Plair: A Dongle For Streaming Videos From Your Phone To TV

There’s no great way to watch a YouTube clip with other people. You know what I mean. Someone has this hilarious video that you just have to see. So you awkwardly crowd around a computer, neck strained, anxious to know when you’re supposed to laugh. Worse still, the clip is on someone’s phone, so you’re sharing a four-inch screen along with the olfactory leftovers of whatever your friend ate for lunch.

Plair is a new app-cessory that aims to fix the problem of sharing digital media with friends. Crafted by NewDealDesign, Plair is a Wi-Fi-enabled USB dongle that can connect any smartphone to any television (that has a USB port). Through an iOS or Android app (or a web-based portal on a laptop), users can share photos and videos stored on their phones or in the cloud (including YouTube, College Humor clips, CNN, and Vimeo).
