With New Kylo Browser Convergence is Another Step Closer

Kylo is being offered as a free download by Hillcrest, the maker of the “Loop pointer,” a clever “in-air” mouse. After downloading Kylo and connecting my Mac to my TV over the weekend, I was quickly navigating Kylo with a Loop. Taken together, Kylo and the Loop deliver an inexpensive, yet high-impact online video/TV convergence experience.
