This has been mentioned in a Chromecast thread but could well do with a thread of its own. The Indiegogo funding has about two days to run and is only USD30k short of the $1 million milestone where the devs say they will include Android and iOS apps. It remains to be seen how they will implement that but this is rapidly becoming a likely good Chromecast competitor, albeit at over twice the price. At the rate the $$ are accumulating, it is likely to get to the $1m.

(Edit: Not sure how my first use of the word Chromecast became a link - I didn't make it like that. Shows as a link on my laptop but not on iPad.)

Chromecast likely gets autolinked by Geekzone to an affiliate purchase so GZ gets some cash. Personally I absolutely loathe those types of ad scripts, but it's not my site so them's the breaks.

That said, Airtame looks pretty good. Seems this year is the year of cool innovative gadgets!

Airtame sailed through its $1 million milestone - now at $1.15m. Has 15 hours still to run for those who may interested.

I'm a bit surprised that this has not generated more interest on gz because it seems to have great potential and could be a Chromecast killer. Also seems to be better than Miracast.
