NVIDIA Shield is a cool new device that lets you wirelessly play your existing PC games on a handheld device. Linus Tech Tips shows us how to make your own version with an Android phone and an Xbox 360 controller.
The NVIDIA Shield wirelessly streams your games from your computer to the Shield, but Linus and Slick use Splashtop Remote Desktop and an Xbox 360 controller to stream the game, and a little bit of DIY to create a cheap Shield clone. Apparently it works fairly well.
Is this something you’d want to use all the time? Probably not, but it might help you decide whether you actually want something like the superior Shield, or to play your games while you save up to by one. Still, despite its downsides, it’s a pretty cleverly built clone, and the video is worth a watch. Check it out above for more info.
