Zoomstand

Posted by KL Tech Muse at 7:57 AM on February 18, 2013

ZoomstandZoomstand is the first modular stand made for any mobile device including tablets and laptops. The legs are removable and then snap back in. They are adjustable to any height up to 42″, and almost any angle you want. You can use it either sitting, stand or even lounging in bed . It comes with an 8 inch or 5 inch base. More module may be added to it later, such as a pad underneath the base to make it more comfortable to use in bed.

The Zoomstand is still in development but they hope to have their first manufacturing run in mid summer. The product will be available first on the website, and then hopefully in retail stores.  You can go to the Zoomstand website and sign up for updates.

The Xi3 Modular Microcomputer

Posted by tomwiles at 1:22 PM on January 23, 2011

David Politis of Xi3 Microcomputers (http://xi3.org/) presents the Xi3 Modular Computer. It is an extremely small form factor and operates on only 20 watts of power, yet contains a dual-core AMD Athlon x86 processor operating at 2 gigahertz. The standard model ships with 2 gigabytes of DDR 2 RAM and 8 gigabytes of solid SSD solid state drive memory.

The Xi3 is revolutionary in several different respects. Not only is the unit as small as possible, the motherboard is broken down into three modular, replaceable components. Thus it becomes possible to upgrade to the latest technologies such as USB 3.0 once it becomes widely available in the near future or to higher-performance future CPU processors.

Imagine the Xi3 as the heart of a high-performance, low-engergy-drain, absolutely silent-running Media Center PC. Since it’s x86 architecture running on a dual-core processor on a high-performance SSD drive it can easily boot Windows 7 Ultimate in 30 seconds flat.

Why didn’t someone think of this before?
