    My case already emits steam, doesn't look like a train though.

    "Steam" that falls down the train as soon as it comes out of the funnel?

    Dry ice is somewhat more likely, I think Or stage smoke, perhaps. Pretty effect, but I have to ask what the point is (unless the dry ice is part of a sub-ambient cooling loop, of course - that'd be pretty damn cool )

    Wow what a wast of time and money from Lian-Li - when you see how their case design has gone forwards (or backwards as most would argue) in recent years you would think they had better things to do with their time ...

    I like to imagine the design team comming up with somthing like this as a joke and seeing how far it would go.

    When I saw this one, I was like "Are you kidding me?", LOL. Why steam train, really? I suppose nobody wants a chassis that moves around the house while gaming or something, then suddenly some angry cat rides on the thing or some kids would smash it to the ground, thinking it is a toy, LOL. Nice features though, but these could have been showcased better with a better design concept, IMO.

    So how would this work out in real life?
    You sit in the middle of the room while the train choo choo's around you. The length of the hdmi cable is probably a limiting factor methinks. I can foresee situations where after a long gaming session you try to get up only to find that you have been hogtied to your chair while the train slowly keeps on looping more and more cable around you.

    You would need to spend more for a wireless setup - WLAN, wireless KB and mouse, wireless video card, maybe a network printer/scanner connected thru WLAN, run on battery, etc. You almost doubled your expenses for the needed hardware only to house them in a boring mobile chassis. Maybe if the steam train chassis was designed and crafted down to the last detail, replicating a real steam train, that would spell the difference.

    It's different I guess. I haven't really been keeping up with this years Computex.

    If it is whole wireless, then why there are 2 USB3 connectors on the side?

    I find it cheesy and ugly actually and given the very likely high premium price, I am in doubt this would be of any considerable success.
