The Raspberry Pi Original Case was designed out of the common need for enclosures to protect Raspberry Pi’s, complemented with the classic red and white colours of the brand. While this enclosure is primarily built to protect the Pi and provide it with sufficient space to dissipate heat within, it also offers a very clean, tidy and Raspberry themed presentation, which can certainly boost the aesthetic appeal of your projects as well – an important aspect for college projects or business-related demonstrations.

As with previous case models and their Pi partners, this case is designed specifically for the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B and has light tubes in the necessary places to carry the light from the status LEDs to the surface – allowing you to easily identify whether the power is on or the system is active. Additionally, by design there is space included within the enclosure for extra heat sinks and small accessories, which ensure that you can keep your Raspberry Pi safe from both external damage and heat.

Typical Applications for the Raspberry Pi Red & White Original Case:

Although there aren’t a lot of unique ways to utilize the Raspberry Pi Original Case aside from its typical use, some Makers do enjoy personalizing their cases to appear more retro-styled. As such, home projects involving this case include:

  • Turning a Raspberry Pi into an old NES game console that can play downloaded ROMs and use WiFi remote controls – A little bit of retro with a modern touch.
  • Using the Case as the basis for the head of a robot, in which the Pi would be the brain.
  • Building a basic computer system for your car, with a Raspberry Pi powering your touch screen display and controlling your audio or other media.

The Raspberry Pi Original Case is perfect the way it is, but that certainly doesn’t mean that you, as a Maker, shouldn’t make it even better. So, whether you want to keep the classic look or step it up by adding your own custom flavour to the case, this model is a great starting point as it snugly and tightly fits the Pi 3 Model B and keeps it safe from shock, environmental and direct contact damage.

The primary aim of The Raspberry Pi Foundation is to enable people from all walks of life to understand, learn and develop our digital world with ideas that actually matter to them. Their single-board computers are designed with an open-source style, while being both easy to use and versatile. This allows people to build their own systems to cater to unique problems within their environment, while allowing them to share with and learn from others who are building similar types of systems – growing and developing the open-source movement in every step of the way.


The Raspberry Pi Foundation also takes their initiative a step further by building accessories like cameras, control interfaces and other products that can be seamlessly integrated into projects, made with high quality components but without the unnecessary frills that many brands choose to add on for “extra value”. This “no frills” approach makes their products more affordable while catering to consumers throughout the world, regardless of their financial condition. In doing so, people in almost any situation can use these products to improve their lives, better the world around them, and help develop both their local communities, as well as online communities of Makers.


Finally, like the cherry (or perhaps raspberry) on top of an already-great Sundae, The Raspberry Pi Foundation utilises the profits that they make to sponsor and host outreach and education efforts, with the intent to help people by making computing and digital development more accessible. They train educators and offer free resources online for people to learn from, giving consumers the power to change the world around them, and ultimately do their small part in developing the ever-expanding digital world too.
