One of the three 'official' other uses of an SGI case. The other two are the Espressigo and the IndyCase. All three were build by one guy from SGI Germany.

The rOctane is the merger of the plastic skins of an Silicon Graphics Octane and a JVC UX-1000 mini stereo set.

The stereo is build into the chassis, so that it looks out on top and in front, where usually the hard disks are mounted. The loudspeakers are attached to the chassis like ears.

The sound of the rOctane is not that great, given the quality of the stereo system, but it makes a nice alarm clock.
