When I hear “Nobu”, the first thing that comes to mind — for whatever reason — is a universe occupied by Emperor Palpatine and Jar Jar Binks. If you can get past the Star Wars-like name, the Nobu N8 is quite the nifty in-wall computer and if the company description is to be trusted, it will be able to “handle any household task imaginable.”
It won’t be able to replace your high-end gaming laptop, but the feature set isn’t half bad. After all, it’s got a 1.1GHz Intel Pentium M processor, 512MB of DDR RAM, a 4 gig solid state drive, and built-in speakers. Connectivity is a breeze thanks to its love for all three flavours of 802.11 WiFi, as well as a trio of USB 2.0 ports. Best of all, the 8-inch LCD is a touchscreen.
