“Nexus Q combines the power of Android and Google Play to easily stream music and video in your home—all controlled by an Android phone or tablet”

It plugs to any TV or speaker and streams from the cloud and therefore allows other to join in. It’s the ‘first-ever social streaming device’ and allows anyone (with one of the 400 million Android devices) to stream content to the TV set. Making the TV a little more social again.
