Remember Borg Cube from Star Trek? This is how the design was replicated to house a computer.

Looks sick, right?

It might try to absorb your humanity into it’s collective mind. The “Borg CubeVR” gaming PC shown in the image will measure just 12 inches (30.5cm) on a side, and a smaller Borg Cube targeted at media centers will be half the size at 6″ x 6″ x 6″.

Surprisingly, they also tell us what you’re seeing isn’t just a plastic shell around a metal frame — they claim to have created an interlocking design where the walls themselves can act as the structure of the chassis.

The Borg Cube comes in two sizes — Borg Cube and Borg CubeVR

 

Prices start at $599 (roughly £460 or AU$755 or ₹38k) for the entry-level model with a Core i3 processor, 8GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD, and it sounds like the sky’s the limit for the Borg CubeVR, which will feature up to 2 GPUs, a water-cooled 22-core Xeon processor, 64GB of RAM and room for six SSDs.
