VIA AMOS-3001 mini-PC packs tiny EPIA-P820 1080p Pico-ITX board

VIA have announced a new Pico-ITX board, together with a Fanless IPC which uses it, and together they add up to the most powerful and most compact system in the industry.  The VIA AMOS-3001 is the first model to use the VIA EPIA-P820 Pico-ITX board, which measures 10 x 7.2 cm and squeezes in a 1.2GHz VIA Nano CPU, 2GB of memory and the all-in-one VIA VX855 Media System Processor, good for 1080p HD video.

Chiara Robot with WiFi b/g, articulated claw & Pico-ITX brain [Video]

Autonomous, intelligent robots are great, but when they look like classic Transformers characters they're even better.  The handiwork of Mellon University's Tekkotsu lab, the Chiara Robot has six independent legs, a claw arm with six degrees of freedom, and a combination of webcam and IR rangefinder for spotting objects and obstacles.  Even better, this is no simple lab project: the Chiara Robot will actually be manufactured and sold by RoPro Design.

VIA fanless 500MHz PX5000EG Pico-ITX board

VIA has dropped its already-compact Pico-ITX boards into a hot wash and come up with the PX5000EG, measuring in at just 3.9 x 2.8-inches.  The small size is due to VIA dropping the processor speed down to just 500MHz (compared to the existing 1GHz PX1000G) and thus being able to leave off any active cooling.  It'll still support up to 1GB of RAM, though, and has hardware MPEG-2/-4 and WMV9 hardware decoding acceleration.
