The microchips, which appeared as a by-product of the SDI program, are a good example of a not so direct technological development. The development of smart phones and tablets in the direction of capability increase generated such a thing as a powerful, yet small and “cold” CPUs based on various ARM cores.

As a result, at the end of last year, several radically small flash drive size computers appeared on the market. Of course, extremely small computers have already appeared in the past, such as web server, powered by a potato, but in 2012 such computers became possible to buy for a reasonable price.

This is Cotton Candy, with a dual-core ARM and OS Android 4.0 or Ubuntu to choose from.

Such a device has an HDMI output to connect to a monitor or a TV, WiFi, Bluetooth and USB input for any peripherals (such as speakerphone).

As soon as we laid our hands on one of those computers, the first thing we did, of course, was launching TrueConf on it.

Connect TV, USB camera and a mouse for controls.

The sound is captured by the USB camera’s microphone and then transferred to a TV via HDMI.

Now, if you want to make a call from your TV with our software for videoconferencing, you know what to do 🙂
