At 2" x 2" x 2.2", the Space Cube PC is tiny. In fact, it might be smaller than your MP3 player. The tiny PC boasts a 300 MHz processor, 64 mb of SDRAM and a 1280 x 1024 external video connector. Also known as the SEMC5701A Teacup, this tiny computer runs on Linux.

Implications - Consumers are looking for smaller ways to perform the tasks that they typically perform on bulkier technology. Rather than simply pertaining to convenience, small products also have an enormous kitsch factor. Designers can create toys, games and home decor that are minuscule, culminating in a product that serves as something that sparks conversation and has a humorous aspect to it.
