OUYA joins forces with MakerBot, lets users make custom 3D-printed consoles

To go with the open approach to the OUYA console, the company has teamed with MakerBot to offer users the chance to customize the look of their Android-based gaming system using the Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer. Bad ass.

MakerBot has created the necessary .stl files to functionally fit the innards of the OUYA, but what intrepid designers do with the enclosure is up to them. All the files necessary to completely customize the 3D model and send to a printer are provided.

The one catch is you will need to own an expensive 3D printer or at least have access to one. Thankfully, there are quite a few companies offering 3D printing services, so the project is feasibly affordable. Head over to the Thingiverse page for all the details.

    I dont know what changed with phandroid.com but the web page no longer formats properly in chrome for android. It is really annoying that we cant see all of the text in the articles without scrolling left and right. Maybe its my phone im not sure but every other website is fine.

        Nah I tried it but it still leaves a lot to be desired. Also I use Reader for my news (soon to be Feedly I suppose) and that is much more efficient than going into individual apps. Thing is the web site used to be fine…they must have changed something. Since it appears to be happening on multiple browsers and currents there is most certainly an issue.

    There are a ton of these types of printers and some are quite low in cost as low as $599 and maybe even lower so it is feasible for the average hobbyist to do this at home.
