LAS VEGAS -- Showcased at CES 2014, the Snakebyte Vyper platform enables you to play games from your tablet on your TV. Available in the US starting January 31, the Vyper is packaged with a docking station and an AirMouse remote control for $199.99. However, for $249.99, it also comes with a Bluetooth gaming controller.
Navigating through a custom user interface developed by Snakebyte, you can play games, watch movies or shows on Netflix or Hulu, and play music. As an Android-based platform, the Google Play Store and all your apps will also be accessible.
During my brief time with the Vyper, I was able to navigate to and play Riptide GP 2 (which is shown in the photo above). Once the tablet plugged into the docking station, connection was quick and easy. I also found the UI to be intuitive and familiar.
