Halcyon (IPA: /ËˆhælsiÉ™n/), a term that originates from the Greek myth of Alcyone, is used most often to mean golden or marked by peace and prosperity.
I can’t really draw a relation between HTPC cases on Halcyon but the term golden just might fit with what they have in store for the HTPC chassis world. Founded by a guy with a lot of years of HTPC chassis experience, Halycon is based out of the UK with plans to sell in the US market as well. I will provide a bit more background about the company as time goes on but for now, I will get you salivating with some pictures of the first two cases they plan to introduce to market.
Main featuresof bothcases include:
Modular hard drive
12mm thick aluminum front plate
Interchangeable front plates (coming later)
Comes in kit form (takes 10 minutes and 8 bolts to assemble) to reduce packaging
Comes with Phillips remote
Sliding lid and lic lock mechanism (see pic after the break)
