Although ODROIDs can already play thousands of games, including those available from the Google Play Store, native Linux games that were ported by developers, and emulated games using RetroArch, many modern games are not yet capable of running natively on the ARM platform. However, NVIDIA publishes a software package that allows streaming of high-end games across a network, allowing ODROIDs to work as a remote gaming station. This gives the flexibility of running a central gaming server at home and playing high-end games anywhere in the house on a large monitor.
We also feature a few DIY projects this month, including an IoT project from Miltiadis that raises a flag when an email arrives. Adrian shows us how to set up an IP webcam, Joel gives an overview of his industrial automation setup, and Bo documents his quest in finding the best cooling setup for an ODROID-XU4. If you want to have complete control over your operating system, we have instructions for compiling both Gentoo and Android Lollipop. We also have some game reviews for our favorite Android and Linux games, including some ports that were recently updated by Tobias for the ODROID-C2.
