Another day, another round of cheap boxes that you can plug into your TV to run Android apps on the big screen… including one that looks oddly like a soda can with an eyeball (or webcam) sticking out of it.

Meanwhile, as we wait for Asus to officially tell us about its upcoming Chromebook, another round of photos of the Chrome laptop have leaked.

  1. The soda can is awesome! Maybe someone had a sense of humor and decided to make a mini version of the new Mac Pro? The webcam reminds me of the slime creature popping up in the garbage compacter scene in Star Wars. If that little critter is animated and goes up and down, this is a sure cult classic.

  2. The bezel on the new 11″ Asus Chromebook just made me throwup in my mouth. They could have fit a 13″ screen in there.

  3. I Find the Soda can one interesting. Having a camera is a potentially great advae (as long as you can separate it from the can to pur it somewhere else that’s more convenient). It also seems to have four usb ports, HDMI out and optical out along with some kind of Ethernet…

    1. The cam cannot be removed but remotely controlled and rotated.
      I too find this device very interesting, unfortunately Rockchip was not able to tell me who the manufacturer of this device is.

      1. The remote control feature could be useful. Any idea what resolution it is?

        1. I’m waiting for a reply from Rockchip about the manufacturer of this device. I will update the original post when i have more info.
