What if that phone charger you casually toss into your bag everyday was more than just a power adaptor? What if was secretly a fully fledged Windows PC? Well, then you’d have the Quanta Compute Plug.
The smart power-plug was just unveiled at Computex today — it’s Intel Compute Stick, but the plug does seem to have a few advantages. For one, it will be able to draw more power from a wall outlet than HDMI devices can pull from a TV. More importantly, though, is how the user will control it: Microsoft’s Nick Parker says that the Compute Plug can be controlled by voice, using Cortana in conjunction with a remote or a Bluetooth headset.
Want one? Get ready to wait: there’s no word yet on pricing availability or even the device’s internal specifications.
