The Computer From Dell Fits In A Flash Drive!

The Computer From Dell That Fits Into A Flash Drive!

 

We are used to advances in design and technology making things smaller, but Dell is working on a device that they call “Project Ophelia!” and it promises to allow the user to turn a TV or monitor into a computer. In fact, what it actually does it connects to an HDMI port and using cloud technology will then access the user’s remote desktop, effectively allowing the user to get onto their own computer using a TV or monitor. Therefore, it is great for anyone who is travelling and does not want to carry their laptop around with them.

According to Dell, this what we can expect to be getting from this new portable computer;

Project Ophelia is only slightly larger than a USB flash drive, yet functions as a multipurpose Citrix® or VMware® thin client, a web client for web-based apps or a stand-alone device for local apps and content. It includes the Android OS for access to thousands of apps in the Google App store.

Apparently, according to some sources this Android powered device is going to cost around $100 (£63) which is not bad for such a useful tool.
