Mele shows the first Allwinner A31 Quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 based Android TV Set-top-box, they have also designed a Windows 8 like UI on top of Android, they have designed one of the market’s best RF remote controls with a keyboard on one side and a remote control on the other side with microphone and speaker for using the remote as a phone, built-in accelerometers, gyroscope, also showing their box off running some advanced games on the Allwinner A31’s SGX544 GPU.

Mele shows some of their Skype Video-conferencing Camera modules that work with their latest Allwinner A20, A31 based set-top-boxes, with either built-in camera connected on the set-top-box, or with a cable on the top of the TV, or a design for the Set-top-box actually built in to the larger camera to mount on the top of the TV. I am not sure about the status and possibility of doing 720p or even 1080p Video-conferencing on Skype on Android Set-top-boxes, I guess that support is up to the Skype Android app (which Microsoft controls), but I guess there are other Android Video-conferencing apps that support 720p and 1080p video-conferencing already and which should work with this system. HD video-conferencing is awesome, and this may be a way to have that work for around $150 retail price on each side.
