This is an enclosure prototype I made for my Physical Computing final. Since I made this it's undergone further iterations using different materials and a simplified form.
It holds an iphone and an arduino uno and has an opening for battery connection access.
I chose Legos because they are familiar, yet I haven't played with them in a long time. They're also a good way to make precise things for someone without a technical materials or engineering background.
I selected one of the Creator kits because it came with several nice joints and specialized pieces while also having a nice range of basic blocks. I started by re-familiarizing myself with the types of pieces and how they fit together. It occurred to me what a great stress free aspect legos could be if I chose to incorporate it into my process for physical projects at ITP and beyond. I'm really satisfied this was presented as an option in the assignment syllabus.
