Low Powered Wall Socket PC

Low Powered Wall Socket PC

The whole of this tiny computer is mounted on two circuit boards and housed in the 'wall socket' case. The CPU is 'an up to 500MHz' AMD RISC processor which AMD says is the equivalent of a 1.2GHz x86 processor. The Jack PC is designed to connect to "any terminal server-based environment", has Citrix ICA and Microsoft RDP (remote desktop) clients built in and will run Internet Explorer 6.0 to connect to Web-driven applications.

A UK based company ‘Jade Intergration’ released one of the worlds smallest thin-client computers. The ‘Jack PC’ fits into any standard size wall socket and can be powered from an Ethernet connection, this break through in technology allows the PC to run on just 5 watts of power instead of the usual 80 watts it takes to run a regular computer, making the ‘Jack PC’ extremely efficient computer.

Originally designed over a year ago by ‘Chip PC Technologies’ the device has been tested and perfected. Managing director of Jade Intergation, Andy MacLellan believes the device is,

“one of the biggest developments in PCs that we have seen” and is one of the “ever-growing range of thin clients, which are rapidly replacing PCs as a more effective desktop computing solution for modern businesses”.

  1. Very nice Cool Pc

  2. Another practically useless design and engineering exercise.  There is a reason nothing came out of it after almost two years. Who on earth would want a PC stuck in their wall and unmovable? It may make sense once all peripherals are wireless, but until then…

  3. wait, did it say this is a “thin client”? as in, you connect to a server and it does all teh computation for you? wouldnt that lag significantly?
