The ASUS thing

Update: Detta123 has pointed out in the comments that this is likely just an optical drive. Hopes dashed.

And we have no idea what it might be. Could it be the ASUS Qube?  Or a high-end Chromebook? Or something less exciting for Google fans, like a router?

ASUS is giving no hints. We'll know tomorrow, but fill the comments with your best guesses.

ASUS teasing something square and shiny

32 Comments

Yup. You guys; don't thank me. You can thank Google Image Search! :) Just uploaded the image and added ASUS. It found the image quickly. lol

Plus, I don't think ASUS would be teasing the device in this manor for something that is already listed on their site.

The thing pictured above looks to have feet though, which the Varidrive doesn't have. Another inconsistency with the two objects: This thing appears to be standing straight upright, which the Varidrive does not do (it leans back when in the upward position.)

This is obviously a cube for google tv or even a gaming console like the ouya?

If you look closely there are little rubber feet on the bottom of it so it doesn't slide off whatever surface so it's got to be a cube facing it from the front.

EDIT:Or it can be what the guy above be said right before he ninja posted me lol.

Hopefully is a console running jelly bean which could still beat Ouya to the punch. But, do we even know if it has android?

Maybe it's one of them new fangled record players I've been hearing so much about. I hear this one plays in 78 rpms! Yes siree, that's technology!
