Support this Project on Kickstarter:
GameBuddy lets you play PC, console & smartphone games remotely thru Wi-Fi or Ethernet on any screen (TV, PC, Tablet) with no delay.
…. Sure, Nvidia SHIELD’s GameStream function is pretty cool, if you only like playing Steam games. GameBuddy looks to blow it out of the water, by letting you play any game, console, PC or mobile, on any screen, at anytime.
…. And if the claim of no lag is true — that is huge. Crowdfunding on Kickstarter now the Portand, Maine based team of Ken Filliter and Derick Hui at iPIXEL Technology have really created a sleek, practical device that every gamer will want. Love it.
Why did we create GameBuddy?
We all love playing video games on smartphones and PCs. But can we play our favorite smartphone or PC games on a big screen while sitting comfortably on the couch? We also love playing console games on our XBox or Playstation – but face annoying interruptions when other family members want to watch TV. Can we pause and move to another room to continue playing the console game?
It wasn’t possible until we created GameBuddy. GameBuddy is an innovative HD video transmitter and receiver. It can stream any game to any screen anywhere with full HD quality and no detectable delay. It can also stream HD video across different platforms including Windows, Android and iOS devices. Powered by our innovative NoLAG technology, GameBuddy means you won’t feel any lag even when playing the most demanding first-person-shooting games.
In order to make sure every home can use our technology, we have tested our product to work with Wi-Fi, Ethernet, Homeplug and MOCA. As long as you have Wi-Fi or Ethernet network coverage, you are ready to go.
Why do you need a GameBuddy?
You can use GameBuddy to do any of the following.
1. Stream your PC or smartphone games to the big screen TV
2. Stream your console or smartphone games to a laptop or desktop PC
3. Stream your set-top box or DVR video to a tablet, PC or another TV
4. Stream your video from your PC hard-disk or cloud to a TV, tablet or smartphone
What makes GameBuddy unique?
NoLAG Video Transmission
GameBuddy incorporates our innovative NoLAG video transmission technology, capable of transferring full HD video with undetectable delay. While many competing technologies offer 200ms to 300ms delays, NoLAG HD video transmission only has a delay between 30ms to 60ms. (In fact, around 30ms most of the time. Worst case is still below 60ms.) Almost one tenth of our competitors. This undetectable delay enables gaming on another screen of your choice without affecting your experience. There is no other solution in the market capable of transferring full HD video with approximately 30ms delay over existing Wi-Fi or Ethernet network. We achieved it.
No Compatibility Issue
GameBuddy lets you send and receive games and videos at the push of a button. You don’t have to worry about compatibility with your iPhone, Android phone or PC.
No Connectivity Concern
You don’t have to worry about not getting signals as long as you have network coverage. We have tested compatibility with many popular Wi-Fi, Ethernet, Homeplug and MOCA solutions.
Software Transmitters and Receivers
Even better, we provide software for your PC, Tablet and Smartphone. Our app turns your devices into transmitters or receivers – giving you maximum flexibility to stream games and videos from one place to another. A cross platform experience.
