Asus posts image of a metal box, will tell us what it is tomorrow

Asus has been busy rolling out and announcing new devices, such as the Eagle Eye GX1000 gaming mouse launched a couple days ago and the branded GeForce GTX Titan graphics card last month. Now, according to a post made on its Google+ account, the company has another product that is about to be launched, but it wants us to guess what it is.

The company posted the image you see above on its G+ and said, “Hum… What is that? Get creative! No tips this time. We’ll reveal tomorrow what this new +ASUS device is. So will you or your friends find the answer by then? GO! ;-)” Not surprisingly, a lot of the responses are about some type of laptop or netbook, but I wouldn’t hold your breath.

A quick glance tells you the square’s dimensions are wrong for a laptop of any type, and there are what appear to be two small black rubber feet on the bottom of the device. Of course, there are a million other guesses as well ranging from set-top box to robotic vacuum to the tongue-in-cheek, “It’s a metal box.”

What we do know is that it is metallic, and it sits upright on small feet. It has a centered logo, and could be any size because the image doesn’t give us any sort of reference to judge how big it is. As the folks over at Engadget point out, it certainly looks similar to the VariDrive, which you can check out here.
