If you had any doubts about whether Google and the Internet would collectively join forces with traditional television, inventions such as the Vizio Co-Star Stream Player will certainly put those quandaries to rest.
The multitasking system turns your HD television into a device capable of not only flicking through channels to watch your favorite shows but also allowing for a seamless web-browsing experience -- without needing a computer.
Making use of the Google-TV platform, the device comes equipped with a Bluetooth-enabled universal remote that operates using a touchpad that is capable of operating Google Chrome, HTML and Flash content.
If you do, however, run into a situation where you would like to stream content from your smartphone or computer, the system is equipped with HDMI ports to easily connect the devices to the screen.
