Apple's Lightning Digital AV adapter will hook your iOS devices' lightning port to HDMI, and it's also hiding a tiny computer in the cable.

According to the guys at Panic Software, who broke open a Lightning Digital AV adapter, they found that Apple had a tiny ARM chip inside it.

Panic thinks the cable was made because the Lightning adapter doesn't have enough pins to handle raw HDMI period so Apple had to come up with a solution using Airplay. [Panic via The Next Web]
