Chrome on a stick – Google Chromecast
As everyone is trying to make the idiot box smarter by launching boxes and sticks with Operating systems and memory and processing power. Google has done it today just with simple, small yet powerful stick called “Chromecast” with just minimum of hardware specs. With Chromecast, you can stream your video and browser content to your TV screen and It can connect to almost every popular operating system available today including Android, iOS, Windows, Mac and its own big brother Chrome OS. And the best part, You don’t even need a remote. Just press a button on your main device and you will see the video or contents of your chrome browser on the Big screen in your home.
After the launch of its Chrome OS, Google has tried first time to expand the platform to other devices. It will connect to all the UPnP services like Airplay, Miracast and DLNA over the Wifi network of your home. The main plus point is, You can turn any of your device in to a controller of the Chromecast. You don’t need a separate remote like you need with Apple TV, Roku or Other devices which promise to make your TV viewing experience SMART. And you can even do other things on your serving device or you can put it to sleep and your video will keep playing on. No one even need to see which device you have, Its so tiny that you will not even notice that you have an additional device connected to your home HD TV. Just a small dongle which connects to your TV’s HDMI port. Which can be powered by a small cable connecting it the USB on the TV for power it needs.
