NVIDIA has put together a lengthy blog post to detail all the fun and excitement (and stress) that went into creating the new Project SHIELD. We didn’t realize this at the time but this thing has kicking around the minds of NVIDIA staffers for the better part of ten years. Apparently it takes a lot of Kentucky Fried Chicken and a dedicated team of like-minded individuals.
The first prototype, assembled in early 2012, was little more than a game controller fastened to a smartphone with wood. From that crude beginning, NVIDIA’s team of industrial designers sculpted a device that could fit in a user’s hands.
Check out the full blog post to learn how things came together so quickly in the end and to learn how important gaming is to NVIDIA. You’ll also learn a great deal about what the SHIELD is and what makes it so powerful and awesome. Can we just get a product launch, already?
