Aluminium Case Ready for Preorders

aluminium

I mentioned last week or so that someone in the comunity showed interest in making an Aluminium case for the Open Pandora following the release of the case design files in June. Well now the project is getting closer to reality as preorders are now being accepted.

If you are interested in such a case you can pre-order your case at DragonBox’s shop. 100 preorders will be required before these cases can expect to be shipped, and so far only about 20 orders have been placed since the offer started on July 18th. Now it kind of seems like a bit of a stretch to reach a hundred units… but we wil see. ED has started providing a render of the case in Pearl Mouse Grey. This is what it could look like when completed (note that actual appearance may vary):

We have also learnt during the past few days that the hinge will be redesigned in the new case and that the case will need screws to hold the battery together.

EDIT (29 July 2014): a new render has surfaced for the black colored case as well:

It’s a pretty cool project and I sincerely hope it will reach the required participants to make it happen.

If this aluminum case turns out to be as good as IDV says, then the Pandora will be most rugged device out there in terms of physical strength. This is good news because Pandora can now be used in the fields where conditions are tough. I wish Pyra will get an aluminum case as well (and waterproof 😉 )
