The Cheapest USB Stick Computer
Game developer David Barben just managed to develop a USB stick PC that costs only 25 dollars. The tiny two socket computer lets you plug a keyboard via the USB port and HDMI on the other end.
The 25$ computer uses a 700MHz ARM11 processor, 128 MB of RAM and runs OpenGL ES 2.0 which will allow a graphic performance of 1080p output. Finally, an SD card slot is used for storage.
We can expect it to run a range of Linux distributions, but it looks like Ubuntu may be the distro it ships with. That means it will handle web browsing, run office applications, and give the user a fully functional computer to play with as soon as it’s plugged in. All that and it can be carried in your pocket or on a key chain.
