While browsing the online stores of local hardware retailers, I came across the In Win Winbot on Rebel Tech today.
Both the strange shape of the device and its hefty price tag – R42,353 – immediately grabbed my attention, and it took me a while to discover that this expensive machine was in fact a gaming PC chassis.
While it looks stylish and futuristic, it is most definitely not small – and weighs an impressive 51kg.
Also curious was its extremely high price – far more that other PC cases I have seen for sale in South Africa.
The In Win Winbot does boast some unique features, however, including the ability to rotate and open its chassis using motorised functions.
These actions can also be controlled by hand gestures, thanks to its built-in facial detection camera.
The PC chassis learns the face of its owner and will respond with various actions when they perform specific hand gestures.
In Win initially showcased the case at Computex 2017, where it was able to follow the instructions of users attending the event.
Amazon Alexa is also supported by the PC case, meaning owners will be able to give the chassis voice commands.
In Win’s Winbot can take an ATX power supply, 380mm graphics cards, and a standard ATX motherboard, although various length limitations apply to coolers and radiator heights for liquid cooling setups.
If you want to order this monster, it is available from Rebel Tech in a selection of colours.
Images of the case, and a video of its unique features, are embedded below.
