sk7ca made up a great portable electronics lab (with /A LOT/ of arduino-stuff) in an old laptop case and a small road case. I am so thrilled about this, that I asked him if I could feature his build on my blog and here it is:
He found some really good use for these old computers that no-one seems to throw away but isn’t using it either. Note the VME-bus connectors used to interface the BB to the plugs – really nice.
In this case is all you would need to have some fun on the road – a ton of chips, a small MM and a bunch of wires!
Didn’t I promise a load of Arduino add-ons? Just a lot of bits of hardware that make prototyping fast and clean – just like you would want it on a portable lab.
More pics right here.
For me this is a definite /want/ – this old laptop on my shelf seems like it could use some modding …..:)
