[Game developer David] Braben has developed a tiny USB stick PC that has an
HDMI port on one end and a USB port on the other. You plug it into an HDMI
socket and then connect a keyboard via the USB port, giving you a fully
functioning machine running a version of Linux. The cost? $25. The hardware
being offered is no slouch either. It uses a 700MHz ARM11 processor coupled
with 128MB of RAM and runs OpenGL ES 2.0, allowing for decent graphics
performance with 1080p output confirmed...
