An interesting idea comes to us by way of the folks at Spawn Labs, who have basically introduced us to the equivalent of the Slingbox, but for games.

Basically, what the Spawn HD-720 does is give you access to your own games when you’re not in the house or near the gaming location of your choice.  You can connect the “input device of your choosing”, which is an interesting move in and of itself, meaning (if I read this right) you can use your choice of controller for all your games.  There’s one thing to remember, though–with this game system, you have to have your games loaded into system memory, otherwise, the only game you’ll be playing is the last thing you left in the CD tray.

They retail for a hundred and ninety nine dollars, and are apparently now available either from the Spawn Labs website or in stores.
