A lot going on right now, but I was able to crank out an initial concept for the enclosure along with some cool renderings. I'm not the best ID person, so the enclosure is a little boxy, but I kind of like it. I added some cool groove texturing to the top half and some very mild chamfers and rendered a pretty cool bead-blasted transparent blue plastic, which I actually like a lot, reminds me of the transparent purple gameboy color. Hopefully I'll be able to find some resin that matches and potentially I'll be able to sand it down to get that matte-finish once I start prototyping.

I still have a lot of work to do, and barely have touched the firmware. Hoping to get to that once I have a rough print of the enclosure done
