Kapsel MCE

This site has moved to AVReport.com

Look at this picture and guess what it is? A Next Gen Linux running highly hackable Roomba? No, it is a Media Center PC from Swedish company Kapsel that will be one of the first to use Intel Viiv dual-core processor. It cannot suck dust but it surely can record shows and spit out HDTV and 7.1 channels of surround sound. The shell of this device is made of ceramics so dropping it is highly discouraged. Kapsel MCE can be installed vertically, horizontally, or wall-mounted [right next to your Roomba].
The MCE will be available from IKEA in the first quarter of 2006. No price is know but don't expect cheap stuff. Just the ceramics will cost you a price of a regular PC.
