Mouse Box hides a wireless PC inside a mouse | Chips | Geek.com

PCs come in all shapes and sizes nowadays, from full-sized gaming towers to sticks not much larger than a pack of gum. Soon you’ll be able to buy one that looks a lot like a wireless mouse.

This is Mouse Box, and as you can tell from the pair of USB 3.0 ports on the front of the render it’s not just another input device. There’s an entire PC hidden beneath that inconspicuous-looking shell. The Mouse Box team has opted for a quad-core ARM processor clocked at 1.4GHz to power the system. 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi connectivity will come as standard, as will 128GB of internal storage.

To keep things as cordless as possible, Mouse Box will ship with a wireless HDMI receiver. The Mouse Box team also wants to create a mouse pad that packs an inductive charger so that you don’t need to plug it in just to replenish its batteries. Just use it and park it on your mouse pad, and when you need to leave the Mouse Box is already fully charged.

Mouse Box is still just a concept at the moment, but it’s certainly an interesting take on PC design. A completely wireless portable? Yes, please. Just don’t forget to take your keyboard along with you; you’ll probably need to do some typing eventually.

As far as saving space goes (an advantage mentioned in the video), Mouse Box certainly doesn’t use up any less space than the Intel Compute Stick or any of the other HDMI stick PCs that have already hit the market. But one advantage it does have is trust. Using your own Mouse Box and your own keyboard on a display should be quite a bit safer than using a stick PC and someone else’s input devices. Keyloggers and USB drive-by malware can hide just about anywhere these days.
