The Android-powered Ouya console that took the Internet by storm just weeks ago may be more space efficient than any other console we know of. In a recent Q&A session, designer Yves Béhar said that the Ouya should only be about the size of a Rubik's Cube, meaning 2.2 inches across.
Portability is key here, though Béhar realizes that with the compact size comes added hardware issues. This petite console is expected to run on the Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core ARM processor and 1GB memory with another 8GB in flash storage.
"Our console is quite small, around the size of a Rubik's cube, and so it will easily fit anywhere in a room, or be easy to throw in a backpack.
"We intend to give the Tegra chipset room to breathe, as obviously it does get warm. Airflow is important here."
Of course, any images we have now for the Ouya are merely concept. The console is still in development, and no final design has been decided upon. Its first exclusive is going to be a prequel to Human Element, released episodically in 2015.
