Someone with a calendar to hand tell me if it’s been a week since Google’s magical streaming device Chromecast was released. It hasn’t? Fantastic.
Yes, despite the Chromecast having been available for less than a week, devilish developers across the internet have been hacking on the $35 HDMI stick faster than a team of Cyanogen Modders locked up in a Jelly Bean factory.
Of the more fanciful my money goes to this: a gameboy emulator app running natively on the Chromecast, with game controls being sent from a PC or laptop keyboard. The developer behind the hack says there is virtually no lag between entering a control on a keyboard and seeing it received on-screen.
Intrigued? You can find out more about the hack at the following Github page:
