Ultra-Compact Form FactorUltra-compact form factor technology is starting a revolution. Humans have always loved technology that becomes more compact, yet smarter, more powerful and more flexible. This super-small technology is promising to make regular desktop computers, and even some laptops and portable devices, obsolete.

For starters, ultra-compact form factor computers are drastically decreasing the space businesses and homes need for their computing hardware.

Even better, they are tremendously powerful and configurable. Innovations like Shuttle’s NC01U and Intel’s NUC (Next Unit of Computing) provide adequate I/O and processing power, while also able to be equipped with keyboards, LCDs, touch screens, USB, RAM and flash memory. These kinds of ultra-compact machines can stand alone as powerful processors or be chained together for controlling complex systems. Therefore, they have tremendous application opportunities in corporate activities, industry, small businesses, and homes alike.
