New Steam Machine Attaches To Back Of TV


Are we close to seeing more and more PC gaming taking place in the family room? If a new design from manufacturer Piixl is any indication, then it sure seems like it as the British manufacturing company has created a Steam machine that simply attaches to the back of your HDTV.

The SteamOS computer, which will work on TVs ranging in size from 32-inch to 70-inch, is even thin enough to fit behind a TV that is mounted on a wall.

Though optimized for Valve’s new SteamOS, the Jetpack computer will even be compatible with Microsoft Windows. It will be fully customizable according to Piixl, and will support Intel I7 Processors as well has high-quality Nvidia graphics cards.

Jetpack is expected to launch in early January with a price tag of about $1,000. The price tag may be high, but there is no denying that it’s an awesome time to be a gamer.
