Intel Compute Stick Windows 10 edition might be near

Intel Compute Stick Windows 10 edition might be near

It is, of course, inevitable, though probably something we didn't expect to happen soon. Intel's Compute Stick, which turns any display with an HDMI port into a PC, is barely a year old. It came with Windows 8.1 naturally, which makes it eligible for a Windows 10 update any time soon, depending on your luck at the reservation queue. It seems, however, that Intel might have a treat for those impatient to get their hands on the latest Windows, with a Windows 10 version of the HDMI dongle just around the corner.

Cloudsto X86 Nano PC has its own battery, can charge phones

Cloudsto X86 Nano PC has its own battery, can charge phones

Computers are getting smaller and smaller. Just look at the ones in your pocket or even on your wrist. Even traditional PCs now have "nano" and "pico" sizes that can fit in almost any nook and cranny or even in your pocket.

They are, at the very least, tethered to a power supply to be even useful. One rather intriguing new product, however, tries to address that limitation. This odd GULEEK i8 "Windows 8.1 Smart Google TV Player" indeed comes with almost everything other pico computers have to offer with just a single but very important difference. It has its own 3,000 mAh battery inside.

Popular for delivering small computers, some of which run Linux or are powered by ARM processors, Zotac has lately been delving into tiny boxes that run Windows 8.1 right out of the box, pardon the pun.

OmniTouch reminds us of the science fiction future of all things touchscreen [Video]

OmniTouch reminds us of the science fiction future of all things touchscreen [Video]

It's time again to talk about touchscreens on every surface imaginable, this time through Microsoft Research and Carnegie Mellon University. These groups have brought forth a solution for the age-old first-world problem of how a person who wants dial their phone using only the surface of their hand might do so. The solution is this: OmniTouch, a system that although currently requires the user to wear an obtrusive shoulder-mounted monstrosity to project and collect interfaces and the ways they interact with them, will sometime be as simple as a box of playing-cards-sized device which will work with the user to turn any surface into a touchscreen.
