i got my ouya yesterday and started playing around with some emulators...decided to test out some retro usb controllers i made earlier in the year, most of them worked right away... some button remapping was needed in games but i was able to select and control the menus...i needed a usb hub to use multiple controllers and a flash drive for more rom storage but it looked a little messy so i tried to make a all in one ouya and 4 port usb hub... i just used some nuts and bolts and some plexiglass

around half the height and a tad wider then the original case

usb hub is screwed to the bottom plexi and the ouya is attached to the top and "floats" above the usb hub...(top plexi is warped due to bad hole allignment)

this was just a quick thrown together case that only took about 45 mins to make...im hoping to make one thats a little better/cleaner in the future

That's way cool, id like to see the back of it, and maybe later a more complete casing I love the idea for the hub tho, I was actually just thinking the same thing earlier today.

I kinda came up with mounting the original case on top of something like this, so it would sit right on top of it.

nice, so you just use a usb to usb cable to connect it?

also how is the weight on it? is it stable, I noticed you didn't mount the artificial weight.

Ya its a really short one I had lying around...just barely can plug into the ouya and hub...and its a little wider and shorter so its more stable

UPDATE Version 2.0

i didnt like my flash drive hanging out the side so i made the case a little longer, matched the holes up better and put the fan below the plexi and drilled a hole for the fan
