Photo Hunt: Tiny

Have you seen the tiny computer that fits in your palm?

Personal Media Corporation in Japan has developed the smallest computer that comes equipped with network interface, compact flash card slot, external display output, USB and RS-232C(serial) connectors.

The name of this tiny computer is named as Teacube.

Teacube is suitable developed as KIOSK terminal for public usage, for example Information Kiosk for museums, train stations and shopping mall. Also, can be developed into database terminal to search books in libraries, watch-line terminal in factories or ticketing systems.

Look at the pictures below which I took on a visit to CommunicAsia in year 2004, the size of the tiny computer is smaller than an orange.

    thanks everyone for your messages.
    This tiny computer is currently available and in-used in many places, mostly unknown to us. It just cost a few thousand dollars.
