While I don't have the know-how to attempt this project, I thought I might pass along this idea, especially for Star Wars fans - maybe someone might want to tackle it. Similar to the Puzzle Box project, I think a Jedi Holocron would make an excellent custom Ouya case. For those that don't know, in Star Wars, Holocrons are interactive repositories of knowledge (usually ancient) that have been featured in the Expanded Universe books, comics, games and most recently The Clone Wars TV series. There are many different versions and configurations, but generally the Jedi ones are cube-shaped, and around the size of an Ouya or larger.

This guy sells Jedi Holocron kits (as well as Sith), which include alternate parts:

Here you can see someone made similar one into a custom hard drive:

Excellent idea! I can't believe I missed it, haha. Looks like it would be pretty straight forward to mod one. Hmm, time to shop! :D
