The very idea of an always on PC the size of a plug opens up vast possibilities. The SheevaPlug runs at an average of 5watts which is much less than the usual servers and house hold computers. It connects to an ordinary network and has a USB input to incorporate the usual peripherals such as cameras, external hard disk drives etc…

From what i could see this only comes with a type ‘A’ plug (American Standard) but i am sure there is a way of converting it to work in the UK. There is an open source API framework named RainDrop which from the text on the site ‘makes it effortless to deploy third-party applications onto the SheevaPlug securely and in a resource-defined manner.’

The SheevaPlug would be very useful when working with home automation and security.
