Unhappy [Q] use tablet screen for multi purpose use?

OK yes its been asked before but I can't find any threads about this topic that don't date back to 2011. Let's say I'm feeling nostalgic and want to use my tablet as a screen for let's say a GameCube? Is there a way? No it doesn't have to be wireless, USB dongles will due, but is there some type of app for this scenario?

Not that I know. But there are emulators. So maybe there is a gamecube emulator.

You could hook that up to a PC and use something like teamviewer online on your tablet. So you are controlling your PC which plays the game all from your tablet.

Using an emulator and a remote screen solution would be absolutely horrendous for this purpose... latency issues everywhere (screen lag, ghosting, lack of sync between input and graphics...).

You will need an upscaler for this. Something that either takes component video input or composite and then outputs to HDMI.

Unfortunately the Nexus 10 port is output only. There are HDMI capable DIY panels you may want to check (Adafruit carries some... Alibaba might be a cheaper alternative). Other than that, there's no way.
