The box from hellraiser. Just got this idea and I'll probably never actualize it myself but I think it could be pretty cool and it'll be possible thanks to the makerbot partnership.

So, you're suggesting to make the Ouya case look like a Lemarchand's box?

That would be pretty neat. At least if it could be made to look something like this:

Remember how they released the 3d printable case specs? Well I found the specs for a 3d printable LaMarchand's box (link below). If you could combine the two, you win :)

So tempted by the MakerBot 2... Can I explain away the cost?!

I am currently working with someone to make some designs and will be offering custom cases. I just need to finalize estimated costs and time then can provide some idea and quotes to make cases. At this time i am thinking of doing a kickstarter campaign to help fund the up front costs of material.

I would totally be interested... along with matching controller covers.

This is awesome! I've spent the past 3 days mulling over this idea. I've considered decals, acid etching with a pattern or even finding a way to rig a plastic replica. I will be watching this thread for progress and if I end up throwing in the towel, I'll hope you don't. Best of luck and I can't wait to see what you come up with :-)

Do we think we'd be able to utilize this box as a case?

MYSTERY BOX (http://www.amazon.com/Unknown-Hellraiser-Mystery-Box/dp/B000VJ2T54/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1372258100&sr=8-1&keywords=lemarchand%27s+box)

I have yet to try dismantling my ouya to see what's inside, but I think this might work.

This is an old thread, I didn't even know others had answered, must've forgotten to subscribe. Has anyone made any progress on their ideas? When I saw the picture on the one sold on Amazon I realized that this really really should be done. I just don't have skills for something like that.
