The teeny tiny DIY YBox2 Mini Computer Kit is small enough to cram into a very small space indeed. Sure it won’t fit in the space between your teeth, or inside the eye of a needle, but a mint tin is still pretty darn small. And hey, it’s a proper computer too, complete with an Ethernet port, video out, infrared controller sensor and a likkle speaker.

You’ll probably need very nimble fingers and a beardy electronics degree to assemble the thing, but think of the fun you’ll have telling the neighbours you’ve just spent a couple of hours building your own computer. They’ll be like, whoa…and…like, dude! $74.99. Here’s some more useful stuff for you too.

 The built-in program loader lets you upload new code over the network without special cables or tools. If you aren’t already familiar with the Propeller, it’s a unique multiprocessor programmable in a built-in high-level language called Spin as well as assembly language. Each of its eight cores can access common memory and an array of I/O pins that can be configured to talk to almost anything.
