We whipped up this quick tutorial for assembling your very own bento prototyping box! Grab Lady Ada’s Bento Box in the shop and follow the simple steps for a super secure way to tote your circuits.
Lady Ada’s Bento Box – Portable Pack & Hack Box [Breadboard + Tin]. Portage for your Projects! Lady Ada’s Bento Box is a crush-proof, drop-proof & water-proof prototyping kit that combines the ultra-rugged Otterbox 3000 with a storage tin and half-size (400-point) breadboard. In the middle is a spot for attaching an Arduino UNO (or any other PCB that has the same shape and mounting holes). There’s plenty of clearance for wires (even ones with plastic bits on the end such as our premium jumper wires or wire bundles) and parts on the breadboard, and the box is so sturdy you never have to worry about any delicate parts inside getting damaged. Toss it in your backpack, suitcase, duffel bag and you can be sure to work on it when you get to school, work or home.
Each pack contains:
- Otterbox 3000
- Half size (400-point) breadboard
- Altoids-sized mint tin
- Laser cut acrylic plate
- Mounting hardware for attaching an Arduino to the plate and sticky foam to attach the tin to the Otterbox
Please note that some of the photos above show the box with an Arduino and/or wires, components, USB cable, displays, etc. These are not included!
- Approx 0.85″ clearance for components above the breadboard
