Nvidia showed tonight at a press event that its Shield mobile gaming device can stream a game from a PC to a TV in the living room.

Nvidia made the announcement at a press event ahead of the beginning of the 2014 International CES, the big tech trade show in Las Vegas this week. The company has talked about this tech before, but the demo went off without a hitch on a big screen TV.

Jen-Hsun Huang said you can play the PC-based game by streaming from the PC to the Shield, which has its own 720p screen on the controller itself. But you can close that screen on the Shield device.

Huang said that Shield can do this with very little delays. He showed it working on a machine that was streaming the game from a server in France.
