Nvidia has an RGB coated gaming phone box that uses GeForce Now



28 October 2021 We previously reported that the booth uses GeForce Now’s RTX 3080 subscription, when it actually uses the Priority subscription. This still gives RTX functionality, but not as robust. We apologize for this error.

Before the advent of pocket-sized supercomputers, telephone booths provided basic service in our towns and villages. Not only did they give Clark Kent a place to undress, but they also provided a constant line of communication while on the go. While the privileged few remain in service today, many now live their lives as reused miniature cafes, libraries and even defibrillator hubs. Now it looks like these retro relics are set to take on a new role in the UK as ‘the world’s smallest arcade’.

Powered by a 5G connection and Nvidia’s GeForce Now, the converted kiosks will use a tablet and controller to access the service, giving users remote access to their gaming PC libraries. Street, the booth has a built-in mini-fridge, meaning you can stay hydrated while playing in this unconventional space.

The Green Team says cloud gaming booths will help gamers get their “daily gaming fix when not at home”, but also says it will help protect “work and social life” . Oddly, it makes playing games seem like a risky act, but Nvidia also has data to back up its goals.

According to a survey conducted by the gaming GPU giant, 34% of gamers would prioritize finishing a level in their favorite game over eating, while 44% say they have escaped the toilet during work to play. Oddly, one in ten gamers also admitted to picking up a controller during their own wedding. Although, to be fair, presenting games as a form of evening entertainment seems like a big idea.

Of course, installing a retro phone booth with GeForce Now is new, but it’s also a testament to the versatility of the streaming service. While PC gaming has traditionally relied on specialized hardware, we may soon have reliable access to high-quality PC games wherever we are. Let’s just hope that Nvidia’s repackaged red box plans avoid confusing locals looking to make a simple phone call.

Sadly, it appears that Nvidia’s RGB coated phone booth is not a permanent device, as it was only in Manchester today. However, if you happen to find the booth standing proudly in your downtown area in the future, why not give it a go?
