What do you guys think about this Android device by Nvidia?
I got a game that you multiply, breath fire with two heads and brawl foes to oblivion with your clones: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/660664 (use Chrome on Windows for best performance)

Not much. Think looks horrible. It's often missed, but how humans interact with a device is usually one if not the biggest factor to a successful product.

Technologists engineers and upstream users miss this in favour of technological evolutions. Usually with little consideration of how humans use a device.

This device takes what is making tablets and smart phones successful and mire the success in unsuccessful controls. ie controls that only sell to a small segment of humans with money.

http://senseg.com/ would have been a more worth while technology. This tech would keep the pure TS interface, yet then also provide the finger feed back missing. Then I admit stick some shoulder buttons on then it's good to go.

This machine is going to flop. that's my opinion anyways :)

I love handhelds and normally the first to buy these things (I bought a gizmondo and the neo geo pocket colour) but not even I can see this taking off. 250-300 to play mobile games?

I have a Vita collecting dust. I hate the thing and wish I never bought it; it's just a rather expensive ps1 emulator, however, after hearing about Nvidia Shield it doesn't seem like such a waste of money.
