Quick work thing. We’ve working with Chromecast for a little while.
Chromecast is basically a chrome browser on a stick that plugs into the back of your telly using the HDMI port and once connected to your wifi can be controlled by almost anything else on that network – phone, tablet, ‘puter.
It’s the sort of cheap, accessible tech that is really worth examining for opportunities – like the hacks we did with the Cooper-Hewitt – or this: Photowall for Chromecast.
It’s introduced in this video by m’colleagues George and Justin who first prototyped it and helped usher it into the world.
The SDK is out there – have at it.
