Imagine having a fully-functional Lego-sized data center on your desk. Sounds pretty cool?

A startup founded by identity researcher Dick Hardt launched a Kickstarter project that does just that.

The “desktop container computer” runs Docker containers which are local virtual machines that developers can install on any server. Because they are local, it significantly reduces upload time. Plus they are reusable, which extends the fun.

The specs are what you’d expect, except for the look: A realistic die-cast “shipping container with functioning doors” that would fit right into the Lego Movie without drawing attention.
