I'm sure you've seen the write up from Mudlark and the blog post from BBC R&D; about their new Perceptive Radio that localises content and adjusts playback characteristics depending on listener interaction. I was approached by MCQN Ltd as the electronics part of the radio was nearing completion and asked if I could help with creating an enclosure that would portray the project well as a radio-type device.

While I am expecting to get the clearance to open-source the case design the same way that the electronics and code has been, in the meantime I can show you some of detail that went into the case build and some of the laser cut parts that place the components.
