Startup hopes to bring Android 4.0 to otherwise dumb TVs

Written by Peter Scott



ICS on a USB stick


A startup is trying to secure funding for an interesting approach to the smart TV conundrum.

The Equiso Smart TV is basically a USB stick with a 1GHz ARM Cortex SoC, 512MB of memory, 8GB of storage and Mali 400 graphics. Not exactly state of the art in this day and age, but at least it runs Android Ice Cream Sandwich.

The device is powered through the TV’s USB port and it has 802.11n wireless and HDMI 1.4 on board. A micro USB port is also on board and the device supports external hard drives, keyboards and mice.

However, that’s not all. It also ships with an interactive remote, with a full physical keyboard, as well as accelerometer and gyro sensors for some light gaming.

The outfit is hoping to raise $100,000 on Kickstarter to get the project rolling and it is looking for $99 and $69 pledges.
