During a particularly Inception-like moment in Nvidia’s CES 2012 press conference, the company demonstrated how the app Splashtop can let an Asus Transformer Prime stream information from a PC and affect it on the touchscreen.

That’s not too amazing on the surface - indeed, it was initially demonstrated running iTunes through Windows (through Android).

However the next program that was demonstrated was far more interesting - Skyrim, being streamed direct from a PC and controlled using the Xbox controller plugged into the Tranformer Prime.

Effectively, it’s the same kind of ‘cloud gaming’ that other services like OnLive uses, only performed on a local computer. Great if, like me, you spent a silly amount of money on a new GPU recently.

Splashtop Remote Desktop is available on the Android Market now for £3.21 [download].
