I think it looks pretty cool. The video showed shadow gun running on it. If only they could get the price down to about $50.

If it can run jelly bean, then it can run every other game jelly bean can run.

It's at more than $116,000 for only 2 days. They needed $100,000 so the project is funded.

IDK. Does anyone else think this is a little over ambitious? That level of gaming just from a USB stick in your TV? That is what this is, yes? Plug a USB stick into your TV and access/play games.

I'm all for anything that provides more games, I just dunno how this is going to work.

You can play games on your smartphone, but it has a screen and a battery taking up size. Reduce a smartphone just to the processing components and storage and it probably is the size of a USB stick.

Fine, but that is still pretty limited. Some of those games, especially the FPSs, look like they were well beyond any kind of mobile (phone, not dedicated handheld)) device/USB stick.

(Note: not an expert, just curious how good this would be on a TV @ 1920x1080 or even 1280x720 and a reasonable framerate)

So, instead of "Damn it, I lost the frickin!' controller" it will be "Damn it, I lost the frickin' console!" :D
