Android Central 245: All Things Virtual


Thanks for taking my question about screencasting in the nexus 6! I'll see if I can set up a Chromecast this weekend.

Not sure if it will work on Chromecast but I tried connecting my iPhone to an Apple TV by using an old router not connected to a phone line. This worked perfectly and let me take my Apple TV where there is no internet connection. Of course this is not necessary now as Apple TV allows you to connect without an internet connection. I hadn't realised that miracast and slimport didn't work now in lollipop and will try them when I get chance in my Nexus 5.

I think one of the coolest applications for Vive outside of gaming is educational and experiential. I have four boys and I can't wait for them to be able to explore places like the Taj Mahal, the ocean floor, the moon, the inside of a human cell, etc. I don't think, even a year from now, that you are going to have to be a niche gamer to get really into this.
