**Please note: I've updated the model so that the compact is completely open when it prints. This drops the price but resets the print success rate, though this is essentially the same model.**
This was a finalist in Instructables Gadget Hacking and Accessories Contest. The instructable can be found here
The design came about from a desire to create a gadget accessory that might be geared towards women (though the design is basically unisex), rather than the way most gadget related designs seem to be designed by and for men. I was also looking for something that met my personal needs-- a way to store my earbuds safely and easily in a bag or purse. The result was the Earbuds Compact.
It's about the size of a compact so it doesn't take up much room, and it's super lightweight, and durable. There's a small clasp to snap it shut so it doesn't open. Now I never have to worry about destroying another pair of headphones when I toss them in my bag.
Please note: This has been tested with Apple's iPhone earbuds (it may or may not work with another brand or style).
