Cool stuff of the day

My daughters played a lot with their “Polly Pocket” in their young ages ! An endless perspective of gaming nicely packed in a hand palm format. Which translates into this portable lab case… in the the Arduino’s world ! Isn’t it cute ? More on the Arduino UNO Portable Lab Case >here<

MicroFAN (Part 1)

Part 1, 2, 3 We gained quite a lot of experience after printing few kilometers of ABS on our Makerbot 2x. Controlling the temperature inside the cabinet solved a lot of problems. After few attempts, we decided to modify the printer by adding a fan on top of the transparent cover. The fan is turned […]

Arduino Enclosure (Part 6)

Part 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 One step ahead, Limor advertised and makes an awsome product available in her already famous shop. Now introducing the SUGURU! Sugru is like modeling clay when you take it from its pack. Once it’s exposed to air, it cures to a tough flexible silicone overnight using the moisture in the air. Working time = […]

Arduino Enclosure (Part 5)

Part 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 Here are some details about the data logger style enclosure that I am using for prototyping projects. It uses the same box than the one described here, The difference is only with the front panel which has neither display nor rotary encoder. The device shall be almost exclusively remotely controlled. However, it has a […]

Arduino Enclosure (Part 4)

Part 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 Using the same standard enclosure as before, let’s insert the components from the previously studied user interface: 2×16 characters LCD and rotary encoder. They fit marvelously well! Opening a window in the front panel is the only awkward task. Be patient, use proper cutting tools (e.g. Xacto knifes), watch you fingers! After considering several […]

Arduino Enclosure (Part 3)

Part 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 As usual, it is when I am looking for something that I find something else! NKC Electronics and Smart Electronics are selling a cute enclosure here and here. From what I see, it may be difficult to add displays and commands. On the other hand, it looks very compact and rugged. Lextronic and some […]

Arduino Enclosure (Part 2)

Part 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 Here are some more information related to the type of box that I am using for protecting my Arduino boards and shields. This is the box, made of two identical, fully symetrical shells and their two sliding sides: It is roomy enough for one Arduino board that you can firmly bolt on to the […]

Arduino Enclosure (Part 1)

Part 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 Real life testing of Arduino based prototype often requires a minimal protection of the board and some pannels for holding buttons, connectors and displays. The box must be able to contain an Arduino board and a proto shield at the minimum, and leave some apertures for the power supply input and the USB connector. […]
