Mini streamer

This streamer is only 3″ × 3″ tall (10cm x 10cm). A great sample of minimization and integration as ecodesign strategies.

Barely larger than a coaster, Roku 2 is the smallest streaming player ever—perfect for slipping neatly alongside any TV or entertainment center. It also has the smallest energy footprint, using less than 2 Watts when you’re watching a movie. That’s less power than a nightlight. 20 times less than a DVR. And 60 times less than a popular game console.

  • Steam 150,000 movies,
  • Runs games
  • View 500 channels
  • View sports on-demand
  • Let unlimited music from Pandora and MOG take you in new directions—or to the exact tune you’re looking for. From ShoutCast to your iTunes library, Rdio to radio from all around the world
  • Controlled by iOS or Android smartphones eo

Small is nicer, think of all the integration; Satellite receiver, game console, dvd-player, radio, dvd-recorder. Saving all the material.
