Yes, that was my idea with extending the rear. We should of course
not add any major protrusions, as they would complicate the handling
of the device (e.g., it could get caught when sliding it into a
pocket) and may break off.

Instead of "feet", also a bar across the whole width of the device
or two shorter bars would work, and would be a bit less susceptible
to breaking.

Ah, but that would make the whole device bigger. Also, you'd have to
increase the size of the top shell to match.

It's only 10.8 g.
