So Google just announced this new ting and device that essentially allows the streaming of any web content to a TV supposedly easily that you control with apps or a chrome browser.

 

https://developers.google.com/cast/

 

Kind of interesting, and with Plex/Web it did make me wonder about using this with plex web to get content to TV screens. From the sounds of it you'd need to add support into the various Plex clients (Plex/web for web and the various mobile clients). That would pretty cool if that worked I think, especially if their 35$ dongle actually worked well enough.
