CES 2013: Google TV with motion control


As expected, Asus has announced its innovative Qube Google TV device that already showed up in a bunch of leaks and an FCC filing.

Unfortunately, Asus will not host a press event for the Qube at CES 2013, but the company has released a brief press release taunting Qube's unique "Qube interface" which apparently displays functions by rotating on-screen cube shape, like we did not see that coming. This, of course, has not stopped those that were curious enough, so Anandtech managed to score a hands-on as well as some details and specs. The Marvell Armada 1500 platform is the heart of the Qube, two HDMI ports are on board, as well as Ethernet, WiFi and USB ports. It also features a full QWERTY remote with microphone for voice commands and gyro for motion control.

Qube will offer both motion control and voice search that integrates Google Play, Chrome, Youtube in one compact device as well as access to Netflix and Amazon Instant Video.

The advanced remote control supports motion sensing for gaming and other applications, while it will also be possible to control the Qube with the Mobile Remote app available for Android smartphones.

Asus will also throw in an extra 50GB of WebStorage cloud space with every Qube. All we need now is the official price and release date. Anandtech noted that the Qube could end up somewhere in the US $100-120 price range.
