Make the Enclosure




I just grabbed a cardboard and made an enclosure out of it.

For the electronic part, I integrated an Arduino module which allowed you to change the brightness of two LEDs on the front panel with a potentiometer.

I carved a small hole at the bottom of the cardboard to let the USB cable through.

    Nice work, but I think you should take it further. Where is the pot mounted? You should consider a more robust way of mounting the LEDs. Just sticking them through paper will not stand up over time.

    Does the paper just rest on top of the cardboard? Can it be removed, replaced, modified?
