After a few trials i managed to create a nice box for the device. Something i really hate and kind of frustrates me is having some breadboard with jumper wires, then some usb cable for connection to the pc and everything tangling up on my desk.

This small box prints for about 15 min on my Felix 3.0 Printer, has a built in button plane, hole for the micro usb port.

And another hole on the opposite side for the pin header for additional connections. Maybe this will change as it turns out 90 degree female headers are quite hard to find and expensive, so another option is to make the hole on the top/ Which would make the box ~ cm smaller

I also tried creating a video, but it is hard with the low dynamic range of my camera

I even soldered a small batch, to use on my next training event coming up in a couple of weeks. Now i need to print some boxes and design some nice stickers for the top
