Shimafuji Space Cube

Japan's Shimafuji has just designed what may be one of the smallest functional computers yet, based on its claims. The Space Cube puts virtually all essential features into a device slightly larger than two inches cubed. Ethernet networking, a VGA display port for visuals up to 1024x768, USB, and audio input as well as output are all included. Storage is handled by removable CF cards, allowing the Cube to expand or even replace data altogether over time. 16MB of permanent flash memory helps store essentials. The technology suits the PC to specialized tasks such as satellites as well as use in the more traditional computer role, the company says.

Pricing for the mini-computer has gone unlisted, but multiple versions are available: a starter Space Cube begins with a 200MHz, 64-bit RISC-based processor and 64MB of RAM but scales up to 300MHz for specialized needs. Availability outside of Japan is possible but has not been published. [via PC Launches]
