Looks like the folks from Myriad are cooking something up to show off fully at CES. The makers of the Myriad Dalvik Cache that allows Android apps to run such things a iOS and MeeGo have now taken the covers off their next venture.
The Myriad Alien Vue is a system that allows TV and set-top box manufacturers to bring Android and HTML5 apps to their existing products with no decrease in performance. By offering OEMS this functionality along with a branded app store, Myriad is hoping manufactuers will be enticed to integrate their services to offer end users a better overall experience. The concept is interesting and it looks rather nice but adoption is a key thing here -- if manufactuers don't adopt the technology then it really isn't all that useful to anyone.
Either way, we're not really seeing a slow down in the efforts of folks looking to win the war of the living room but it's a fun battle to watch and we'll be keeping our eye on all the action. Jump on past the break for a quick look at Myriad Alien Vue in action and expect more when CES kicks off.
