I wanted to comment on a couple of things I don't like from all the cases I've seen so far:
- Very light and small. It's the same issue with Raspberry Pi, NES Classic and similar devices, the thing is very small, very light, it weights less than the cables attached to it, it feels more like a dongle than a device with its own entity and importance. Analogue does a good job here by adding a metal plate to their products giving them some weight, a device with the capabilities of the Mister can take up a bit more of space and weight and nobody would feel that it doesn't deserve it.
- Function over form. This is an advantage for many, but I think there is something to say about a nice design, like the last Atari console
I've seen some designs, that probably many of you know, but I will put below, that could make the Mister a beautiful piece of retro gaming technology, (maybe somebody can be inspired by it?):
I would pay good money for a case that looked like that, even if most of the stuff it's just decorative (like a fake floppy drive).
An advantage on a bigger case is also the option to reroute some ports internally, room for future layers, and maybe a big 8-12cm fan to cool the case with very low RPM and noise.
Sorry to hijack this thread with my suggestions, but this is so far the most "official" Mister case thread I've found. Also I'm useless designing so I secretly hope somebody will do it for me.
