Yes, the 'Frozen Newton' project was an independent proof-of-concept.
In fact, there were a couple of Japanese sites with separate
information regarding building clear MP2x00 Newtons.

Hey Sonny, I'm not sure if you have links or images from this
particular site in your Flickr sets.

As well, there was a movement on NTLK to revive the project as a
commercial venture ... which kind of petered out. Here are a few
threads from the archive which might proof an interesting read:
