Ouya Console Will Supposedly Be ‘The Size Of A Rubik’s Cube’
The excitement building about the proposed Ouya console is probably a little overblown. It’s a really, really cool idea but it hasn’t even been made yet. Still, as details continue to trickle out about Ouya, we remain impressed, in theory, any way.
The latest interesting tidbit comes courtesy of Kotaku, who had a Q&A with Quya maker Fuseproject’s Yves Béhar. Béhar spoke at length about the device, revealing something I personally didn’t expect: it’s going to be really small. “Our console is quite small,” he said, ‘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”. You had me at I can fit that in a pocket, but more interesting is that despite that tiny size, it’s supposed to come with an Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core ARM processor, 1GB of memory, 8 GB of flash storage, plus 2 USB ports. Damn son.
He also discussed some of the other features, for instance the touch pad installed on the controller designed to “enable many of the interactions we have become accustomed to on mobile.” The whole Q&A ia worth a read, and you can do so here.
