Arduino UNO R3 lego case
In the following photo you can see the result of the case I built for this project.
- Lego pieces
- Arduino UNO R3
- Ethernet Shield for Arduino UNO
- Keypad Shield for Arduino UNO
In the figure below you’ll see the components needed:
In the next photo you can see the ethernet shield attached to arduino UNO R3.
In the next photo you can see the pins used to avoid both shields using pin 10.
In the next photo you can see the full stack.
Building the base
In the next photos you can see the floor of the lego case. In the next photos you can see how the sides of the lego case are built.
Inserting arduino UNO
In the next photos you can see how the arduino UNO with Ethernet Shield is inserted.
Fixing arduino UNO to lego case
In this step we’ll fix the arduino UNO to the case so it doesn’t move inside it.
Finally, in this photo you can see the case from above without the Keypad Shield. You can see the pieces I used to fix the arduino.
In this step we’ll add some decorations and supports for the case for an easier human - arduino interaction :)
And this is how it looks like:
In the next photo you can see the side, where I left space for the ports I needed (Ethernet & USB).
From this case you can remove Ethernet Shield if you don’t need an internet connection. Here’s the result:
