SweetBox is made of strong plastic material so it can protect your Raspberry Pi from shocks and scratches. From the images, it looks robust and smooth. And with the translucent plastic, the status light from the Raspberry Pi is still visible.

Sweetbox is composed from 2 parts, the flat lower part will cover the circuit board and the  upper part will cover almost every part of the Raspberry Pi, leave only the ports and the pins. The 2 parts are clipped together smoothly, without any screws, for easy and quick opening.

The price of a SweetBox is £11 ( or $17) for each, the world wide shipping cost is £3 ($4.5).
