Cases can be made from items such as wood, acrylic or even Lego bricks. Ready-made cases are also available online
The Raspberry Pi is provided as a bare circuit board. Putting the Pi into a case is a good idea, but there is one decision you will have to make first: to buy or to build?
In keeping with the educational ethos of the Raspberry Pi, many owners choose to build their own cases. Some people use thick card folded to form an enclosure, while others use wood or acrylic to create a sturdier casing. A popular choice is Lego bricks, which can be stacked to build a cheap yet extremely protective case.
