This case has been out for ages. Like, at least a year. :P

Dunno why that website is just now writing an article...

EDIT: By the way, I'm moving this to the "Other HW Topics" section, since it's not really a new product.

On another note, it's an interesting idea, but I wouldn't call it useful. It's more a showy thing.

Considering the amount of dust my new appartment has, I rather i did not get one of these.

It looks like it could run the PC cooler than normal cases. But it would be bad for high dust/hair spaces.

ya, if you got a cat/dog/hairy chick, this case would be bad during shedding season.


i was looking at the full sized skeleton a few months back, but the guys here talked me out of it.

If I was going open air case give me the Danger Den Torture Rack.
Much easier to access components for benching and the like.

I considered getting a test chassis for my bench once but then thought how often do i honestly remove parts from a system enough to justify it? I work inside a normal PC case enough it doesn't bother me at all and my test bed machine has no side panels on so if i need to swap something out I just power it off and bob's your effeminate relative.

In short this is nothing but a unsuccessful gimmick.
