Your whole PC is in this mouse

Mouse-Box

A Polish software and hardware developer has taken the idea of a compact PC to a new, and rather small, level, by creating  a prototype computer which is entirely housed within a mouse.

Dubbed the Mouse-Box, the device is the brain-child of Przemysław Strzelczyk – who according to his LinkedIn profile is a software engineer for Nokia Networks.

The Mouse-Box look and works like a conventional mouse, but contains a processor, flash storage, an HDMI connection, and Wi-Fi connectivity.

It is connected to a monitor via the HDMI interface and connects to an Internet connection through standard Wi-Fi.

“From now on, you don’t need to buy a few devices to keep your computer always at hand. Mouse-Box uses the power of a mouse, an invariable component in a computer set for many years,” states the Mouse-Box site.

“By virtue of placing a computer in a mouse, the two most powerful elements have been combined in one unity.”

The Mouse-Box’s basic specifications are listed below.

  • 1.4GHz ARM Cortex CPU
  • 128GB flash storage (cloud storage optional)
  • Micro HDMI port
  • Wi-Fi connectivity
  • 2 x USB 3.0 ports

Work is also underway to include a wireless mouse pad charger, according to the developers, who are inviting potential financial backers to contact them.

Responding to questions sent by MyBroadband, the Mouse-Box team said the product was still very much in the prototype phase, and they were looking for a partner to launch the mini-PC commercially.

“I think after we find a good partner it will take not so long [to launch] – maybe a few months,” said the team.

No price point has been decided as yet, but the Mouse-Box will be “very cheap” and available internationally, according to its developers.

A video detailing the Mouse-Box is embedded below.
