    -- Think Google’s $35 Chromecast is too expensive… or that the ecosystem isn’t open enough? Matchstick have developed their own TV stick which will sell for $25 when it goes on sale in February, 2015.

    The Matchstick runs Firefox OS, allows you to fling content from a phone or PC to a TV, and supports many Chromecast-compatible apps out of the box.

    There’s already a working prototype, but the Matchstick team hopes to raise $100,000 through a Kickstarter campaign to ramp up production… and early backers can reserve a Matchstick device for as little as $12.

    We got a first look at an early prototype in June, but now the team is providing more details, trying to build a developer community, and trying to raise funds.

    Folks who pledge $24 or more for a developer unit should get an early build of the Matchstick in November. Folks who pledge at lower levels should get theirs in February. App developers can also apply to get one of 250 free developer units.
