MachineCollective Enclosure

MachineCollective enclosure (beta)

Xndr from Machine Collective is supplying a very nice enclosure for the project. (80 EUR). This projects also acts as a kind of beta test for his sparkfun monome enclosure parts.

An ingenious, almost seamless aluminium side panel with nicely rounded corners.

Here's the inner base panel. Notice that the shield does not sit on the arduino anymore (to keep the height of the unit to a minimum). Instead the two are connected with wires soldered to header pins. The shield is clamped in place by a few cleverly cut pieces of plastic tightened down with screws.

Also, It turns out that I needn't have removed the 'break off' part of the shield. Now I have the problem of how to secure this loose piece to the base of the enclosure.

Is there a way to get in touch with unsped. I am interested in using his monome shield.

I don't know. I haven't been in contact with unsped. I believe that the guys from the bricktable blog were in touch with him.

Alright, I'll get in touch with them, thanks for the info. Project is looking great. I plan to start mine soon!

Have you looked into adding an accelerometer to your Arduinome?

"Have you looked into adding an accelerometer to your Arduinome?"

No. Partly because this one will be a bit too big to operate while holding it (at least for how I imagine using it).

I see you don't connect all pins between the shield and the arduino, do you have a diagram showing which are required?

Thanks.

@tomw: see the schematic http://basementleds.blogspot.com/2008/07/schematic-for-bricktable-code.html
