MorphOS-News points out another Pegasos demo, "at the BeOS fair 'BeGeistert' in Düsseldorf." Photos and translation.
What caught my eye was a sketch of a Walker tower, which finally explains that case design. Hope it's not old news.

In reply to Comment 10 (Rob):
To me, the design would work better if the bottom section wasn't a simple rectangle, but segmented by horizontal lines in some way. When I first heard of the Walker and how it could be added on to, I thought maybe there'd be something like rather flat drive-bay-sized sections stuck under it that'd be well-defined visually. It'd be something like how a component stereo looks when you stack the pieces, though maybe a little smoother. Anyway, the sketch is just a sketch. I imagine if the Walker was going to be put into production, the designers would think about how to make it more interesting. There's no point in doing it if it just looks like an ordinary PC case with a weird top.
