Could this metal PC actually be the world’s smallest working PC out there? Is the Space cube really a functioning computer within a miniature sized cube? After searching, we find that this science fiction product may be an amazingly convenient and compact computer that we may want to take to space with us.
How small is the world’s smallest PC? The space cube measures at approximately 2 inches for each of its sides. The pictures provided also compare it with other items, so you can see the size proportion for yourself. This time you do not have to take anyone’s word for it, it truly is a magnificent miniature space cube.
The specifications included may not be up to par to what we are mostly using on a daily basis, but it doesn’t make the Space Cube any less desirable.
It runs on a processor of 300MHZ, has 16MB of flash memory (also a slot with a 1GB Compact Flash card) and runs Linux’s Red Hat. With only 64MB memory, it will definitely not run like you are used to when using Youtube but still cool for such a small PC.
Two of its sides have all the ports necessary to attach what’s needed: a specified VGA output for a monitor and using a USB hub, you may increase the number of peripherals you may add such as keyboard, mouse and more. The actual cube’s casing is made of metal, so the feel is true and respect is well deserved.
An amazing addition to this tiny PC is the Space Wire Port, which is the kind of interface similar to the likes NASA uses. Different processing units and sensors may be attached to the Space Wire Port, which allow the metal Cube additional functionality. Moreover, the Space Cube may also be used to interlink between separate electronics at different places; kind of like a mediator between computers.
This miniature PC may not be something that we would all flock to, since its specs are cute for its size but more is truly desired. Still, it presents wonderful progress and may challenge actual computer geeks to create something better and more practical for daily individuals. Either way, the pricing is a tad high for many, speculated to be approximately 1500 pounds ($2700).
