The Maximite computer that I use needed a nice box so I spent some time with MakerCase.com and then additional time modifying the files in Inkscape to produce the box seen here.
The box houses the Colormax Maximite board which has Arduino headers so I included an access to those for easy shield plug-in capability. The back has all the connectors for Keyboard, VGA monitor, USB, Power and Expansion header. The front has a slot for the SD card.
I'm still deciding what to do with this. I may even kickstarter.com the idea to see how interested people are before I invest a lot of money in tooling up the boxes. For now I'll just keep using my PIC32 Maximite based computer.

Chuck has been programming with PIC Microcontrollers since there were only five devices. Now there are over 700 and growing. He also has a lot of fun 3D printing designs using his Davinci 3D printer and TinkerCad software. In this series of blog posts and occasional videos on his YouTube Channel he tries to help you get started with electronics and 3D printing.
