Repurposed Plastic Protects PCBs
Deep in the Hackaday tip line, someone tipped us off to a YouTube video where someone used a heat gun to soften the lid of a plastic food container over the top of an Arduino. The covering protects it from accidental shorts and if done well, could dress up a project by hiding the PCB. It was such a simple hack that I tried it myself and included a couple pictures of my result in the article. My twist was adding a dab of hot glue instead of setting up a metal jig like the creator.
