    Retired Product

    This product has been retired and kept here for reference.

    The Pibow is a durable and fun case for the Raspberry Pi® computer that is perfectly in touch with the ethos of the Raspberry Pi.

    The case is crafted out of seven layers, five of wood and a transparent plastic top and base.

    Each layer is laser cut and once stacked they securely contain a Raspberry Pi while leaving the primary ports accessible.

    Weighing only 85 grams the case is lightweight and ideal for mounting to any surface. Held together by nylon bolts no tools are required for assembly or disassembly.

    • Slim profile
    • Clear top and base to leave Raspberry Pi visible
    • Etched port markings
    • Lightweight
    • High-quality wood + acrylic 'timber' theme
    • Protects your Raspberry Pi
    • Leaves primary ports accessible
    • Beautiful, durable, and most of all fun!
    • No tools required
    • Earlier versions seemed to fit Adafruit's low-profile adapter (as seen in the video) but that may not be true anymore due to design revisions
    • This enclosure is not compatible with the Raspberry Pi Model B+

    A portion of every sale will be donated to the Raspberry Pi Foundation and geek-friendly charities Access Space and the GIST Foundation.

    *Please note: The video above features the original Rainbow Pibow!
