Building the Revo Build PC

Users can assemble their PCs by building off the main "block"—the M1-601 PC—and attaching other blocks that offer other features, from a portable hard drive and a wireless power bank to a voice block or graphics block.

The Main Building Block

The foundation of the Revo Build is the main PC, a 125mm by 125mm box that is powered by a Celeron or Pentium chip from Intel and which offers 8GB of DDR4 memory, an SD card slot, High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) port, a DisplayPort and three USB 3.0 ports.

Adding the Extras

The blocks are connected via pogo pins and magnetic coupling—essentially users can snap them in place, and they are good to go. They're also just as easy to swap out. For example, if users want more than the 32GB of storage the machine offers, they can connect a block that offers a 500GB or 1TB portable hard drive.
