Check out this Dell Streak with an SNES controller dock. The Dell Streak’s ability to work with standard USB keyboards also allows it to work with a modified SNES controller. We never thought we would see the day when these two gadgets combined.

It communicates wirelessly through USB. The FingerVU 1016W would be ideal to use with your HTPC (Home Theater PC), making it easier and more handy to use. You have full control of the software without having to turn on the TV.
