Project Shield May Just Push Handheld Gaming to New Levels...

Here is a pretty cool idea courtesy of the smart minds at NVIDIA.  The device pictured above is called Project Shield.
 
It's a hand held gaming system that utilizes a controller that feels and plays in a way similar to a PS3 or Xbox controller.  The difference, of course, is that the device also has an attached 720p retinal multi-touch display.  That's high def in your hands, folks.
 
To run games it sports the world's fastest mobile processor which is the custom 72 core NVIDIA GeForce GPU Quad-core A15 CPU.
 
It can connect to Wireless N Wifi speeds and the whole thing is running Android's latest OS called Jellybean which basically allows it to run anything in the Google Play store.  That means games and any other app you care to put on it.
 
Oh, and there is one other teeny thing you might want to be aware of.  You can also use the device to wirelessly access your GeForce GTX powered computer as well.  That means you can play PC games on the Project Shield handheld as well as accessing games on Steam.
 
This might be the kind of thing an ortho or pediatric office would setup for patients to play.  I can see some definite dental uses for this one.
