But not just any laptop, a USB-C laptop. These days, a number of laptops may only carry USB-C ports. Some may also have USB-A ports, but no HDMI in port. In fact it’s probably harder to find a laptop with an HDMI in port than you might think. And that’s where this device comes in handy.
If you ever find yourself in a position where you can’t play your PS5 on a larger screen or monitor, then you might want the Genki ShadowCast. This wonderful little device makes it possible for you to connect the console to a laptop display for playing games.
The Genki ShadowCast is the latest device from Human Things that was successfully crowdfunded. Following the success of devices like the ConvertDock. It also just went on sale starting today.
While this allows you to use the laptop screen to play games, it also works as a capture card. Which makes this perfect for anyone that wants an affordable solution for capturing gameplay footage for video uploads. And since everything happens on a laptop you should be able to use the webcam for streaming. Or you could just connect a DSLR and use that instead.
Not everyone has a PS5 just yet. But, maybe you’ve got a PS4, an Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, or even a Nintendo Switch. The ShadowCast will work with any of those devices for the same purpose. It even works with other HDMI devices.
Much like the ConvertDock, the ShadowCast is a small device. It has an HDMI plug on one end, and a USB-C port on the other. So all you have to do is plug the HDMI into your console or device, then plug a USB-C to USB-C cable into the other end, and connect it to your laptop’s USB-C port.
