How would you like to see what you have on your Android tablet or smartphone mirrored onto a television screen? Cyanogen developer Koushik Dutta, who designed the favored AllCast app, knows how to hack the Google Chromecast, and mirror to the television set what is on your Android device.
Lag time in the video that Dutta posted, and Google’s lack of support for this idea, are two reasons we will have to wait. Also cited is that it lacks depth for apps to utilize Dutta’s brainy idea.
Still, Google could, by adding a protocol to facilitate Chromecast firmware, have the capability to do screen mirroring, yet, it would still be technically too slow. The whole idea is just not ready for prime time yet.
