My project is finished (electronics + python) , it should look like a cross between a TV remote and a numeric keypad.
The problem is , that i cannot find an elegant housing or "box", to assemble it in, so that is does not look like a car wreck.
The biggest showstopper is the 3x4 matrix keypad (either telephone style of flexible model).
My requirements are:
- must house a pi zero w
- must have room for some small extra's (wires, 2 led lights)
- most importantly, should be transparent (at the very least the faceplate)
- elegant way to attach some type of 3x4 matrix to the faceplate.
Where do i find this type of product, or inversely, what assembly route should i take if a 4x3 matrix needs to be attached.
I find almost no examples where such a thing is integrated.
Especially the telephone style matrix has very rigid connectors that take up a huge amount of space, very awkward.
