Just realized I never shared this with the community. This is what my OUYA has looked like for the past few months.

I 3D printed the case using the "official" design on Thingiverse. Slightly modified the .3dm file to have a cutout space on the front face for a couple of extra LEDs to shine through. This is the result. The lid is open, there normally isn't light shining through the top front corners. And the case needs some post-processing cleanup, but whatever.

I wired the extra LEDs (3 of them) directly to the pins on the board for the DC power connector, and added a switch to control them. The extra LEDs can be controlled entirely independently from the OUYA itself. So I can have the lights on when the OUYA is off or off when the OUYA is on. I also swapped the white power LED with a green one to match.

Also painted 2 of my controllers.

I wouldn't attach extra LEDs to the existing one. I wired mine to the pins for the DC power connector. I can may post pictures later tonight.

Haha. Yeah, it definitely needs to be cleaned up. It's the back though and doesn't get seen often. It also doesn't look as bad as that picture.

Sounds messy.
