A $40 cable box with a cheap satellite TV box, an old TV, and an old smartphone is a new deal for the majority of people who use their internet access to get online, according to a report from the New Scientist.
The device, which can be found for around $50 on Amazon, costs less than a new TV and can connect to a wide range of services.
But it has a price tag that could make the most people think twice before they go for a new cable box, according the report.
“There are two big advantages here,” said Ben White, a software engineer who created the device.
“One is that it’s cheap.
The other is it’s really fast.
It’s pretty quick to get up and running, it’s got a pretty good picture, and it’s super light.”
The new TV-box has a 720p resolution, a 3D-capable webcam, and is designed to work on the same network as your internet access, making it a viable alternative for those with slow internet speeds.
But White also says that it is still a bargain, and the TV-cube is already proving popular with many users who are looking for a cheap way to get a good picture and watch Netflix.
“People don’t think twice about getting a cheap box.
It does the job,” White said.
“And I think that’s one of the things people really love about it.”
“Cheap” means it can be used with a standard household internet connection and doesn’t require any special hardware.
The device uses a Raspberry Pi-powered computer to run the app-laden app that sits on top of the box, which is used to play games and do some basic online tasks.
White’s first order of business was to figure out how to make a cheap, yet powerful device for his family.
He decided to use an existing Roku box, a device that cost about $60.
“I wanted to make the device affordable,” White explained.
“I also wanted it to work with the internet, but I also wanted to build it to be super light and lightweight.”
I think I ended up with a product that I think could be used to watch movies and watch TV, as well as being able to do some other things.
“The Roku box was designed for the first-time users and I think it’s actually been pretty successful,” he added.
White’s family also bought the box for the purposes of keeping it as a backup for their internet-only internet connections.
“This is an example of the kind of thing that could be done with cheap hardware,” he said.
But there’s another type of device that can be built with a cheaper box, the article notes.
A smartphone-like device that will plug into a standard home internet connection, and will automatically connect to the internet if you leave it plugged in.
The phone-like TV-device can also be used as a standalone internet-enabled device for the same cost, as long as the phone is connected to the home network.
