Most people use a mouse with their PCs, and since electronics have become so small, a Polish start-up has decided to design a computer-in-a-mouse that can be used as a normal mouse and an ARM based mini PC.
Only part of the specs have been disclosed so far:
- SoC – Quad core ARM Cortex processor @ 1.4 GHz
- System Memory – N/A
- Storage – 128GB flash (cloud storage optional)
- Video Output – Micro HDMI port
- Connectivity – Wi-Fi
- USB – 2 x USB 3.0 ports
- Sensors – Accelerometer, gyroscope
- Optional battery
If the battery is optional, I’m not quite sure where the device gets its power, unless it works with MHL, or one of the USB 3.0 port is used for power. There’s no word about operating system support, but since it’s an ARM processor you should expect Android, and maybe Linux. Future development will include support for Wireless HDMI, and a mouse pad to charge the thing.
The company is currently looking for partners to launch the product. Further details should eventually show up on Mouse Box website.
