In Win Reveals Case Made of Glass: Tòu

In Win has announced a new, rather interesting chassis. Not only does this chassis house your components and hide them from sight, it also shows them. Odd, yes, but definitely intriguing. The case, known as Tòu, features semi-transparent glass plates which are specially treated to let light through when the system is on, yet return to being opaque when the system is shut down. In its opaque state it has a mirror finish. The image above shows the rear half as if the system were engaged, and the front half as if the system were resting.

Beyond this, the case is fairly unremarkable. It features room for up to ATX size motherboards, an optical drive, two 2.5" drives, three 3.5" drives, and graphics cards up to 380 mm long. It also has three top 120 mm fans as well as a single front 120 mm fan.

Front I/O connectivity is handled by a fairly standard pair of USB ports, as well as two HD audio ports.

So far, there is no information on when the case will be available, nor do we know what it will cost. Older reports indicate prices of up to $800, also mentioning 'limited availability.'
