Thanks JohnSymonds this is clutch feedback.
And yes, we learned the hard way that enclosures are super important in this market.
For OAK-D-IoT (which I dumbly named OAK-D-WiFi initially) we recently finished prototyping it and opened tooling for the enclosure design we did based on that feedback. It will be ready likely December-ish and then folks will be able to buy the enclosure for their units:
We did WiFi testing and it seems to be the same with and without enclosure, which was the main reason we didn't do this the first time. (It did take several iterations to make that performance OK; so the concern was valid.)
In regards to a CM4 version with enclosure, yes, agreed. We're working to make such a version. See bellow for the prototype:

Thoughts on this?
We're thinking of doing follow-on of this with M12 connector instead and active illumination (laser and LED) like OAK-D-Pro, here.
