i dunno, they could eventually stream to your tablet anywhere you're connected to the internet....even at starbucks...and then you could plug in a steam controller (possibly) and stream metro 2033 to your tablet from your gaming rig

 

the potential for all of this has me pretty excited

I wouldn't get too excited about that.  You'd need some kind of quantum entanglement type of technology to pull that off.

the graphics won't be as crisp as if you were sitting at your gaming rig, but it could be done

If your gaming rig were generating the graphics that wouldn't be the issue(although bandwidth would be your limiting factor).  The problem is latency.  Even if you had the greatest network you could possibly create virtually every game would be unplayable.  It simply comes down to physics.  

 

edit:  Basically it's about lag.  Playing online games lag is an issue but it's that bad, but you're essentially doubling the problem by introducing input lag.  So if it's a game that can be played with lots of lag it doesn't matter, but that eliminates pretty much every modern game.

they talk about that in the vid.  right now its better to have both connected by ethernet to the same network.

 

but who knows what the next 10 or 20 years will bring.

Yeah I should have watched the video before commenting.  The results are about what I'd expect.  I don't think that could ever move past a wired LAN, and even still the performance isn't that great.  Completely kick-ass concept for sure but I'll remain skeptical about it working reliably.

Valve has released a d3d to opengl translation layer.  

 

https://github.com/ValveSoftware/ToGL

 

That's a good starting point for developers to recompile their directx code to work on linux.
