Beam Your Laptop to Your TV With Veebeam

Veebeam does not do anything new. There are a variety of ways to get content from your computer to your TV. But the Veebeam does it easily. Web? Games? Movies? Hulu? With a Wireless USB dongle and receiver, you're set.

By plugging the $99 Veebeam's antenna into your computer's USB port, whatever is on your screen is shot over to your TV via composite or HDMI-connected receiver. Simply as that. No cords and no software. The cleverness here is that you don't need to worry about the permission of content providers to watch whatever online content you want on your TV. Hulu? Bring it on. ABC streaming episodes? Sure. If you can play it on your laptop or view it in your browser, it's all gravy.

Wireless USB, which powers the Veebeam, uses Ultra-WideBand technology, which, for our purposes, means those scenes from Mad Men get streamed smoothly (and in HD, if you're willing to pay an extra $40). If you don't feel like waiting around for AirPlay (or don't have any Apple devices to use it with), this might simplify your couch vegetation habits.
