Google Nexus Q hacked to load video games

Updated Dec 19th, 2018 8:28PM EST

Google unveiled the Nexus Q streaming device at its annual Google I/O developer conference in San Francisco on Wednesday. For a media device, the Nexus Q has surprisingly good specs, featuring a dual-core TI OMAP 4460 CPU, the same chip found inside the Galaxy Nexus. The Q is also equipped with a Power VR SGX540 GPU, 1GB of RAM and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Less than 12 hours after the Nexus Q was announced, Philippe Hausler, an Android app developer, managed to get the Android game Swords and Soldiers to load on the device. The game won’t actually run, but Hausler’s efforts highlight the flexibility and potential of the Nexus Q.
