Dell’s “Project Ophelia” Is An MHL Stick That Can Turn A TV Into A Cloud Computer

Posted Jan 18, 2013

In the first half of this year, Dell will be releasing an Android-powered Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL) stick that can turn a TV or monitor into a computer when plugged in, currently being called “Project Ophelia.”  The stick connects to Dell’s Wyse cloud computing platform.  Ophelia is slightly larger than a USB thumb drive and it utilizes MHL’s connectivity for the power and data transfer.  The stick also uses Android 4.0 for web browsing, media playback, and access to Android apps.  After Ophelia gets connected to the computers, it can be used for Wyse thin clients and remote computing.  Ophelia even has Bluetooth built-in.
