THORIN - an Oaken Shield for the Raspberry PiThe deceptively budget-conscious, and yet exquisite Thorin is a series of Oaken Shield cases for the Raspberry Pi. In a throwback to the origins of the original chips, this case comes in three designs to reflect the ARM chip's progress.•OakNut - similar to the symbol used by Acorn Computers, developers of the original ARM chips - or Acorn RISC Machines as they were then known.•Cog – reflecting the operating system designed for the original ARM chips, and still going strong and under active development today•Berry – a reference to where the ARM chip is widely used today in the computing field.Thorin Oaken Shields are made from oak veneered MDF, cut to shield the surfaces of the Raspberry Pi B+/2B/3B/3B+, with designed cut-outs to allow cooling from the warmest components. Even the spacers that raise the shield from the bed of the Pi are cut from oak veneer. There’s even space under the shield to add a cooling fan, especially useful for those who want to overclock their Pi.The original Thorin fits all Pi model Bs from the B+ up to the Pi3B+. The Thorin IV is a Raspberry Pi 4B version of the original Oakenshield, again available in oak.There is a semicircular cutout to allow easy removal of the SD card, on the base plate and cut-outs for the GPIO pins (and PoE pins).Each kit is supplied with the veneered base plate, custom cut-out top plate and 8 spacers, along with 4 screws and 4 nuts to hold everything together. As a result of customer requests, The Thorin range is now also available in coloured and clear acrylics, glass effect acrylic and other wooden veneers..
