The Future of the TV Remote

OK, first let me say that I'm no Google TV or Chromecast expert, so cut me a little technology slack on this one. I just set up our new Chromecast device and it's really got me thinking about the future of TV. Not the 5-7 year future, but the future as in 2014-15. And specifically what that near future might look like if someone were to build an inexpensive, dedicated TV remote built on top of Android that took advantage of Chromecast. 

For those who still aren't quite sure what Chromecast is, a simple way to think about it is that it's an easy way to connect your TV to your wifi network. It makes it really easy to view things on the Internet on your TV. The best applications so far are watching YouTube and Netflix videos on your TV.

Here's the key insight I have about the near-term future of TV and why Chromecast is important. It does away with the brain-dead software-based keyboards and other input devices you currently find with TV-connected devices like the Xbox, Wii, and even Tivo (which I happen to love, by the way). Instead, it moves the input job to an actual computing device like a laptop or a phone - something that is really good at receiving our typed or clicked - and increasingly our spoken - inputs. 

So imagine building a stripped-down Android device that it sold for $30 bucks that allowed you to really easily search for TV shows, stream YouTube, Amazon and Netflix videos, display your photos when people come to visit.

Heck, if it were cheap enough, maybe you'd even buy a set of them so that friends/family can engage with one another around what they're watching. Maybe a real-time participation in Jeopardy or other game shows? Friendly wagers on games or plays within games based on virtual currency or points? Snarky text comments on that stupid romantic comedy to just the one person in the room who actually appreciates your sense of humor? 

The point is, we may well reach a point where the TV gets really smart and figures out a way to share the interactions between people on one central screen. Yeah...maybe. 

Or we might instead have TV future where the interactions are more decentralized and personal via our phones and other mobile devices. Certain things might still be aggregated and then displayed on the main, shared large screen, but the rich interaction would be split up. 

That's where I think we're going and that's why I think Chromecast is so darned interesting. Or will be soon. Again, I'm no expert on this stuff. I just like to speculate.

Why not record everything, all the time?

Pretty soon, anyone will be able to cheaply and easily record audio, video and other things -- everything. All the time. http://goo.gl/prppgA

I’ll tell you why I think such technologies might do more good than harm at the end of this column. But first, let’s look at the shiny new gadgets:
