4K and Android 7.0 Nougat
If for something Remix IO highlights is because not excessively expensive, but it still includes some features that stand out a lot for such an inexpensive device. One of them is that it is capable of reproducing content in 4K. Yes, priced at as little as $ 99 it is possible to get the Remix IO to reproduce the contents in 4K and run all supported applications in that resolution. Those with the highest quality television will certainly love that.
And it’s not the only thing to keep in mind, in addition to the above, too has Android 7.0 Nougat as the operating system, so it is completely updated and with the most recent functions of the Google operating system for tablets, mobiles, televisions, and devices that turn your “TV” into a Smart TV.
A computer, a TV, a console … Remix IO
But what is Remix IO? It is not just a rival to the Apple TV, it is much more than that. The idea was to launch a device that was at the same time a smart TV, a computer, and even a game console. We have already talked about the possibilities it has to be able to reproduce 4K, but in addition to this, it also includes a Moto TV special with which we can have an interface adapted to any television very much in the style of the platforms that are already available for them, and with which we can navigate through multimedia content apps. Netflix, Google Play Movies, etc.
It can be used as computer thanks to the ports HDMI for high quality monitors, and also VGA port for projectors and older monitors. All with two USB ports and up to a Ethernet connector for a high speed connection. Of course, we can connect a keyboard and a mouse to use a word processor or some similar application. Let us bear in mind that the Remix IO has Remix OS as an operating system, which is the adaptation of Android 7.0 Nougat created by Jide for computers, so the interface is designed to be used with these peripherals.
Of course, its use as a game console is obvious, being able to run any game for Android, view it on a large screen, play it from an external controller to which we can assign the functions that we want thanks to the option Game Toolkit with which this device arrives.
If you want to buy this Remix IO, all you need is pay 99 dollars in Kickstarter. Shipments will begin in March of next year, and for about $ 170 you will get two devices of this type, so you only have to find an interested friend or use the comments in this post to locate someone who wants it and get it for a little less money.
