Orb BR turns your PS3/Blu-ray player into a 1080p streamer

Orb's attempt to undercut streaming media rivals like Sonos has resulted in the low-cost and high-functionality Orb Music MP-1 and its video-capable counterpart, and now the company is looking to Blu-ray players and the PS3 for the next attack. Orb BR is a $19.99 disc that turns a network-connected player into an Orb media source, controlled by one of the company's free iOS or Android remote apps and the Orb Caster PC/Mac software.
