In the eTeknix office this week we have something a little different, ok a lot different! We have the super rare, expensive and exclusive In Win Tou PC chassis and we feel very lucky indeed.
The In Win Tou is part of the premium range that In Win have been building, this means it sits alongside unique products such as the H-Frame and the D-Frame, both of which are pretty insane in their own right, but it looks like In Win are pushing the boundaries of what we think of as a PC chassis even further than before.
"tòu in Chinese means transparent. The design concept comes from glass building, we use 3mm tempered glass together with aluminium structure. With special glass coating if you switch on the LED you can see the components inside. When the internal lights are off, the chassis is pretty much just a mirror." - In Win
The Tou, which I'm told is pronounced "toe or tow", is made from glass and lots of it! Set upon an aluminium frame and at first glance it resembles more of a display case than a pc case. The concept behind the Tou is based around modern architecture, much like we see on fancy glass faced office blocks and as you can see from their concept design are work there are some unique inspirations that you don't really see in PC chassis designs... until now at least.
