War-walking case


I’ve just complete work on a project I’ve had in mind for a while now, a warwalking case. As you can probably guess it involves fitting a war-drive rig (car excluded) inside a carryable case.

As I had one going spare I started off with a fairly standard CD carry case:

Bit of fun with a hacksaw and foam later and theres an alcove for my external Alfa wireless card:

The grooves cut into the central partition create secure compartment for my Acer AA1, both in transit and whilst running, (not sure about cooling ventilation yet, still a work in progress):

Finally, a groove in the edge of the case allows for external access for the omni antenna and GPS reciever. Complete kit below:

Now it’s complete I’m not sure whether this kit will actually get used though. It looks a bit suspicious and is now commonly referred to as ‘the bomb’. Not sure I’m looking forward to explaining to an armed response unit that I’ve got nothing more dangerous in the case than an up to date Metasploit install.

    Kinda reminds me of one of those mega old mobile phone in a case jobs 🙂

    Next time you go war driving can I tag along? Ive never been and would love to see how it works in practice.

      Shouldn’t be a problem mate, I’ll give you a shout before my next stats gathering trip, likely not be a couple of weeks as I’ve got a few things on the go. Currently working on a less suspiciuos war-walk rig, might even be able to use this one in public without getting arrested so watch this space 🙂
