If there's any place to get a glimpse of the future of electronics, it's at CES. The Shacknews street team was on-site at CES 2019 for just such a purpose, and managed to get an early look at the upcoming 2019 offerings from iBuyPower's line of PC cases and chassis. The company had several new models on display, including a Snowblind PC case with four separate transparent LCD displays. Check them out in the video below.

As can be seen in the video, the real star of the show is the four-sided Snowblind PC case. This case offers up four of iBuyPower's "crystal clear" transparent LCD displays running at 1280x1024 resolutions. Since the case has a display on each side, the question of visibility was quickly raised, and the team came up with a rather novel solution. Instead of forcing certain transparent displays to be hidden by walls or furniture, the entire case was put on a spinning mechanism that slowly rotates. Wires are routed through a stationary base, and the screens themselves are powered through the system's GPU.

The spinning Snowblind PC case is still a prototype — in fact, the team says they only have the one working prototype so far. As such, its current projected cost is a staggering $8,000 dollars. Looking toward a hopeful future, iBuyPower speculates that it could mass-produce the case to sell for around $1,500, but for now, that's just speculation.

Fortunately, the team does have a few more traditional cases that should be on sale soon. One such case is the new Snowblind S, part of the third generation of Snowblind design, which also features the company's transparent LCD display on one side. Finally, the latest Revolt 3 case is revealed in prototype form, offering the transparent display in a smaller form factor.

More information about each of these PC cases can be found over on the official iBuyPower website. For more tech videos, including in-depth developer interviews and convention coverage for events like CES or E3, be sure to check out both Shacknews and GamerHub.tv over on YouTube.
