Picture of Raspberry Pi accessories tin
After waiting several months, my Raspberry Pi finally arrived. As it comes quite naked, you need some accessories to use it.
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?

First I grabbed all the stuff I wanted to have in the tin:

- HDMI to DVI adapter
- SDCard(s), maybe you want different images
- WiFi dongle
- Bluetooth dongle
- USB hub and cable
 
do you have links for this rubber material?

Sorry, no. I grabbed it from my junk pile. I think I ripped it from an old and broken tool box. You can use any foam or rubber that's sturdy enough to cut.

I made something similar using the foam from an old yoga mat.

Nice job! I'll make one too. Since you're using the Altoids tin for accessories, why not use another one for the Pi itself -- please see my instructable for that. http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Make-a-Raspberry-Pi-Case-From-an-Altoids-Ti/
