Default NEW Antec Case, Worth getting? (its not for sale yet)

Antec.com - Skeleton

"Worlds first open air case"

It looks sweet, and I am sure dust will not be that big of a problem.

What do you guys think about it? worth getting it? yes or no?

Weakness: soda spills, moisture, direct sun explosure, may damage it.

PLEASE VOTE.

Wow, I actually believed for once it looked sweet.

The thing I DON't like is that its probably going to be horribly expensive just because its the first one in the world.

And also, it would be hard finding a place to put that thing, somewhere nice.

Well, I do believe this case is for gaming.....

And as for dust, it can't be worst than a computer with lots of fans on it, like the antec 900......

Did I mentioned it works as AC? (great for winter)

It looks like an espresso machine or something. I feel like it would belong in a coffee shop. It will probably be pretty expensive too.

That thing wouldn't last a week on, or anywhere near, my desk. My cases need to be built like tanks.
