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.

Lian Li Announces the PC-T70 Open-Bench Chassis

Lian-Li Industrial Co. Ltd is eager to announce the PC-T70 test bench. After productive collaboration, taking feedback from high-end PC hardware reviewers, Lian Li sought to create a test bench that could both provide unhindered access for enthusiasts who want to rapidly swap hardware, and those who like to use their test benches as a workstation. Lian Li's latest test bench is its most flexible yet - a sleek, minimal platform for easy hardware swapping, with an optional kit that encloses the bench with radiator mounts and an acrylic cover.

"Testing on an open bench requires careful planning, else it leads to misguided results. Most gamers have closed cases, affecting thermal, acoustic, and even performance results compared to exposed hardware. I'm working to represent that more accurately. While my measurements are easier to collect, more applicable, and completely objective, it was the close cooperation with Lian Li that helped move this project forward. The closed case gave me the platform I've been needing, and that readers have been asking for, to facilitate more realistic reviews." - Igor Wallossek - Senior Contributing Editor Tom's Hardware.
