Imagine being about to Facebook, Tweet and Skype from your TV: commenting on favourite shows like Breaking Bad and Downton Abbey with your friends in real time, as they air. Why distract yourself with a second screen device (like your phone or a tablet) when you can do everything you want to do on your TV screen? 

This modest looking device has been described by testers as ‘surprisingly small’. It’s no bigger than a flash stick and can boast about being the world’s smallest Google TV Player. It weighs a tiny 150g and despite its modest appearance is one of the fastest Google TV players in the world.  

 

The device comes with a full web browser and 2GB of memory

 

How does it work with your TV? 

The device plugs into the USB port on your TV or if your TV doesn’t have a USB port then you can connect it via the cable and mains adapter. This also acts as the power supply. The dongle comes with a full web browser and 2GB of memory

The device can output video to TV via HDMI to a HDMI port. This is just one feature which makes it incredibly easy to use.  Reviews also describe the device as sturdy and well-built so you don’t have to worry about wear and tear. 

There is another USB port for the keyboard/mouse connection. You can also connect a 2.4 GHz wireless mouse and keyboard to the device, although these have to be purchased separately and you can do so through the Visopix website.
