This is a demo of streaming PC games to the Nexus 7 (2013) using the Moonlight (formerly Limelight) app, a GameKlip and a PS3 controller.

Skip to 02:15 to see it in action.

What I used:
- Nexus 7 (2013) Wifi (Rooted)
- GameKlip Universal CaseMount: http://bit.ly/1r7JEFT
- Hard Plastic Case ($3 on eBay)
- PS3 DualShock 3 Controller
- Moonlight Game Streaming App: http://bit.ly/Xg6Q7N
- Sixaxis Controller App: http://bit.ly/1otbOJA

- You only need to root your device if you want a wireless connection to your PS3 controller. You can connect the PS3 controller without rooting using the cable that comes with the GameKlip
- The Moonlight app is basically the Gamestream technology originally developed by Nvidia. It requires, at minimum, a GeForce GTX 650 video card.
- There are additional apps like Kainy and Splashtop that stream games from PC to Android, but I decided to go with Moonlight since I have the required video card.
- HIGHLY recommend using a 5ghz capable router as streaming over 2.4ghz is not sufficient for a smooth experience. If you have a dual-band router then you have a 5ghz network to connect to.
- My router isn't the greatest. It's dual-band, but it's the modem/router combo that my ISP provided with my service. Works fairly decently, but planning to eventually invest in a dedicated router.
- You'll really want a wired connection from your PC to your router to make this work.

My PC specs:
- Windows 8.1 64bit
- Intel i5-3570k @ 3.4GHz
- 8GB ram
- Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 TI Boost
- Connection (Speedtest): 80mbps down / 20mbps up (5ghz Wifi)
