I wanted to create this flexible enclosure prototype which should protect an Arduino board optimally.

The flexible nature of the material has been integrated into design intent from the beginning . Lateral notches have been designed to held some wires. The board itself doesn't need to be screwed into enclosure, there is a snap fit which allows the Arduino to be inserted into the box. The special attachment system can be screwed on a wall, for instance.

I used the downloadable file of an Arduino UNO at http://grabcad.com/library/arduino-uno-reference-design for the renderings.

mkislov and SaGa Design : Thank you for the kind comments ! @mkislov: Alternate top cap model to allow the use of "thicker" shields: This is a great idea, if I'm able to get a working prototype of this case, then I'll think about it seriously. Of course, the material price per ccm will determine the viability of this enclosure design...

Elegant, clean solution and a great idea. Good luck on the contest :)

Awesome! Would be cool if there were alternate top caps that allowed the use of the headers(for protoshield, etc...)
