http://shop.pimoroni.com/products/pitft ... tAodjRgAeA

Adafruit has two different PiTFT touchscreens. One is resistive at $34.95 and the other is capacitive at $44.95. They have two different cases to house the Raspberry Pi and the PiTFT.

Adafruit PiTFT capacitive touchscreen https://www.adafruit.com/products/1983

Both of these cases are for the B Model not the B+. There is not a case with either screen for the B+ as of yet.

the 2.8 pitft from adafruit is great but its very small and not all that useful from my experiments, i highly recommend the 5" hdmi touchscreen though, im in the middle of making a small pi tablet out of one right now! https://www.adafruit.com/products/2260
