If you are on the lookout for a tiny, low-power box which will be able to function as a media center PC, then perhaps it might make sense to invest some of your money into this Indiegogo project that is known as the Ezeecube. The Ezeecube happens to be able to play back videos on your TV while doubling up as a media hub of sorts, as it backs up and shares your smartphone’s videos and photos.

Sporting up to 1TB of internal storage space, the Ezeecube will be able to perform media backups from your Android- or iOS-powered device. Underneath the hood of the Ezeecube would be an embedded Linux operating system alongside XBMC media center software that will do its bit to display content on a TV.

Apart from that, this modular machine makes future upgrades a snap, whether you are adding more storage or trying to introduce additional features. Unfortunately, the Ezeecube has not been realized just yet, since it remains an Indiegogo project that will require at least $75,000 by the time July 4th rolls around. Theoretically speaking, it ought to arrive with a dual-core Freescale i.MX6 ARM Cortex-A9 processor, 1GB RAM, 4GB of internal memory, and a 1TB hard drive. Other hardware specifications will include HDMI connectivity, WiFi and Bluetooth 3.0 support, an SDXC memory card slot, USB 2.0, and a micro USB OTG port. The listed price for the Ezeecube stands at $299, although early backers of the Indiegogo campaign can place an order for one for pledges that begin from $179 to $249.
