Been looking at Android TV boxes for someone, on Geekbuying site, and just noticed they've a link to this product;

Thought I'd post it here, for the Open Source and DIY fans who might be interested.

Some text from their website:
GeekBox – A leading product of Cross- Boxes, a Game Changer
Unlike Traditional TV box which turns the television into an intelligent platform like smart phones or tablet PCs, GeekBox will break this balance by not only fulfilling the aforementioned fundamental missions, but also opening an open-source project. GeekBox not simply a piece of hardware, but a DIY carrier, which carries all kinds of ideas and dreams from geeks. Opening a new era of box – an era of cross-box & open-source box with unfathomable capabilities.

Light as feather, Geekbox is portable enough for you to jam in the pocket and carry on the go. Delicate as diamond, Geekbox is coated by a streamlined outline and exquisite angular shell.

Pre-installed Android & Ubuntu Dual OS, a hot key switch Android & Ubuntu.You can also install Android–based Light Biz OS

Looks like it ships with a heatsink, but no fan. Not sure a passive heatsink will be enough for that beast, but at least it has a connector for a fan included.
