Hello,

I need help for a school assignment. I need to suggest one material that could potentially be used in building computer cases commercially. The material has to be new and can not already be widely used in computer cases.

Thanks in advance

Rubber is already used in computer cases today.

rubber isn't used for the entire case, just grommets or standoffs for vibration reduction. I have yet to see a case made ENTIRELY out of rubber. @david179057, paper might burn too easily

The case does not have to be made entirely of the material. The material needs to be realistic so that companies can use it to some component within their case that gives it an edge, whether it be financially, ergonomically or in any other way. So the material needs to be something that's not impossible for a company to actually use with their cases.

Thanks for all the suggestions, keep them coming!
