    I'm sure you guys have seen this

    On mini-ITX.com there is a new case for the EPIA's that look really enticing. Almost looks like the exact height, width, and depth for a single din dash install. It's made by casetronic's, although their website just says coming soon. So now combine this with a screen that would roll up like a garage door (assuming you have a double din area like I do with a 92 maxima) and this could be the ultimate setup. What's your guys thoughts?

    Pity they're so deep at 254mm. Not all DIN slots would be able to house such a long case.

    All we have to do now is wait 2 years for them to hit the UK, or an American supplier to offer them to overseas customers at a same price, and then find a Car Powersupply for them.

    What do you reckon, one of them 134 cases.
    A Gamecube 5.6" screen
    with Ira or IRman, and touch screen (with hidden keyboard)
    Slot load DVD, and a fold down button/char LCD panel to look more like a Headunit?
    And all the gadgets on USB ports hidden away.

    ISTR you planning something similar many moons ago, around the time the first Epia/Eden boards were being announced.

    I even had it built then my mother stepped on the case

    It would be great if you could take this new case and use some sort of rails so you have a removeable computer. That was part of my project.. I didn't get that far, but what I had planned on doing was using IC seats, or IDC sockets to make it a quick in and out process. I never got that far, it would have been a bit daunting a project anyway.
