The Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in Las Vegas has been big news for technology this week, the largest electronic show in the world is an ideal place for manufacturers and independent tinkerers to show off their newest gadgets.

Rumours have been circling around about a Steambox for some time but CES is where we actually saw not one, but many prototypes of what the hardware could eventually be. Through this a clear business model also emerged with Valve providing funding to external hardware companies to develop many versions of a small form factor PC.
