Check Out Android L's Unreal Engine 4 Demo from I/O

One of the most exciting parts of today's Android L Preview presentation was the Android Extension Pack. This set of features is what Google hopes will close the gap between DX11 and mobile. The company wants to put PC gaming graphics in our pockets and had a pretty impressive Unreal Engine demo to showcase its efforts.

This demo shows Epic's Unreal Engine 4 running on Nvidia's Tegra K1 chip. Google's Dave Burke revealed later in the keynote that the demo was running on Android TV, which is also new today. If you didn't catch the demo live, check it out below!

    Unless they're able to advance battery technology at the same time, this means nothing to me.

    And we care about you why?????

    There are power outlets in cars, airports, schools, restaurants, etc..... Pretty much anywhere most people lounge out. Also they make portable battery packs which can charge your phone 10x's over, that'll easily fit in a backpack if you happen to be nowhere near a power outlet.

    I had a quad SLI Titan in my pocket the whole time and didn't know it. Well, next to my other quad Titan.
