Rodent-Sized Computer Is A Mouse AND A Desktop In One!
In Poland, a guy just created the craziest compact PC that you will probably ever see. His new invention is called "The Mouse Box", and it is literally small enough to fit inside a regular computer mouse says a software engineer from Nokia.
Is It A Mouse Or A Computer? Or Both?
Not only can it fit inside of a mouse, but that is exactly what it is: a computer inside of a mouse. With the Mouse Box, you really don't have to worry about traveling with your computer at all. You could probably fit it inside of your pocket actually. By combining a computer and a mouse into one thing, you literally have the two most important aspects of a desktop PC all in one.
But What Are The Specs?
Under the hood of this little guy, there's: a 1.4GHz processor, 128 GB of flash storage, Wi-Fi connectivity, a micro HDMI port so that you can connect it to just about any monitor or even a TV, two USB 3.0 ports, a gyroscope, and an accelerometer. And keep in mind, this is all inside of a mouse.
Which OS Will It Handle?
So far we don't really know what operating systems are able to run on the Mouse Box. But other than that, it has everything it needs to run a lot of programs and process a lot of data. Of course, you will also be able to greatly increase your productivity by using the cloud to for storage.
MouseBox Could Use Your Help!
Right now, the company plans to hopefully launch the product in a few months. At the moment, they are still building prototypes and working on a wireless charger for the Mouse Box. They are also working on trying to find financial backing to make all of this a lot smoother, easier and faster. With a product like this, I feel like it won't be that hard to find investors; though it appears they are still looking for donations and funding. Perhaps the best thing about the Mouse Box is the fact that it is going to be a relatively inexpensive device, so you'll be able to take one home soon!
