It seems that until you have a large community behind the project, the SBC board cannot be considered worthwhile. Something similar happened in his time with Raspberry Pi or Arduino and it seems to happen with more Free Hardware boards, however we can say that from now on, the BBC's Microbit board has risen in status (if it is well said) and it can already be similar to other projects such as Raspberry Pi.
Recently a user who loves the British plate has created a housing that anyone can use for your use and enjoyment with the aforementioned plate.
This created case can be built each one through a 3D printer, something that is becoming more and more common among board experts such as Raspberry Pi or Microbit. But also, this time the design will facilitate the use of all Microbit components and even of additions that we make a posteriori.
The new Microbit case is not official but it is quite functional for the user
Thus, the user had added two buttons that serve to turn the plate on and off that the housing takes into account in its design and that we can use for those functions or for other functions that we want and program. The new Microbit housing also makes we can use your connector port in any way we want, making it easy to use to constantly create projects without having to disassemble the casing plate, which is sincerely appreciated.
You can get the design of this case for Microbit here! and for free thanks to its creator. Regarding the plate, Microbit still has some distribution problems, something that makes us unable to get the famous BBC plaque as we would like.
