It seems to work now. Not entirely sure why, but I saw the problem happen on my phone this morning and it disappeared after I reloaded the page. Very strange. My web hosting is kind of odd, it may have caused the problem.

I have confirmed that this happens sometimes, seemingly at random. I suggest using the image only version instead. Thanks!

While I find these Mini Indigos very interesting, it makes me want to build a Mini CM-5 and put a Parallella board in... All the blinkenlights

Just looked up that thing. If you were to scale down one of those things to fit on your desk, you might preserve scale best by making the front an LCD screen and replacing each indicator light with a pixel!

That would be really cool, though each tower would still be as tall as a Fuel at 1/8th scale. 1/32 scale with all 5 towers lined up would be a really cool display to install on a wall table.

This has been the biggest problem in coming up with some kind of design. Maybe I'm over thinking it. Sorry to hijack your thread, by the way...
Anyhow, maybe i'll send you a mail, we can discuss further - I don't really know anything about 3D printing!

If you do a CM-2 as well, I'm in!

Dude, a CM-2 would be seriously cool. Perhaps in AL instead of 3D printed.

You want an Aluminum CM-2? I mean I know people, but... seems like a lot of welding.

CNC maybe, but that's an expensive machine.

Time for another quick update on the product.

First off, let's talk SBCs. Since the launch of the Mini Indigo, I have shipped many units with both the ODROID-XU4 and with no SBC. However, to date, not a single order including a Raspberry Pi 3 has been placed. This is likely due to the Pi's lack of accessible USB and ethernet ports when installed in the case, as well as the greater technical capabilities of the ODROID. Due to this, the Raspberry Pi option has been dropped from the website. If you wish to use your Mini Indigo with a Raspberry Pi, you may still opt to order the case empty and install one yourself. The case design currently in production, model number IG-01, still includes mounting slots for a Raspberry Pi. Do note, however, that, as said before, when installed in the case, the USB and ethernet ports of the Raspberry Pi are blocked by the top of the case, leaving only the power connector, HDMI port, and 3.5mm audio/video jack.

Second, the Mini Indigo website now supports coupon codes. No codes are usable right now, however this feature may in future be used to offer flash sales via a Nekochan Forums post, so keep an eye out. Sales could perhaps be offered on important dates in SGI's history, or on January 28th, 2018, the 15th anniversary of Nekochan Forums.

As always, the Mini Indigo is available at http://dodoid.net/indigo.
