Temp enclosure ready to go

A couple weeks ago I gave a presentation in which a venture capitalist, after hearing the presentation, asked to buy a unit. I still don’t have tooling done for the enclosure, so I had to design a new enclosure that could be laser printed. The temp enclosure fits around the test board perfectly, and is held together with super glue, which is a really good adhesive for acrylic. This temporary enclosure is slick, easy to cut and assemble, and works well. I’m less happy with the buttons, but I couldn’t find any better ones at the electronics market that would fit. This unit is now ready to go and I can continue working on the design of the real enclosure.

The construction of this unit was only a minor distraction, though, as it forced me to get a lot of work done on the firmware, get some more components of the hardware working better, and this temporary enclosure is a good backup design in case I need to produce units quickly between now and when I have the prettier version tooled and ready to go.

In construction. The paper is still on the acrylic.

The scoreboard assembled. Note that the arrows have been replaced with points, there's now a center dot for time, and the brightness of this display makes it hard to take good photos.
