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.

Me. I have a very nice surround sound system in my condo but my receiver is not very accessible. It's always annoying for me when I have to decide if I want to listen to music or have access to my phone. From what I understand this will eliminate that problem, and I will happily pay $300 to do so.

thats easy, I already use android phone to android tablet remote mouse/gamepad through DroidMote. 2 bux and it turns my phone into a remote control for my tablet so I can use my tablet as a media center for a TV. Yet another thing apple cant do.
