The Jack PC from Chip PC Technologies offers a neat and novel thin-client desktop computing solution where the computer doesn't just plug into the wall, it is the plug in the wall.

Ever have that problem where an outlet is not near by? For a very fixed environment this would work well. Even a current system could be adapted to an outlet with some extension cables or a KVM switch.

P.S. Says "RMI Au processor", but Wikipedia doesn't list that. However, seems that all their stuff is MIPS, so I guess Au is similar. (BTW, founded by same guy who founded NexGen.)

Very cool! I could see these even in my own house... Now what would be cool is to have an HDMI socket in it that can run through the wall and come out were my TV is Very Happy

It can run off of the power of an ethernet cable? sounds like a low power great deal there! Perhaps add a double A battery so no data is lost when the power goes out? Very Happy

Ah now you remind me of that.
Anyway, yes it's interesting for a very fixed environment.
