This Impressive Kickstarter Project Turns Your TV Into An Android Tablet

Chances are your TV at home has a free HDMI port or two. Pocket TV is aiming to to change that.

Pocket TV is a fully functioning micro-computer, roughly the size of your thumb. It runs the latest version of Android (Ice Cream Sandwich), much like today’s latest smartphones, and essentially turns your TV into an Android tablet.

The Kickstarter project has already raised about $83,000 out of its $100,000 goal. With 33 days left, it seems like Pocket TV will happen.

Here’s how it works:

Just plug Pocket TV into your set’s HDMI port and you’ll have access to all of Android’s apps, games, social networks, etc. 

This is certainly an option for someone who doesn’t want to buy one of those new web-powered “smart TVs.”
