Space Cube Desktop PC For Tiny Borgs
I do have a soft-spot for the little micros that you can hide away and still are usable if you’d prefer a desktop when at home.
This two-inch-square Space Cube computer has apparently been making the rounds in Japan for quite a while but PC Pro have finally managed to sneak one into the UK!
TheÂ little stow-away isÂ packing a 300MHz NEC VR5701 processor, 64MB of RAM, a 1GB CompactFlash card, and a special version of Red Hat Linux, along with a single USB port, VGA out, built-in Ethernet and, most importantly for its target market, a SpaceWire port, which is used by the likes of NASA and the European Space Agency.
The bad news is that theÂ initial price was quite a reasonableÂ $325Â looksÂ as though it may be heading more to the region ofÂ Â£1,500 (or over $2,700)!
