According to a BBC report (thanks VG247), tech manufacturer Nvidia is readying a new device with in-home streaming capabilities similar to its portable Nvidia Shield device (and Steam's in-home Streaming functionality), that can connect to a desktop PC located elsewhere in your house to enable remote play on a TV screen.
The BBC understands the device will run PC titles via Nvidia's GeForce Experience system, which does require the PC to be fitted with one of Nvidia's more powerful graphics cards.

It will, however, be able to run Android games natively via Nvidia's new Tegra K1 chip.

The company recently showed off the mobile chip - which includes both an ARM-based central processing unit (CPU) and a 192-core GPU - at Google's I/O developers conference where it powered the graphics-intensive Unreal Engine 4 games software.
It's unclear whether this is the same device as the recently rumoured Nvidia Shield Tablet, but nothing we heard about that would rule that possibility out.

SteamOS capable?

I made use of in-home streaming for Steam just the other day.
I fired up Company of Heroes 2 on my Mac Book Air. It was surreal trying to read 2560x1080 'font' on a 1366x768 screen :P
[Even cooler given that COH2 isn't available on MacOS]

Admittedly I think this will probably have its own bloatware, but as soon as someone works out how to 'SteamOS-up' a little device like this, people will take notice.

Thought this was supposed to be the Shield Tablet.
