Maybe I'm derping but how dose this thing connect to anything? Is there a device that connects to it that has all the plugs?

With bluetooth, your connection options are pretty open. With only 64G storage, if using as HTPC you would probably need an external drive connected to one of the miniusb ports. It's got WiFi, so not sure what else you would need to connect.

I'm leaning more toward vehicle applications somehow...

would like one of these to connect to a single eye display and finally live my dream of having a real life scouter like what they have on DBZ. - "Over 9000?!"

I work in IT and I'm trying to find a way to justify this purchase because I want one.....

The premise is great, a portable computer you can stick in your pocket and go with. It's pretty awesome in my opinion all you really need is a computer with an HDMI slot to plug this in.
I get the feeling though that as a "thumbdrive" type of device. It will get left in a computer and never thought of again, till you need it. I would love to with one of these though, it's a very nice concept. Can't wait to buy a computer like this and load my own OS on it.

I don't think this is getting plugged into a PC it is the PC. You would connect monitor/TV, keyboard, etc to it. I'm thinking mini HTPC, mounted to the back of TV.

Sorry, that's what I meant. My mind was out in another area.

200 bucks versus a 25 for the raspberry pi? Quite the difference here. I understand this one has a few more features and comes preloaded, but thats pretty steep i think.

Completely different hardware.

Raspberry Pi has a 700MHz single-core ARM6, with up to 256MB RAM, and onboard fast ethernet on the $35 version

Cotton Candy has a 1GHz quad-core ARM7 with 1GB RAM, onboard wi-fi N and bluetooth.

The cotton candy also has a slightly more capable graphics processor.

I would imagine a computer like this would be phenominal for research applications where size and weight play major factors. Has anyone told Nasa yet?
