Smart TV by Equiso
Turn any TV into a Smart TV.
Yes I really said that. The guys at EQUISO have developed a thumb drive size device that will allow you to plug into the HDMI port on your television and turn it into a android driven TV.
The Equiso System comes with a unique remote that allows you to control you TV like a wii remote. But is way more than a we remote. This sweet remote has a keyboard on the back of it. This allows you to use your TV truly as a SMART TV.
What is a Smart TV? as defined by Wikipedia: Smart TV, which is also sometimes referred to as “Connected TV” or “Hybrid TV“, is the phrase used to describe the current trend of integration of the internet and Web 2.0 features into modern television sets and set-top boxes, as well as the technological convergence between computers and these television sets / set-top boxes.
Smart TV’s are quite expensive, now with the Equiso Smart TV you can turn any TV into a smart TV.
I was able to play with the prototype this past week. I put it to the test with my kids. My son who is 11 took to it like a duck in water. He plugged it in and instantly start scrolling around. They had angry birds in space in stalled and he started playing that. With the Equiso Smart TV remote he was able to play even angry birds with no problem.
He thought it was pretty awesome how you could just point the remote at the Equiso Smart TV and it worked like a wii remote.
Right now it is on Kickstart, they are raising their initial funding. It has been out for a week now and it is gaining some serious traction!
Be one of the first to get one of these awesome products! Designed by a Harvard Student I can see this Smart tv becoming a hit with his friends all over campus and all college campuses around the world.
