Nvidia Project Shield – A Wee Update!

Just this minute I received an email from the Project Shield subscription, and for anyone who didn’t sign up but is interested to hear what they have to say – here it is.

We’re getting closer to the launch of our NVIDIA® Tegra® 4-powered Project SHIELD portable gaming console, so we thought you’d like to get a sneak peek into the manufacturing process.

To create the casing, we inject a polycarbonate material into the RHCM (Rapid Heat Cycle Molding) tool at 10,800 PSI and 300 degrees Celsius.
