Acer unveils NVIDIA Ion based Wii clone

Posted on Thursday, February 26 2009 @ 17:07:28 CET by

Last year ASUS showed off a concept of Wii-like motion-sensing controls for the Eee PC, and it looks like one of the first NVIDIA Ion based systems from Acer may also mimic Nintendo's popular console. Donanim Haber published some slides of the Acer Hornet, a Ion-based system designed for use in the studio and in the living room.

The Acer Hornet has a stylish blue design, which can be attached to the VESA mount on the back of a LCD display. Alternatively, the system can be used in the living room for 1080p HD entertainment and games. Some of the slides show off a motion-sensing device, which can be used as media controller, air mouse, and game controller.

Little details are know about the Hornet, except that it will have a HDMI port and that the price will be just a couple hundred dollars.

P.S.: If the image of those boys and girls in the living room looks familar it's because it was stolen from Nintendo's ad campaign for the Wii.
