Nvidia has submitted designs for a pair of new wireless peripherals to the FCC. To wit, they are a TV remote (similar to the one used with Nvidia’s Android TV model), and a game controller. Starting with the latter, it’s obvious that it’s a redesign for a few reasons. First, the shape of the controller is a bit on the leaner side, thinning out at the lower portion (think PlayStation’s Sixaxis controller, but not quite as drastic).

Back in May 2016 we reported on Nvidia submitted a new Shield tablet to the FCC, which looked to be the follow-up to the current Shield K1 model. From what was in that FCC report, it looked like the new model would have been an upgrade to the current one, sporting a Tegra X1 chipset for starters. We say ‘would have’ because Nvidia has submitted a dismissal request letter to the FCC over the new tablet.
So far in the two years that Nvidia has launched the Nvidia Shield tablet we have had two iterations, the original and then the recently released Tegra K1 version. It seems a new version is passing through the FCC right now and this time it looks like it’ll be sporting the Tegra X1 chipset. This would obviously be a big improvement if this ends up being true.
Now available on Nvidia Shield devices, Pix the Cat is a mash-up between two old school classics, Snake and Pac-Man. Each single screen level contains a number of eggs and a corresponding number of target spaces. Each time Pix grabs an egg, it turns into a duckling that then proceeds to follow Pix around the level. Collect more eggs and your tail of ducklings gets longer and longer… so long, in fact, that eventually you have to be wary of hitting your own ducks and receiving a penalty.
About two days ago, the Nvidia Shield Android TV appeared on Amazon with two models available, the announced 16 GB version version, and a 500GB model. Of course it was subsequently taken down shortly after, but the internet doesn’t lie! Well okay maybe sometimes, but this was caught before it was taken down.
A new Nvidia Shield Portable may be on the way according to recent certifications for its Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities.
