LAS VEGAS--Nvidia shows off its own portable gaming device, called Shield, though CEO Jen-Hsun Huang accidentally called it Project Thor live on stage. What could that mean?
Project Shield is just a prototype for now. Though it looks like an Xbox controller with a screen, it can stream 4K video and access Steam and Android games.
Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang unveils Nvidia Shield, a brand-new gaming device that leverages Android and the Tegra 4 quad-core processor.
The graphics look shockingly good for streaming.
At the press conference, an animated video of the device was played, and then slowed down to show off each feature spec by spec.
Here we see the audio capabilities.

Nvidia was proud to announce that Shield runs a "pure Android experience."
Perhaps as a dig at Apple, Jen-Hsun Huang pointed out very clearly that Shield will use no propriety ports. Instead, the industry standard cables are all compatible so you "don't have to buy another charger."
Here Nvidia's resident gamers demonstrate a little gameplay.
The Shield is smaller than the Wii U.
