DEEQ DB01 the Chinese mini PC with craziest design

Today we stumbled on AliExpress with a mini PC called DEEQ DB01 with a unique cone-shaped design that certainly captures the attention.

In this cone the upper part is removable and is a speaker that works by Bluetooth in which we assume that also hides a battery that allows its autonomous operation. A strange idea with a questionable utility and the design we do not talk about because on tastes….. Its hardware is quite poor for its price, as it includes a 5th Generation Intel i7 processor, something totally outdated today that makes this mini PC remains only a freak curiosity.
