Nexus Q already hacked, has capability to launch games
Well it has been about 24 hours since happy Google I/O attendees skipped away with their free gadgets. The Nexus Q seems to have been one of the more popular devices to pull apart and tinker with the last day.
Galaxy Nexus, has PowerVR SGX540 graphics, 1 GB of RAM, and a handy microUSB port, it’s a magnet for developers to see what they can get this little guy to do. Android app developer Christina Kelly has already managed to get the Android game Swords and Soldiers to launch on the device. Unfortunately, since there are no touch controls, the title screen is about as fun as it gets.
Considering the orb can be controlled using an Android device, we wouldn’t be surprised to see someone figure out how to launch the apps off the orb and use the mobile Android device as a remote. No matter where it goes from here, we’re excited to see what the devs come up with next.
