Gnomic sent in this device that turns a TV into a simple, web configurable “Dashboard” – “YBox is a prototype/proof-of-concept for an ultra-cheap, always on, internet appliance that attaches to a standard TV set. The YBox is like Konfabulator for TV, turning TV into a platform for helpful, easy-to-read, live internet “channels”. It was Created for Yahoo’s first open “hack day”, Hackday 2006, where it took 2nd place.”Link.

Hmm, I hope they release the schematics/source when/it’s complete. Nice Altoids case!
