[IC] Angel Wings Poker Case
« on: Sun, 25 August 2013, 23:25:58 »
Just checking if this design would be of interest to anyone here?

I am planning on coming out with a line of aluminum and acrylic cases in the near future and am going to do things a little different.  From what I've seen so far, there hasn't been any real radical case designs, in my opinion.

The below image would be in aluminum and the wings would be hand-crafted with the possibility to detach the wings and also change them with other color wings, possibly ones with different schemes.  For instance, multi-colored painted feathers.

I am based out of the U.A.E. and have access to a plethora of manufacturing services for decent rates.

My brand will be, melt, after my GeekHack name.  Let's see how many of you would be interested first before I go and create some designs and get prototypes rolling.  Stay tuned for more designs!

The wings will be adjustable to tilt (like flap).  Also, they might be a bit smaller than the ones in the picture.

To me a 60% board is always an exercise in minimalism. I think adding more components like that would negate the charms of the poker.

I think something more subtle might catch on better. Maybe if you did some kind of relief on the sides for wings? Or maybe a sculpted spacebar with wings on it. But who knows, that's just one man's opinion.

thanks for that, I'll also work on some variants.

I feel the same way. Personally I am not a huge fan of the wings idea, but I will keep an eye on this thread and see what you come up with next :)

Just an idea, poking out of the top? from the middle?
unless they have some unforeseeable downside (like they're actually made of cream cheese cunningly disguised as ABS)

I'm toying with the idea of having the cases have a hole on either side where the owner can interchange different design elements such as the angel wings above and the horns below.  Horny.

it will definitely be done the right way.  Precise and as minimal as can be given the design elements.

This definitely isn't my kind of design. I only like very simple cases, so I can't say I'm interested in owning one. However, I'm interested to see how this turns out. Good luck.

Maybe laser engrave the wings onto the case somewhere?  I know I wouldn't buy a case like this in a million years, but might be interested in something with some interesting engraved designs on it.

There would be room on the top and bottom as well, depending on the case design.

You can design a case however you want, you don't have to keep a minimalist border.
