Of all the trade shows I'd like to attend but never have, Computex has to top the list. This is where you see practical product approaches thrown out the window and novelty items like gold-plated keyboards sitting around the exhibit hall. Computex may be one of the last places in the industry where innovation in hardware design is freely explored.

This clip is a case in point: a massive chassis from Foxconn Technology Group that looks like it's trying to be the Cadillac of IT hardware. Don't expect to see this hitting the enterprise anytime soon, but you've got to love a company that turns the conventional wisdom about ever-smaller form factors on its head, boldly declaring that big is still occasionally beautiful. Proof that Computex's role as an OEM brainstorming session is alive and well.
