Android-based TV Stick Converts TVs into a "Family Communications Center"

Jan 07, 2014

An Android-based TV stick aimed at enabling families to communicate, share content, interact and play via the TV -- no matter where each individual may be located -- is to be launched at CES, Las Vegas.

The new HDMI TV stick called Bob -- and developed by Meet-Bob Ltd. -- is designed to provide families with intuitive and exciting interactive communication options. It turns any TV into a content and communications center, enabling family members to watch TV shows, movies or videos together; easily share favorite content and special moments with each other; keep-in-touch (using a web-cam) and play games with one another, even if they are on different sides of the world.

The Bob stick can be carried anywhere, making any TV part of the family network. It enables the delivery of content (live channels, VOD and games), the promotion of products and services, and micro-targeted campaigns directly to the family's TV. Moreover, with the Bob stick the user experience is fully personalized. Every family member has a personal login and is offered relevant features and content to fit their profile.
