Build responsibly. A new case from an old bottle.

Xbee module case

Xbee module case

My Xbee sensor project is picking up steam. The PIC part of API module is finished, the host part is close to completion. Since Python is new to me, the development is not as fast as I would like it to be, but I’m getting there. In the meantime, I started thinking about converting my coordinator setup, consisting of bare USB board with Xbee module, to something more permanent and professionally looking.

Picture on the right shows the materials. The idea is very simple: drill a 1/4″ hole in the cap, fasten Xbee to the cap using RP-SMA connector, cut another hole in the side of a bottle for the USB cable and screw things together. The whole project was completed in 15 minutes. The all-new Zigbee coordinator is waiting.
