Announcement from Andrew Rawnsley, 22nd October, 2015. The popular PiCano cases for Raspberry Pi saw an update over the summer to support Pi B+ and Pi2. The PiCano case provides a superbly engineered, modern enclosure for your Pi, whilst still giving ample space for connections, upgrades (e.g. clock) and airflow.

If you want to gain a better understanding of the different ways to get RISC OS computers connected – be that to the world beyond your own four walls, or to other systems within them – then a visit to the next Midland User Group meeting might not be a bad idea.
