NVIDIA talks about how they build Project Shield

NVIDIA explain how they build their Project Shield gaming device

NVIDIA unveiled their portable gaming device, Project Shield, at CES a couple of weeks ago now, and now they're talking about the process they went through to build it, going from engineers to the NVIDIA CES keynote stage.




The GPU, and soon to be portable gaming device maker, started their project in early 2012 where it began as a game controlled attached to an Android smartphone, on a block of... wood. Yes, a block of wood. They spent the rest of the year designing and testing various devices, with the first two prototypes delivered on December 18 - just mere weeks before the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas earlier this month.


In the final days and weeks before CES, engineers were cramming serious hours into assembling the units that would be shown off at CES in a contract partners facility in Silicon Valley. Engineers pulled off the last-minute work, getting batteries in place and then carefully building the device in its shell. It's crazy to see that NVIDIA were working right down to the wire.
