Last week Koushik Dutta, one of the masterminds behind Cyanogen Inc and many other useful apps, showed off his work screen casting Android to his AppleTV via the Mirror app, and hinted that something similar could be in the pipeline for Chromecast.

Fast forward less than a week and Koush is already showing off his latest accomplishment – screen casting Android to a Chromecast appears to be working pretty well, albeit with some forgivable latency. He’s published a short video on Google+ as a little sample, but if you’re sick of seeing flappy bird, you might want to look away.

Koush’s has already done some great work on wireless Android connectivity with AllCast, which lets users send photos, music, and video from their Android device to their Chromecast and other wireless TV connected devices, but being able to wirelessly push a full Android experience to a TV is clearly even better.

Unfortunately there’s no word on when Koush will be sharing this breakthrough with the rest of us, but I’m hoping that some sort of beta app isn’t too far away.
