    -- Android may be an operating system designed for smartphones and tablets with touchscreen displays. But that hasn’t stopped people from loading it on a range of devices including laptops and TV boxes.

    This fall Google plans to release Android TV, which is a version of the operating system optimized for big screens. You’ll be able to easily use Android TV apps with a remote control from the comfort of your couch.

    But companies have been loading Android on TV boxes for a few years, giving you a way to stream videos from Netflix or YouTube, listen to music from Pandora, play games, or run the XBMC media center, among other things. It turns out that if you plug a keyboard and mouse into one of these boxes it’s actually pretty easy to use Android as a media center or general computing platform.

    Using an Android box without a keyboard and mouse can be a bit trickier… and that’s a problem many companies have tried to tackle by releasing remote controls designed to work with Android.
