It has been a decade since Marvell first introduced a computer that can fit in a plug, which they call the Sheevaplug. And now, we see another take on the idea of a mini PC with the iLife MP8 Micro PC.
The device is not exactly a whole PC squeezed into a power plug, but it paves the way for that idea to come true. The size of iLife MP8 Micro PC is 50 x 50 x 40mm, and it can work with a wireless keyboard, mouse, and a Wireless HDMI dongle.
The compact size does not mean that users have to sacrifice the configurations. Under the hood, we have eMMC storage of 64GB, the memory of 4GB, and Intel Celeron N4100.
Options for connectivity include an HDMI port, a microSD card slot, an audio connector, and two USB 3.1 ports. The iLife MP8 Micro PC draws power from a USB Type-C port.
The compact PC was exhibited at Hong Kong Electronics Fair and according to the company’s representative, the device only takes up a quarter of the space for a standard mini PC.
Users can acquire the iLife MP8 micro PC in either black, with metal and vents on the side, or white with plastic and venting holes on top.
For now, the availability and price of the device have not yet been made public.
This is not the first PC small enough to fit in a power plug that has ever been introduced. A few years ago, we heard about the Quanta Compute Plug from Microsoft. However, it does not make much of an impression to be used widely. The Sunvell T95P, which runs on Android, is another device that can be plugged into a two-pin socket.
