The MI:pro is a simple and compact protective case for the micro:bit. These cases feature a three-layer construction style with ability to wall-mount the whole assembly onto any surface you want while still providing access to all buttons and ports on the micro:bit. Though these cases do feature wall-mountable tabs, the biggest benefit of using a case is to not accidentally short out the pads on the back of the micro:bit.
Construction is simple, requiring only a small flathead screwdriver, and involves layering each plate on top of one another around the micro:bit and screwing it into place. Luckily, the MI:pro case enables easy access to the edge pins at the bottom of the micro:bit, allowing it to still be plugged into an edge connector found on many of our carrier boards. The only board that cannot be used in conjunction with the MI:pro case is the SparkFun gamer:bit due to its edge connector being located in the center of the board.
Note: The MI:pro case only includes the parts found below. This case does NOT include a micro:bit, power source or mounting screws. These items will need to be purchased separately.
- 1x Front Plate
- 1x Back Mounting Plate
- 2x Mid-layer Plate
- 4x M3 Nylon Machine Screw
- 4x M3 Nylon Full Nut
