Thinking about taking your sketch up and turning it into a case for some current smartphone that doesn't (usually) burst into flames?

Looks like it would look good on my Nexus 5X. I'd buy one.

I based the dimensions on that of an iPhone 7 just because numbers were readily available, but I could look into making one for the 5X. It would of course have to make the phone bigger because we can't cut grooves into the edges of your Nexus, so we would need to make the ridges stick out as opposed to the grooves stick in. I could look into button placements as well so that I could design the buttons. I own a 3D printer, is this a serious interest of yours?

I think a bright purple SGI case would be fun on it, so I'll say, yes. :) However, it does seem like it would need a lot of fine tuning.

More likely given HP's history it will be the discontinuance of all of SGI's current products with a recommended "upgrade path" to currently existing HP products that have "equivalent or better functionality".

Can you spot the jaded Apollo/DEC user here? If your users weren't running to HP-UX before then why would they start now because you've discontinued what they had?
