[WANTED] Plastic casings source
« on: February 01, 2012, 04:07:47 pm »
Hi guys.
I'm prototyping a design and I'd really need a decent casing.
Something like an mp3 reader, or another pocketable electronic device.
I can't design my own right now, I'd like to get some already made and adapt the electronics for this phase.

Any contact you can share?
I tried directly mailing some china factory but they didn't answer (what a surprise there...).

I'm essentially trying to replicate what Seeedstudio did with its DSO Nano V1: they took the plastic casing of an MP3 (or something like that) and stuffed their circuit in it...
But they're Chinese so it's unfair ;)

Thanks mate, I was looking for some more sophisticated designs...
I need battery compartment, and besides these are a bit on the fatty side (at least 22mm height, a bit too much).
But anyway thank you for sharing.

Perhaps Seeed could be convinced to stock the casing separately...

Alternatively you could buy the case on eBay (bit pricey though): http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=120800238315

Another option is to look for replacement casings for existing MP3 players, iPod's say (though I've been looking for the iPod Nano case without luck so far...)

Oh the Quad is not the design I was looking for, more like this http://www.techindustriya.com/backspace/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/IMG_7009.jpg , a pocket hotspot from Huawei.
Anyway I tried contacting Seeed both via tech support and on the forums, no reply as of now.

P.s. why the post to which I responded before was canceled?
