We’ve seen some pretty funky designs for PCs over the years, with the most recent being Intel’s Compute Stick that manages to cram quad-core Atom power into a device the size of a Roku Streaming Stick or Fire TV Stick. Now we’re seeing a new development in the PC miniaturization game with a concept that manages to cram a fully functional PC into a mouse.
The Mouse-Box is currently only in the prototype stage, but includes a 1.4GHz quad-core ARM processor, 128GB of flash storage, 802.11n, an accelerometer and a gyroscope. It also includes micro HDMI (for connecting it to an external display) and surprisingly, two USB 3.0 ports. The Mouse-Box has a built-in battery to power the device, and even includes a slot for a second battery to further boost your runtime.
And speaking of the battery, the Mouse-Box can be powered via an inductive charging pad, which is a neat trick. The pad can be rolled up and stowed away in a box when not in use.
Seeing as how the Mouse-Box is still in the early stages of development, its developers are simply trying to get the word out with the video below. And of course, there’s no word on pricing or availability for this funky PC; not to mention what operating system and apps it would run, although we’re assuming it would be some variant of Android.
