Make your TV smart
But these methods had their own limitations. It’s all well and good connecting the computer to the TV, but how would you use it? Sitting next to the computer, and consequently the TV screen, doesn’t make sense. The only option was to buy a separate wireless mouse and keyboard. For many, this was too convoluted—first check that the computer has the right video drivers, then connect the computer to the TV, connect the wireless receiver to the computer, and so on.
Woxi Media has sought to render this whole process much easier—by bypassing the computer entirely and providing PC functionality to the TV itself. Its SmartPod for TV is a small box that connects directly to the TV—through the AV or HDMI ports—and instantly allows you to do almost everything you would do on the internet via a computer. Loaded with Android 2.3, the SmartPod comes with the Chrome browser and the YouTube app pre-installed.
Apart from that, it also has Google’s app store, Play, installed. Like its version on any Android phone or tablet, this version of Play allows you to download any app, ranging from Facebook and Twitter to news apps
