Raspberry Pi Lasercase

While I, like many of you, am awaiting for the delivery of my raspberry Pi B I thought it would be nice to share something with you and get your opinion.

I am a Dutch designer and working for about a year on a project called Leech, in which I try to give another function to existing objects with the addition of a small computer.
A few of these outcomes are from an artist point of view and a few from the mind of the designer in me. This one clearly fits the latter category.
The idea is simple; I have a few monitors and a beamer and I would love to be able to take a computer in my pocket and stick it to the image-provider nearest by.
The form I had in mind was simple; open for some air circulation and because I had to set some boundaries for myself I loved if it could be laser cut so it could be made open source in FabLabs worldwide or for easy manufacturing for myself.
With the addition of suction cups you could stick it to any smooth surface, be it the back of a monitor or a beamer.

Will measure the Pi before I make a first version so I know there is some tweaking to do, this is a first digital prototype.
Hope to find some rubbers for mounting the Pi board in a sort of shock-mount setup.

Please let me know if you would be interested in an affordable housing.

Thanks, Daan
