CS918T is an Android TV Box powered by Rockchip RK3188 quad core SoC with the usual 2GB RAM, 8GB Flash, and various ports such as HDMI, USB, Ethernet, etc… that also features a 2MP webcam, and sells for just $59.99 including shipping on Aliexpress. The box does not appear to be related to CS918 / KR-42-1 that was popular a few months ago.
CS918T technical specs:
- SoC – Rockchip RK3188 Quad core ARM Cortex A9 processor @ 1.6GHz with Mali-400MP4 GPU

There does not seem to be a system to install the device on top of the TV, but at $60, it looks much better value than camera enabled quad core mini PCs like Jesurun NX003II, or Tronsmart NX. CS918T is actually $30 to $40 cheaper than these, and I thought the seller on Aliexpress may not have made a pricing mistake, but I could find it on Ebay for $67, so the price seems plausible.
