No one will ever design a better more efficient case than this. http://img.tapatalk.com/d/13/07/03/je7ybujy.jpg It will blend perfectly with the rest of anyone's home theatre seamlessly.http://img.tapatalk.com/d/13/07/03/ybyzu7us.jpg All ports are easily accessible.http://img.tapatalk.com/d/13/07/03/gyjezata.jpg Order yours now, before my toddler notices his Duplos are vanishing.

Next on the list is to build a more ergonomic controller from Play-Do.

I swear, I was just thinking about building a custom case from some old Legos...
It would get some geek points, it's easy to build, and means I don't have to turn the thing on it's side to reduce BT lag (all plastic means no aluminum blocking the signal!)

I may do a legit Lego case in the future. I'm thinking that I would mount the board to a Lego skeleton frame glued together, and then be able to build different designs according to my mood.

I tried to build a full Lego case. I had a fan in the bottom and everything. Problem was, by the time I got done it was humongous! I tried to slim it down by having some mini-figs hold the PCB at an angle but then I had a hard time getting the ports to line up with the hole/slot I had made. I finally gave up and just stuck with making a Lego base for the Ouya that holds a USB powered fan.

Brilliant! And when one tires of any particular color scheme, all one need do is rebuild it. Now I want to make a "Lego case" shaped like the Death Star and have a Darth Vader figure standing on top.

Its probably not good for the convection cooling that this system uses, its also probably not a good ideal to cover the aluminum case, as that to acts as cooling.

This system uses 3 ways of cooling. Convection (the top and bottom of the case are open to allow it to work), active ( fan on the SoC), and passive (aluminum case acts sort of like a heatsync).

Seems like a bad idea, my kids would grab it and throw it on the floor, haha.

Cool! I'll be able to customize my own cases soon when I get my 3D printer :peach:

You're right, I'll have to build it bigger. I have a spare window fan that has a built in thermostat. I'll incorporate it in to the final design.

There looks to be no ventilation though. Cool idea as I could create a spaceship and then a T-rex if I wanted too, lol.

That's pretty cool ! I have been thinking of finding a suitable Green Droid to transplant mine into :eagerness:

I was going to take mine out of it's case and then build one with tons of those 1x4 thin pieces so it's sturdy (Those things are difficult to pull apart when somethings made out of nothing but those.) Then a bunch of 1x1's/2's that are transparent in various places so it glows through and make a few slots that are empty for vents and then I would just put some stuff on the corners to make a pocket of air under it and I don't think i'll put anything on the bottom so it's all open. maybe like screen door material to stop dust. I figure it'd be small as can be, glow how I want, and vent fairly well. I just haven't started on it yet, my lego bin isn't readily available right now.
