Obiwan222222 uses network streaming to play Nintendo Wii game on Android tablet

There are all sorts of ways to mod your device, whether it’s a phone or a tablet. And there are different levels of modding — you can go crazy with it, or you can do about as little as you want. The results will vary, obviously, but usually it’s always something worthwhile. In this case, from minimalist modder Obiwan222222, has managed to make Nintendo Wii games playable on an Android-powered tablet.

The tablet? An ASUS Transformer. How does he do it? It focuses on network streaming. He loads the Nintendo Wii game Mario Galaxy 2 on his PC through the open source emulator known as Dolphin, and then transmits it to the Transformer through Splashtop HD remote desktop application for Android. You can check out the video below to see it in action. While there’s a bit of lag in there, it does look playable, which is pretty impressive.
