Altoids SD card case \"mod\" - 11/01/05 11:57 AM

I know this isn't really a mod, but I had one these altoids breath strip containers some SD cards without cases. This also got me thinking about other altoids modding opportunities. People have already done a lot of MP3 player altoids mods but at a bookstore several years ago I saw a very large altoids tin. It would have been possible to do a PDA/laptop mod with it. http://photos1.blogger.com/blogger/2804/1207/1600/Library%20-%20006.jpg

Just to give you an idea, I use an old eyeglass case. We photograph weddings so this makes it very easy for me.
The CF cards are 512 and 1Gig while the SD cards are all 2Gig

Nothing special, just some black mattboard glued together
The compartment is held inplace with Black Duct Tape
When you open up the case the compartment kind of springs out.

Thats eyeglass quite useful. After seeing the iPod Shuffle RAID I thought about making a miniature xserve RAID with sd cards and the internals of SD card readers. Some of the readers are only as large as a thumbdrive.
