First you need a SDCard to store your operating system, then you need some connection to a display, if you use it for penetration testing like I do, you may want a WiFi and a Bluetooth dongle and finally you have to connect a keyboard and a mouse. So as there are only two USB ports you'll need an USB hub too. I don't want to carry all those parts flying around in my messenger bag, so I thought it'd be nice if I had a little box for all that parts. What's better than a classic ALTOIDS tin?
Step 1: Parts
- HDMI to DVI adapter
- SDCard(s), maybe you want different images
- WiFi dongle
- Bluetooth dongle
- USB hub and cable
Step 2: Getting all the part into the tiny box
As you can see you'll have two layers. The base layer contains everything besides the hub and the cable, which will be the second floor. Use a pencil to mark the positions of the parts.
Step 3: Filling the space
You can use a scissor, a really sharp knife and the lucky ones of you may have a laser cutter for this. You can do this much better, if you spend more time on it, but you see, even if you just spend a few minutes it's quite ok. I glued the foam rubber in the box, so it stays in place.
