Acer unveiled an amazing new PC at IFA 2015 today, called the Revo Build.
It’s a modular computer that allows you to build your own computer by magnetically adding components. If you want to add a new hard disk, graphics card or other add-on, you just snap them on.

There are no cables and the device automatically recognizes the components as they’re added. At launch, there’s a core block containing the processor and memory, an audio block, power block and storage block.
Acer says it’ll release updated add-ons for the device for new graphics cards, Wi-Fi standards and more.
One of the add-ons is a portable battery block which can be used to charge your phone.
Acer said that it wants the Revo to “empower users” to build their own computer, without the hassle of learning how to wire one up.
Update: The Acer Revo Build M1-601 will be available across Europe, the Middle East and Africa in October with prices starting at $223 (€199), and in China in December with a starting price of $314 (¥1,999).
