Vu8s Case, as thin as a pencil

Post by hominoid »

The Vu8s case is a simple design meant to be a starting point for further Vu8s system development and integration. It is comprised of two pieces where the back panel sits flush with the back of the front bezel. The front LCD glass is also recessed into the front bezel which produces a thin .5mm thickness around the viewing area. The minimalist approach produces a thin encasement that is a mere 7mm in thickness.

      There are several parameters that can be adjusted using the Customizer GUI including adjusts to the viewable area of the screen.

          It can be used directly with the Odroid-M1S OEM case and mounting hardware.

                It's really very thin! Impressive :o
                What is the thickness of the back panel?

                BTW, I like the pencil made in U.S.A ;)
                I have used that pencil often since I was young.

                It's 1.5mm but both the front and back are recessed to get to that case thickness. Since there is good support at all four corners of the Vu8s, the case can get much of it's rigidity from the Vu8s and allow for lighter designs.

                I suspect there are many people who have worn erasers down and chewed on the end of that pencil over the years. I know I have. :)

                Okay. 1.5mm looks fine.

                It tasted very strange, but the funny thing is that I wasn't the only one who couldn't stop chewing it. ha ha ha 8-)

                Very nice design! It's great that it integrates with existing supports.
