I’ve never heard of Piixl but that doesn’t mean they can’t hold a place in my heart. This 3GHz Core 2 Duo machine mounts right behind your HDTV and will cost about $4,000, a pretty penny for something so thin and innocuous.
Called the EdgeCenter 3770 the device is designed to run home theater and kiosk applications and remain completely out of sight. It’s a clever solution to the thorny problem of convincing the rich and famous to stick computers into their living rooms. Available right about now, but in the UK.
