Dell’s ‘Project Ophelia’ might be my favorite gadget at CES

Ophelia allows you to convert almost any TV or computer monitor into a full-on computer. Simply plug it in, ensure you have a reliable Internet connection and watch as Google Android (version 4.1 “Jellybean”) boots up and gives you everything from web browsing to apps to keyboard and mouse support. All that computing muscle? It’s in the cloud. Ophelia is a pocketable gateway to your personal datacenter. With the pocketable, self-powered Ophelia, the cloud benefits remain the same: nothing of import is stored on the local device; it can be locked down by IT with a click, using software-as-a-service management; it’s cheap enough that leaving it in a hotel room wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world. (Face it, you’ve spent more at the bar.) Plug it into an available display, and access everything you were working on back at the office, wherever you are.
