This is great news, Elias!

If I could help in some way - just tell me ;) I’m happy to be beta-tester - I have: RPi, RPi 2, RPi 3 and Zero ;)

About case etc. I think that could be second stage of the project. First is to develop Einstein on RPi (RPi Zero would be perfect!!!). Custom 3d printed case + touch screen is great idea ;)

Best regards,
Pawel Piotrowski
