Hello everybody,

The Zebra Case has a few design innovations that allow it to fit better and give your Pi a sleeker look. We decided to give it a more professional look and focus on a great fit. We released it on Amazon in the US initially and the response has been quite positive! It's now on new website http://c4labs.net/products/zebra-case-r ... -black-ice as well as Etsy https://www.etsy.com/listing/200357485/ ... -black-ice

Tell us what you think! We are open to suggestions :)

Thanks
Ed

looks beautiful. my crazy suggestion: somehow have a less-than-double-thickness version which flips open to reveal a screen on top, and has a transparent resistive touchpad on the bottom where that stylish window is. plus a couple of capacitive buttons alongside. an extra couple layers on the bittom vould hold a lipo battery and charging circuit.


Hey. we can all dream...

I think its an acidental typo caused by copying their other item

Engrained have been around a while, from what I have seen they usually make wood cases for the Pi and other devices, but I guess they're breaking into new materials :)

I have FlexPi that I use for a RaspBMC Pi in my lounge, fits in nice with my wood unit:

May I suggest a way to open/close it without screws? I just got this raspberry pi B+ case in transparent blue and it snaps together so I can open/close it really easily.

I actually bought one with my new Pi B+... I think that (asthetically) it is beautiful. It allows you to see the board (although I am sure that advanced users would care less about that), but is pretty sleek. The only 'problem' that I had was having to peel off all the protective coating from the plastic parts. Construction took about 5 minutes, and fits like a glove. All in all, I am pleased with it. But then again, I have not used any other cases either....
