    Space Cube - the World's Smallest Linux PC
+--------------------------------------------------------------------+
"Meet [1]the Space Cube the world's smallest fully functional PC.
Primarily designed for use in space, it somehow manages to cram a
working PC with USB ports, card readers, audio outputs and proprietary
interfaces into a tiny cube chassis measuring just two inches square.
It runs a basic Linux front-end, which the blogger takes a look at,
and there are some great photos of the device being loomed over by
everyday objects like coffee mugs and cellphones. It has connections
for controlling various electronics used by ESA, NASA and JAXA, but it
will also apparently be for sale to the public soon, for use by
amateur engineers and robotics clubs."
