[beagleboard] Enclosure for BeagleBone Black -- feedback requested

you couldn't post this on a website to avoid everyone having to
download a 2M mail post?

Very nice. I am looking for a metal enclosure.
Any hint about a price?

2M…it’s really nothing…

Well the for the mail, nice design. Did u think about the led status? Can we see the leds with your design?


the leds will eventually burn a hole in the lid, so long-term that's
not a problem.

Kidding, it would be nice to be able to see the leds.

Now, I dimmed down the LEDs on the next revision. So future burning of holes by the LED cannot be guaranteed.


How about an aluminum version for the ultralights.

Really nice :slight_smile:

It would be nice to have a taller version also so it could accommodate the average cape :slight_smile:

It’s a bit early to tell because we’re still prototyping and it depends on how many units we’re going to be producing. But we’re aiming for sub $15.


We can make some small holes on the side of the case to show the leds, but I’m not sure you’ll be able to really see them well… The alternative is to put in light pipes but that would drive up the price of the case.
