For others, SHIELD tablet’s GPU-accelerated, stylus-optimized Dabbler art program presented the opportunity to get creative, drawing anything they could think of.

The thronging 350,000-strong Gamescom crowd attended our NVIDIA SHIELD stage shows, too, learning about SHIELD tablet, getting NVIDIA GeForce GTX goodies, and getting the chance to win a SHIELD tablet bundle containing the tablet itself, a SHIELD wireless controller, and a SHIELD tablet cover.
