Steam revealed lots of new projects related to updating its Steam game service in September for use with the still in-development Steam Machines and the new SteamOS. Today they’ve revealed some details about how one the features, in-home streaming, will work.

"Any two computers in a home can be used to stream a gameplay session and this can enable playing games on systems that would not traditionally be able to run those games. For example, a Windows only game could be streamed from a Windows PC to a Steam Machine running Linux in the living room. A graphically intensive game could be streamed from a beefy gaming rig in the office to your low powered laptop that you are using in bed. You could even start a game on one computer and move to a more comfortable location and continue playing it there."

So with only a slight delay of “10-20 ms” players can stream games from other sources. So if you have a laptop that can’t run Dota 2 or Skyrim gamers can now roam from their desktops and allowed free movement within their network to stream to the less powerful devices. Go outside guys get some sun.
