Matchstick, the Firefox OS-based Chromecast competitor, launches on Kickstarter for $18

Matchstick wants to take on Chromecast with a dirt-cheap dongle that is more open than Google’s streaming stick, and promises developers more powerful hardware. Remember that Firefox OS-based streaming stick we first told you about in June ? It debuted on Kickstarter on Tuesday under the product name Matchstick , and it’s priced to pick a fight: The first 500 backers will get the device for merely $12, after which it will be available for $18.
