Case that hides everything except ethernet and power ports

Wed Feb 27, 2013 12:36 pm

Hello,
my company is developping a new product that will be based on a Raspberry Pi Model B.

We would like to design a case that provides only an access to the ethernet port (network cable) and the power port (micro-USB). Even the SD card should be hiddent / protected.

I'm pretty sure that a lot of people could find this usefull to prevent customers to see or to have an access to the Inputs / outputs they won't use.

We would like the case in a white plastic and no need for screws to attach the Raspberry Pi.

Any help regarding the design / production / suppliers would be appreciated as we are new in the process of plastic injection and case design.

If another company is willing to share the costs, feel free to contact me.

Hello,
did someone find a case matching this request?
Does anyone know a company that could do this?
Thanks a lot.

What I would like is to have my Pi in a case that just plugs into the ac outlet, much like this: http://pwnieexpress.com/products/pwnplug-elite. I'd probably have a peephole in it if you wanted to use the camera module. If you used wifi, nothing would be exposed. If you really wanted to hide it in plain sight, you'd put an ac outlet on it and slap some kind of power filter, surge protector, power monitor or other label on it that would make it look like it's really something other than a raspberry pi perhaps doing motion sensing camera work or acting as a Tor hub, etc.

I started to work on something like this; thought I could probably incorporate a usb ac adapter into a box, but I got sidetracked with other things that had to get done.
