Google Chromebox

Google ChromeboxBeen trying to figure out just what you’d do with a Chromebox? Google has an idea: build a new video conferencing system. At least that’s what Google VP of product management Ceaser Sengupta announced in Mountain View this morning. It’s called Chromebox for meetings and, well, it’s a Chromebox bundle designed to outfit meeting rooms with a robust, easy to use meeting solution powered by the Google Cloud.

Plug the setup into your existing conference room monitors, log into the Google management platform, and you’re ready to go. How about in use? Well, that looks like a mash up between Google Hangouts and Chromecast.
