Hook up Nvidia Shield to Wifi and stream PC games remotely

After serious issues with the PS Vita and the Nintendo DS sales are reportedly declining, it was not expected that Nvidia comes out with its own portable game console. Google Android based Shield or formally known as Project Shield was first showcased at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2013. This portable console runs on Google Android 4.2.1 (Jelly Bean) with a brand new NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor with 2 GB of RAM and a 720p display. In addition, a GPS chip and a mini-HDMI output with 4K video capability and  fully compatible with Google Play software.

While most Google Android devices function on touch screens and motion controls, Nvidia Shield has an integrated gamepad with two analog sticks.
