What Remote DOM tries to achieve

With devices such as Google Chromecast, Smart TVs and other web-capable and “smart” larger screen devices, it is time to leverage the full set of benefits such a device can offer directly from within your web application.

Why shouldn’t your web app be able to display additional, different content on an attached big screen? While this is possible using hybrid approaches, such as Cordova with plugins for iOS, we should try to create an open standard, so that functionalities, such as the second screen, become available for the web platform.
