Mozilla set to take on Google Chromecast

Mozilla is set to take on Google's Chromecast with their own device powered by Firefox OS. Details on the unannounced streaming stick have been leaked and a video of the UI has been made.

Chromecast is a little streaming stick that you can plug directly into the HDMI-port on your television. Then Android phones and tablets can be streaming to your TV through the Chromecast. Mozilla's secret new project will offer similar functionality, but will be running Firefox OS. Mozilla won't be making the hardware, instead they're working with an unnamed partner to make the device.

Check out the UI in action below:

Pretty cool that this device works with some Chromecast apps already.

Would you be interested in a streaming stick from Mozilla? Sound off below.

I'd like this if it also did screen mirroring and perhaps a fee other features that were cheap to implement.
