Enclosure for a super accurate Arduino GPS clock. Basic description and sketch here:
I expanded this with a charger, Lipo, on/off switch and a touch toggle switch.
Added the Lipo to be able to carry this around as GPS signal inside the house may be difficult to find at any given time. The display seems to draw a fair amount of current so the lipo lasts about 36 to 48 hours on a full charge. Had an antenna cable around, but this seems not to be necessary.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
