The Many Faces of SAFE

October 20, 2011

The SAFE (Solarbotics Arduino Freeduino Enclosure) is a marvelous contraption of laser-cut acrylic that makes a complete enclosure for your Arduino project. It gives you a protective shell with enough room for a basic shield, with knock-outs for power and USB connection. It even has a power switch.

The big problem with Arduinos and Freeduinos, however, is that there are different versions. You could even go so far as to say that there are many versions of them.  And on top of the standard design/layout, there are boards like the Netduino/+, W&L Video Game Shield, Gameduino... And then there are other non Arduino devices, like the EZ-B and the PICAxe AXE401.

Solarbotics Arduino Freeduino EnclosureSo make sure that the SAFE is compatible with your DIY poison of choice, we're releasing a fistful of special face plates so that you can accommodate your favourite board. All our SAFEs and faceplates are available in Black, Clear, Dark Red and Transparent Bloooo (it's so cool, you have to say it that way). Here's our entire list of plates:

So go forth, friends, and apply your favourite face to the SAFE. But not your actual face. That'd be pretty awkward. And creepy. On second thought, that'd make a wicked Halloween costume. Go, do it. Just send us some pictures.

OpenBeam & Nightmares in China Sour...

We've been a big fan of Openbeam for a long time, and when Terence Tam started producing 3D printers using this material, we were hopeful that this would be a great fit for his operation. Nice material, great engineering - what could go wrong? LOTS. Follow his spiral down the Asian rabbit-hole when his selected […]
