A quiet post day today, some exciting gadgets I’m expecting remain in the postal system… but this little box turned up unexpectedly from Itead… it’s a waterproof box no doubt intended for their Sonoff products – and it would do a good job as their smaller units will fit into it no problem – handy for an outside light and you still get to see the flashing communication light.
However, it immediately occurred to me that it would be good for various other projects – ESP8266 etc. where you need the whole thing outdoors and maybe have a display on-board. Indeed I have such a thing in Spain where I have a little LCD backlit display monitoring the solar installation. It’s in a wooden box and I’m just hoping the weather out there won’t get to it (not much I can do if it does).
So anyway, not too exciting but I thought you’d like a look – no it won’t fit a Raspberry Pi unfortunately – JUST – and there’s no way to shave anything off those pillars – but it would take one of the smaller SBCs or an ESP8266 + small PSU no problem. Now, how practical it will be depends on postage from where you are.
