When we think about Google‘s Android OS, traditional home PCs are probably the last item in that thought process. San Mateo,California-based ZeroDesktop, Inc. (headed up by eMachines co-founder Young Song) are out to alter our perceptions of what a family computer can be with the $99 MiiPC, which reached its$50,000 Kickstarter goal in less than 24 hours.
The MiiPC (pronounced “Mee PC”) is targeted at parents who wish to go beyond merely blocking certain websites and online activities, and tackle the addictive nature of the internet.
MiiPC’s free companion app for iOS and Android ties everything together, offering parents real-time monitoring of their child’s activity on the computer. But the app has a suite of comprehensive features extending beyond what we’re used to with, for example, the Xbox 360.
