In Win WINBOT is a Spherical E-ATX Case with Biometric Chops

The star attraction at In Win booth was a spherical, globe-shaped chassis called WINBOT, which is a lot larger than it looks in these pictures. Made of aluminium and molded acrylic, the case is characterized by a clear, transparent sphere, which surrounds the motherboard tray, and mounts for the PSU bay, drive bay, and a liquid-cooling setup. The case opens up like a Pokeball. Its most striking feature, however, is an in-built biometric security system, complete with facial recognition, voice recognition system, and a voice command interface. The facial recognition uses multiple cameras to map the 3D contours of a face, and can tell a real face from a picture of one. When not authenticating yourself using the Windows Hello-ready face-recognition, you can also use the cameras to take some groovy 3D selfies. Taking this thing to your next vacation, however, could be a bit of a problem.

Getting down to the brass tacks of the WINBOT as a case, there's little to wish for - you get room for an E-ATX motherboard, graphics cards up to 33 cm in length, CPU coolers 17 cm in height, multiple 2.5-inch drive mounts, and a cooling system which includes three "front" (if you can call it that) 120 mm intakes, and two 120 mm rear exhausts, with multiple radiator mounts. The front-panel connectivity includes a USB 3.1 type-C port, three USB 3.0/3.1 type-A, and HDA jacks. The case measures 700 mm x 685 mm x 648 mm (yeah, it's huge).

Big balls lead to bigger E-peen.

Now this looks like 1 million x times better than any Apple trashcan or simmilar. I wonder how much for the price, and if you need a custom Liquid loop for it.

Much too little ! I did not see the front inputs and all connections are extremely inaccessible. Regardless I liked design. Radiators would have connected to the outside preferably outside the room . PC casing with plagon radiators would be more appropriate innovation and market niche. In the summer outside the room in winter inside the room. You do not need an additional room heating in winter.
