The ChromeCast is a popular video streaming device made by Google which plugs into your television and allows you to watch content from various sources such as YouTube and on demand tv providers. A startup called DRZ Creation has a great new Kickstarter project that gives the ChromeCast a great new use.
The JayDrone shown above is a small ChromeCast audio adapter that seamlessly plugs onto to the HDMI adapter and allows for audio to be outputted from the ChromeCast to the standard headphone socket. Audio outputted through the 3.5mm audio jack can be listened to through headphones or devices like amplifiers and speakers anywhere where the ChromeCast can be connected to a WiFi network and also connected to a USB power source such as a laptop or even a portable USB charger.
This use seems strange but as ChromeCast is fully controlled on smartphones, tablets and computers with no onscreen navigation this should work well and will be great for listening to music on YouTube. This device will also work with any other ChromeCast compatible app that can stream audio like Google Play Music, Pandora and Deezer.
JayDrone has nearly reached $6,000 at the time of writing this plenty over its $500 goal it previously had another campaign that did not reach its goal and started a new campaign to raise more money to bring the device to market. To back this campaign visit this kickstarter page, for $17/£11 you can get your hands on one of these devices.
