This is a really great feature, that actually has the chance for universal adoption, if marketed and sold correctly.
The Chromecast is a simple HDMI stick, powered by USB, that it no more than 2 inches long, and allows the user to transmit whatever they’re experiencing on their device to their TV. This means Macs, Windows, iOS, Android, Chrome OS, and anything else that can tap into the Chrome browser to project whatever you want to watch.
Got a cool video on YouTube you want to show everyone in the room? Plug Chromecast into the TV’s HDMI port, jump into Chrome and hit the “Cast” button, and you’re immediately projecting, wirelessly. Also, it turns the device that the content originates from and turns it into a remote, so you can control the volume, queue content, and even shut off the TV.
Google’s asking price for the Chromecast on the Play Store? $35. That’s pretty cool.
