It had a web browser, but that was it. But the phone was used as a mouse and keyboard.
The challenge to second "attached" screen is really just lag since Chromecast is a separate device.
Koush's Mirror app I believe uses both OS hooks and hardware assistance to get the screen compressed and sent over.
This sounds like a "second screen" Mirror type app, leaving the keyboard/control on the primary screen.
I like the concept.
Now that I can't figure out how to load a web page in Vbukit, I would also be happy with just being able to launch a browser on Chromecast and control it from phone/tablet, similar to your friend's Droid Razr Maxx.
