About

Available in different design combinations , letting you choose to have a case made entirely of wood, acrylic or a combination design of both. Open.Box case comes in 4 designs: 

  • Full Wood 
  • Full Acrylic  
  • Wood-Acrylic Combo 1(80% wood, 20% acrylic) 
  • Wood-Acrylic Combo 2(20% wood, 80% acrylic)

Assembling the case is extremely simple. Open.Box case includes screwed-in brass standoffs. You need to attach Jetson TX2 with its screws, to the standoffs and the power module to the TX2's headers. Rest of the assembly process doesn't involve any tool. You have to connect the Case's side panels to the base as shown above and finally interlock with the top. 

Wood has a stress-reducing impact on people at home or workspace. Wood & Acrylic are both non-toxic, very durable, easy to clean and don’t require any maintenance. Thus attributing this case to be safe for indoor use.

Open.Box case can be positioned horizontally or vertically to save desk space(kept beside a MacBook Pro, pencil and a gatorade bottle). 

Ideal for SFF (Small Form Factor) connoisseurs, developers who require a case with the smallest feasible footprint due to restricted desk space & a highly portable system and for gamers who want a high-end PC experience.

Wood & acrylic are both bad conductors of electricity. You don't have to fear, suffering from electric shocks. Just plug in Open.Box case to get started & explore endless possibilities in Artificial Intelligence, without worrying about handling bare electronics. 

Open.Box case has aesthetically designed vents, which aid passive cooling , enhancing heat dissipation for better temperature management and optimal airflow. In addition to the SOC’s fan, these vents help in maintaining a low temperature inside the case, by constantly bringing in fresh air from outside & letting out hot air that might build up, thus not needing an extra fan. This principle results in providing a cooling efficiency like no other case.   

cutout is designed on the front panel for optimal usage of the onboard camera.

The rear panel of Open.Box case is designed for feasible usage of ports.

Open.Box case is designed aesthetically such that it seamlessly adapts to your living room or study place.

Open.Box case has an illuminated Green LED Ring power switch installed, with basic On/Off functions. This switch can be used as: Push to ON and Release for OFF and Push & Hold for FORCED OFF. This will ease working at night, when your lights are turned off. 

Open.Box is absolutely impact resistant due to its strong exterior. 

At 0.5 kg, Open.Box is the lightest case you can ever have, which makes it easily portable.

Open.Box case is so compact, that you can put it in a tote bag or a backpack & travel with ease, without damaging anything. 

  •  Dimensions: (L x W x H) 190mm x 190mm x 60 mm
  •  Weight: 0.5 kg
  •  Material: Veneer MDF White Oak Wood, Black Matte & Gloss Acrylic (Thickness 5.8 mm)
  •  Motherboard support: Nvidia Jetson TX2 (170 x 170 mm)
  •  Power Button: Green LED ring switch
  •  Standoffs: 4 brass standoffs attached (Height 6mm)

“Open.Box” means a boxed enclosure which opens the door to endless possibilities in AI. 

 The launch of the Nvidia Jetson TX2 started a trend among developers to build projects for home automation, IP cameras, smart appliances, low-power HTPC / media centers, self-driving cars, etc along with deploying neural net and vision processing on handheld medical devices, autonomous robots, intelligent vehicles, dash-cams, drones and IoT.

But we observed people facing problems when searching for a case, that would properly enclose the Jetson TX2. We tried different cases and enclosures in the market, but were not satisfied.  

Over the past 1 year, we spent days on researching and building prototypes, until we built a case that we wanted ourselves. 

                                                                                  First Prototype
First Prototype

From there, we made a few pivotal improvements to the design, material and technique in an attempt to reach perfection. We embedded together aesthetic, innovation, quality and affordability to bring Open.Box Case to people. 

We are thrilled and proud to hand over Open.Box case to you. We hope that our creativity, research and work has created a product which will revise your life with AI, for better. Your support is greatly valued and respected.
