The projBox is an open hardware project enclosure for prototyping with a standard electronics protoboard and an Arduino. This project was created originally as a supplementary toolkit for the course Processing and Arduino in Tandem.

Project site: projbox.org

It is designed for projects that use an Arduino as a physical interface for software running on a separate computer.

The lid is removable and has holes for attaching components like switches and knobs. Ports in the end of the box allow access to both the USB and power jack of the Arduino.

The entire box can be constructed from laser-cut 1/8″ thick baltic birch plywood, which is a sturdy but easily tool-able material for drilling additional holes or adding other modifications. The schematics for creating/modifying a projBox enclosure are freely available on the templates page in a variety of vector formats.
