Designer breaks up trad PC design

Three pin plug and play

SANS - Survey on application security programs

If a small form factor PC is still too large for your liking or offers more functionality than you need, then one designer has created a more manageable solution. Uni is a PC concept where operating units are designed as separate white-box units which can then be connected together via three-pin plugs, as and when required.

The main operating unit is called Think and, according to this report, performs most of the processing and data handling functions. However, in order to store data or play DVD discs, users must plug additional units into the core Think unit.

Uni turns PC design on its head

The report also claims the units communicate with each other through wireless USB, at up to 480Mbps, while digital signals can be transferred through standard household power lines at up to 200Mbps.

There's no explanation as to how the various units connect up to peripheral devices, such as monitors, keyboards or mice. However, the pictures do highlight the potential presence of USB ports and, possibly, memory card slots.

Unfortunately, Uni is still a concept at the moment, but we would be very interested to see it working, if it ever gets to that stage.
