If there is ever a company to out-do these days, it’s probably Apple. Rumors are floating that the Mac Mini will be reissued as a Home Media box, but it looks like a Stockholm company hopes to step in the ring with ‘em. The Kaspel Home Media Center is reminiscent of Mork and Mindy (if you are old enough to remember it – I barely am) like chairs in design, and runs Windows Home Media Center software. The box will utilize the Intel Viiv platform, sport dual processors, quick turn on functionality, “easy remote controlled configuration of network systems, media server “engine” that reformats digital content files to be viewed on other devices in the home, high definition, 7.1 surround sound, and the ability to play high definition video formats, among other features.? The Kaspel, designed by award winning Propeller of Sweden, is crafted to run silently, and is subtle enough (27 x 23 x 10 cm) to slip into any living room environment either unnoticed or admired.

The Kapsel will go into production sometime in 2006, no word on price and availability.
