Android Transporter on the Raspberry Pi

The Android Transporter which we have developed at E.S.R.Labs now also runs on the Raspberry Pi. It allows you to easily share and display the contents of an Android gadget wirelessly with a television set or a beamer.

The demo video shows how the Android Transporter turns your smartphone or tablet together with the Raspberry Pi into a powerful media hub to watch movies, play games, or do slideshows.
This way, the Raspberry Pi becomes the cheapest gaming console or set-top box :-).

The Android Transporter for the Raspberry Pi is based on my Android messaging and concurrency (a.k.a. Mindroid) C++ library. The source code of this library is available on GitHub.
