The Raspberry Pi mini-computer has taken the tech world by storm, selling out within minutes of going on sale in February and crashing the ordering site in the process.
For those lucky enough to get their hands on the £25 ($39) Linux-based computer, there comes the problem of figuring out how to house it, as it ships without a case.
Fortunately, the Raspberry Pi's creative fans have taken it upon themselves to make, and sell, cases for the device - a move the Raspberry Pi Foundation, the organisation behind the project, is keen to encourage.
"We believe the world runs on entrepreneurship, and hope that from small case companies great things will grow," says the Foundation's Liz Upton.
Pictured above is the Pibow, a 92g case consisting of seven brightly-coloured acrylic sheets that can be stacked together. Produced in Sheffield, a portion of the Pibow's proceeds go back to the Raspberry Pi Foundation.

ModMyPi is a UK-based effort that uses injection moulding to create its cases. The plastic cases come in five colours (though apparently you can request the colour of your choice if there's another you'd prefer) and cost £7.99 ($12.50) each.

Plastic Raspberry Pi case
With no screws required, this is one of the cleanest designs around (and one that allows for multiple Pis to be stacked on top of each other), although at €37.66 (or $46.32), it costs a tad more than the computer it houses.
