You can stream an object (string, string[], Stream and byte[] types are accepted all other types will cause an error) to client's browser by using the Out-Download cmdlet now.

Out-Download -InputObject <Object> [-ContentType <string>] [-Name <string>]

-InputObject - object (string) to be streamed to the client
-ContentType - the Content-Type header value. "application/octet-stream" used if not provided.
-Name - name under which the content will be downloaded


Get-Item master:\content\home | 
    ConvertTo-Json -Depth 1 | 
    Out-String | 
    Out-Download -Name "home-item.json"

Byte[] streaming from media item:

Get-Content -path 'master:\media library\Default Website\sc_logo' -encoding byte -raw | 
    Out-Download -Name "sc_logo.png"

Streaming from disk drive:

[System.IO.File]::Open("C:\tmp\EvilLaugh.jpg", [System.IO.FileMode]::Open) | 
    Out-Download -Name "evil.jpg"
