Many of the Raspberry Pi / Arduino enclosures out there are amazing and beautifully made, but most of them aren’t self sufficient. You may need an external battery, solder some buttons on a prototyping board, a screen for displaying whatever data you desire, get a fan for cooling if you’re fancy (you fancy, huh?), possibly an on/off switch, etc. By the time you’re done, you’ve got a huge mess of wires / stuff.
Ladies and gentlemen, I present:
My Personal Companion Cube!
Sides: Front, Left, Top
Sides: Top, Right, Back
Work in progress, but just though I’d throw out some inspiration (first day using the GF - yay!).
2.5" cube, with lots of space inside to put whatever you want.
This one has: Fan, 2x momentary buttons, giant On/Off switch, OLED screen, 1000mAh battery (upgradable since there’s still room in there!) internal speaker (not shown).
Features: ESP32, arduino and (micro)Python compatible, and a few other unnamed features.
Future changes: another few holes for air circulation, and possibly more button,
Photos only show 5 sides, so I’ll leave it up to your imagination to how the 6th side looks like
(hint - what else do you need to make this box truly functional?)
What would you add to any of the sides to make it yours? Comment below.
What will you create next?
