I was impressed by freshly released Raspberry Pi 2 Model B. It has even larger possibilities than previous versions because of it’s quad-core higher speed BCM2836 ARMv7 CPU and twice larger RAM. Also I was very happy that mechanical layout was almost identical to Raspberry Pi Model B+, which means no need to redesign existing enclosure.
This is my second trip to China and I could not resist dedicating a post about it. China is a very beautiful and warm country. Also this is land of “Made in China”, so it is also a land of many many manufacturers. Few days for wandering around and finding out about this country from inside is very little. But I am glad that I was able to go there anyway. It was fantastic experience for me. I would definitely like to stay there for a longer time.
Good news. This beautiful aviation grade sandblasted black anodized Raspberry Pi B+ case is now available. Raspberry Pi fits just perfectly now. This is v2 revision of industrial RPi B+ case. Take a look at some pictures below.
In addition to Logitech C920 case since now I have also custom made IR blocking filters. These are high quality thin (0.2mm) optical glass filters that blocks all IR light. Picture quality
is as good as original filter sourced from Logitech lens assembly, well quality is good enough but filtering range is not that good. First batch mistake – working on improvements.
Yesterday night I received note from DHL that package is cleared. I was so anxious to open it and unpack first case that it was hard to get a sleep. It was even harder to wait until midday when DHL received package from customs department.
