I thought about it but it would just add extra cost for people who already use their own keyboard. This case will be pricey as it is because it's made with quality in mind so to add another cost to it could be a problem. I like the idea though.

Me and DaemonBite are still working on the MSTR case so don't let the lack of updates fool you ;).
We have updated a few things so we will post about it soon.

Small update. This is just an early render of the pcb design of the MSTR (just so you get the overall idea of what it will look like).
More to come soon.

Here are also some more pics.

More detailed pic of the add-on pcb. One USB-jack will face inwards for adding WiFi or Bluetooth addon (it sits inside so no one takes it during tournaments or if you are at a gathering or whatever).

Example of how the cassette pcb will look, more detail on this soon. 4 x DB15 will be possible.

Nice. I like the idea of the inward facing USB.

I think that after the recent Nt mini Noir that a gunmetal grey is the only way to go with this beauty now. :D

Regarding the colors it all depends on what the customers want I guess, gunmetal should be no problem however.

I'm very, very excited for this. I'd much rather have something a little bigger with ports on front/back than have the tiniest case ever with ports on all sides. Even in the MiSTer Addons PCB case (which is very nice for what it is) the thing looks hokey as all get-out. I just found out about this today and will follow with great interest.

That was my personal reason as well for even starting this project. Something that is solid, looks good next to other things in the home and is easy to use. Hopefully the end product will live up to this.

Really can't wait for this to be ready!!
Seriously, due to how impressed I am with Mike's work on cases for audio equipment and how much I'm liking the look of DaemonBite I'd seriously be happy to pre-order and pay now even though I know it may not be out until the end of the year. Honestly, it's the only reason I've not bought any DaemonBite hardware yet, with this on the way it makes more sense to just wait for this. :D

Thanks for the kind words.
We can't accept any payments yet, sorry.
It is important for us to first know that we will have a product that will work as promised and have the high quality that we strive for.
Regarding time frame I don't think it will take the whole year as we come a long way already.

Don't worry, what you're saying makes sense.

this is pretty much exactly what I'm looking for in a new Mister Case. Looking forward!

Been wanting a bigger wider case for a while instead of the super small yet clunky standard ones.

Also , the reason I swapped my analog io with the digital io is because of the power switch.

Is there a power switch on this?

There will be a power switch on the back, yes.
