Official wifi adapter and new official case launched for the Raspberry Pi

I was just browsing around this morning when I discovered that the official Raspberry Pi wifi adapter and the official Raspberry Pi case have both been launched!

The case

The official case, which was launched in beta form at the Big Birthday weekend, comes in several pieces and is white and red in colour. It’s a very well-fitting case and has a detachable side panel to allow you to access the GPIO pins. The top cover can be left off if needed to allow for the use of a HAT or other add-on board. It’s a handsome case and at £6 you can’t go wrong. It’s available from the Swag store.

The wifi dongle

The official wifi dongle is tiny, white and has the Raspberry Pi logo moulded into it. It’s compatible with 802.11 b/g/n networks and works with Raspbian straight out of the box. It’s currently sold out on the Swag store but you can also buy it from The Pi Hut for £6, which is the same price as The Pi Hut’s own dongle.

    The WiFi dongle also works as an ap easily and can even connect to one ap as a terminal and host another ap at the same time..
