Ouya and MakerBot Team Up for 3-D Printable Gaming Console

• Wired.com
 With the first consoles being shipped out to early backers on March 28, Ouya has announced a partnership with MakerBot, the desktop 3-D printer manufacturer.
 
Templates and specifications for the Ouya console case have been uploaded to MakerBot’s website Thingiverse.com, allowing users with a 3-D printer to customize their console. The template includes a case, a lid and a spring-loaded button.

Ouya is an attempt to break the stranglehold of closed-platform gaming consoles like PlayStation and Xbox. Its Kickstarter campaign in 2012 raised over $8.5 million (£5.6 million) from 63,000 backers. The console costs $99 (£65), runs on a version of Android, and allows gamers to try games for free before purchasing them.
