For people who are considering on buying an Amiga Reloaded motherboard in 2016 from Individual Computers, you will be in for a nice surprise !
Crowdfunding will be done through Indiegogo.com. One of the biggest crowdfunding websites in the world. Preferable above Kickstarter due to the lower fees and PayPal support.
The launch of the campaign on Indiegogo is planned on December 3 2015.
The video and pictures will give you a good idea of what to expect from the campaign and the concept of the AMIGA CASE. Of course the actual campaign itself will give you more inside information.
Please use this thread for all your questions and comments. I really appreciate your feedback, it is very valuable for this project. Please do not PM me unless this absolutely necessary, thank you.

Update 26-11-2015 : added 3 extra pictures
To date, there is no reason to postpone the launch on December 3. I am happy to share this news with you.
To be able to contribute to my campaign on Indiegogo it is necessary to have a PayPal account.
On Indiegogo most campaigns have flexible goals. The campaign for the AMIGA CASE will have a fixed goal because a minimum amount of money has to be raised for making the molds and for completing the project. For more information about flexible and fixed goals, I refer to Indiegogo.com .
I have to postpone the crowdfunding campaign due to unforeseen matters, hammering down the final details. I know some of you will be disappointed, but I want to do it the first time right. I will come with a next update as soon as possible.
I have great news:
The AMIGA CASE project is now officially licensed by Amiga Inc.
The original Amiga logo will be on the AMIGA CASE !!!
Video is available again. Pictures not yet up to date.
Next week I'll come with a more detailed update.
As promised a more detailed update.
Launch is nearby. If everything goes as planned the project will be launched in the week of 11-18 April.
Awaiting confirmation from my preferred manufacturer concerning the timeline of the project.
Secondly I am trying to get one more official supporter to join the project. Launch of the project is not depending on that.
As stated earlier, AMIGA CASE is now officially licensed by Amiga Inc. so I added pictures of the AMIGA CASE with the original Amiga Logo.
Prices of the AMIGA CASE are unchanged.
I am very happy to announce the AMIGA CASE project is successfully launched on Indiegogo.com
Tell your friends, family, colleagues, your neighbours, everybody who might be interested.
