A small team of hackers were able to reverse engineer a Wii U GamePad and allowing it to stream PC games.

The group behind the project showed of the capabilities of the hacked GamePad at this weeks 30th Chaos Communication Congress. They began the demonstration by streaming a drawing app on the tablet like controller. However, the audience erupted in applause after the presenters began streaming The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker – which was running on GameCube emulator, via a nearby laptop .

The team warns that code is aimed at developers – so don’t get too excited just yet. However, they’re working on a Windows/OSX version that’ll be user friendlier, as well as an Android port that’ll allow users to use the tablets of their choosing instead of the Wii U Gamepad.
