Eric S. Raymond, hacker icon, open source scholar, and lead developer of GPSD (an open source program used to communicate with GPS devices) is in need of a weatherproof enclosure capable of holding at least eight GPSs at a time, such that they can be readily used for software testing. He’s made a blog post asking for help from any Philadelphia-area makers who might be interested in helping out.
If you’ve got a spiffy new 3D printer, this might be a good use for it. If you’re interested, leave a comment on his blog.

An alternative under consideration is a homebrew active GPS repeater, so the only part that has to go outside would be the head-end GPS antenna.
Either path requires more hardware skills than I have, which is why I’m asking for help.
i have a vacuum former & tons of ABS….im sure we could mold some waterproof containers with it.
I live right up in Bucks county (right outside of philly)
