TechUnboxed: Adafruit Lady Ada’s Bento Box [Review].

Lady Ada’s Bento Box is billed as being “crush-proof” and “water-proof.” I don’t have access to a 100+ meter deep pool of water, but I was able to park a 7000 pound pickup truck on it. The Otterbox held up well. No crushed Arduino, not even a crack in the case. The bottom of the Otterbox got a few deep scratches from the cement, but it otherwise handled getting run over with quiet confidence.

Adafruit’s Lady Ada’s Bento Box is a clever way to take your microcontroller, breadboard, a bunch of components, and some jumper wires with you on the go. You can drop the whole thing in your bag without having to worry about your circuit getting squashed by a truck or loose components getting misplaced. The simple design of the laser cut insert makes the whole thing possible by keeping things in their place. If you’re looking for portable microcontroller and breadboard case, Lady Ada’s Bento Box is hard to beat.

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.
