The Intel Compute Stick – Turn your TV into a Windows Computer – IoT

Intel Compute Stick Header

The Intel Compute Stick turns your TV into a Windows 8.1 Computer.  This little computer is like a desktop computer the size of a flash drive that plugs into your TV with a full size HDMI port.  This is the perfect device to provide a full Windows desktop experience to any room in your house with a TV or HDMI monitor.  The Intel Compute Stick has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and even has a micro SD card slot for expandability.  Add a wireless bluetooth Keyboard and a wireless bluetooth mouse and you have a low cost miniature size full fledged windows 8.1 computer.   You can also  use your Smart phone or tablet as the input device via Wifi.  Highly portable and secure.  It has a power switch and is powered by a micro USB 2.0 port.  I was thinking this would be a really cool way to provide my Mom with a computer that is so small that she does not need to find space to store it or move from the room with the TV to get on the computer.
