I'm going to give this a try on the next prototype, it's really an excellent idea.

It IS pretty cool.  It's like the first step towards a CUBESat to be launched by NASA.

Yes, it makes sense to try this out Tekochip. Anything that helps reduce the huge barrier to prototyping a new product has got to be good. Just as those hurdles get higher, there are inventive folks looking for ways to create stepladders to get over the hurdles.

You're right, TJ. It does look like the NASA smartphone box. See link.

It is meant for carrying boards easier. But, I still had to carry it in a box recently. I have three.

One will be included in a future project of mine.

See my old project! http://www.element14.com/community/community/raspberrypi_projects/blog/2013/10/04/raspberry-pi-halloween-effects-door
