Dubbed the Obox Online, this Android gaming console, from Chinese gaming company Snail Games, was unveiled this week at CES 2015, the Consumer Electronics Show held every year in Las Vegas where technology and consumer electronics firms showcase their upcoming products.
Running Android 4.4 (KitKat ), boasting 4 GB of ram, and powered by a Tegra k1, one of Nvidia’s powerful ‘systems on a chip’ designed to provide tablet with PC grade graphics and rendering, the Obox is designed with high quality, resource hungry games in mind.
The Obox comes with two USB 2.0 and one 3.0 port, and supports Bluetooth 4.0 for connecting controllers and other devices. The system also comes with its own wireless controller, featuring a 9-axis sensor, gyroscope, and magneto scope. It also promises ‘air mouse action’, and is able to sync-up and cast to and from Snail Game’s newly announced Android portables, the W and W3D.
The system uses a HDMI connection, making it suitable for HD gaming and 4k streaming, and features multiple ports, to make use of the recording function described in a recent release.
It isn’t the only Android Console on show at CES this week, with Razor’s Forge TV also looking to capture the market’s interest, but it’ll certainly catch the eye of those after a powerful system.Click here for more.
