Picture of Hard case for your Hipster PDA!
I have been a fan of GTD, and when I discovered the Hipster PDA (from 43folders), I found it to be a great solution for keeping my GTD information, the problem I had was that when you just had a clip for the papers, I couldn't keep them in my pocket without destroying the paper. So I did the Hard case for my Hipster PDA!

Step 1: What you need

What you need:

1. A Cassette Tape Case (This one was problematic to find in our CD orientated world)
2. A Dremel Tool
3. Protective eye wear

Great Idea! I love Instructables like this one. I wish I could come up with hard case for my Moleskine PDA. Took one look at your idea and hunted in my garage for an hour. Couldn't find anything that would fit. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Yeah. Don't use this. What I did is took a plastic folder that was thin but durable ($2?) and cut it to the size of my cards (3x5). Then I punctured it with a hole puncher and viola. I'm not a fan of the hPDA "clip" because it's messy and hard to scroll through. A keyring (or two) works much better.
i use a clip for construction/ ordering, but i use a ring or similar. the clip for construction makes sure you wont drop them and lose all of your hard work, and it helps to remind you to work on it if its in progress
What size index cards do you use? My 3x5 cards are too big ti fit in the cassette case. The case does work nicely as a desktop easel, though!

Hi I use index cards from Blanco they are 95x65 mm. Sadly the store I used to buy them in ran out so I started cutting my own and I make them a bit bigger, just to fill in the "top" of the case.
Wow, smart idea! This could not only be a case for a PDA, but you can use it as holders for many things-- even iPods! Great job. I wish I had a Dremel...
