Most gaming keyboards are a mix between console-style controllers and traditional keyboards, but the addition of advanced ergonomics and a raised palm rest for the most-used keys add a level of comfort, especially for first-person shooter games. This newest version of the Tartarus Chroma keypad from Razer features 16 programmable game keys, a scroll-wheel, an eight-way thumb pad for additional controller buttons, and customizable RGB back-lighting.
It's been a while since I reviewed an LG smartphone and the new LG V40 ThinQ is a good one to break that dry streak. This phone features 5 built-in cameras if you can believe that! Why does anyone need 5 cameras on their phone? Stay tuned for my review coming soon. Please follow The Gadgeteer or subscribe to our newsletter so you won't miss my review. (11/21)

Captoglove started out as a device to help rehabilitate stroke victims, but it has now become a wearable interface for VR games and other applications. The Captoglove interface allows hand and finger gestures to be translated into actions in virtual reality — but a Captoglove can also be used for other tasks, like controlling a smart TV or even flying aerial drones. The gloves wirelessly connect to other devices using Bluetooth, and are made from the same durable, washable fabric used in sports equipment. Right hand and left hand versions are available, or they can also function as a pair.
Since this is a controller that can also work specifically with Android TV’s, Logitech provides the user with standard Android controls as well as instructions so that you will never have any issues navigating. When it comes to superior equipment, as well as enhanced control features, the Logitech Wireless F710 has got you covered. Not to mention allows you to steer away from those pesky wires if you’re OK going the wireless route in a gaming environment.
If you want a more tactile keyboard than your standard rubber membrane but don’t want to shell out $100 or more for a full mechanical, the Razer Ornata is a great alternative. This keyboard features Razer’s signature Chroma RBG backlighting, a leatherette wrist pad, and a unique mecha-membrane design which combines the tactile feel of mechanical key switches with a soft rubber membrane.

Since Twitch didn’t want to touch the emote because of legal concerns, according to Bain, he uploaded the photo to BTTV. BTTV, otherwise known as BetterTTV, is a third-party browser extension that allows people to use emotes in chat. Since these aren’t run through Twitch directly, the emotes often circumvent rules. This meant LUL could exist as an emote — a very, very popular emote — on Twitch despite the DMCA takedown. It only grew from there.
Since your mouse is one of the key ways you interact with your game, you'll want to consider a gaming mouse with features to increase accuracy. Mouse sensitivity is measured in dots per inch (DPI). The higher the DPI rating of a mouse, the more sensitive it is. Consider a mouse that lets you adjust DPI so you can find your ideal setting. Polling rate measures how often the mouse sends data to your computer, which is an indication of response time.
A robot meme based on video game news publication Destructoid’s logo. The robot is mainly used when a glitch, error or computerized sound is made on stream. It’s also used, however, to poke fun at people’s robotic tendencies. It was used quite heavily during Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s testimony before congress that was livestreamed on Twitch by The Washington Post. Twitch chat would spam Mr. Destructroid whenever Zuckerberg said something or reacted to a question.

Monkas tends to show up often on different streams because it’s relatable. It’s used in a moment of high intense action or something that’s particularly anxiety-inducing. During IRL streams, this may happen during a face-to-face encounter or when a streamer is ranting about something. Chats for gaming streams will see this pop up during stressful gameplay moments, and the chat wants to express that feeling through a visual. Monkas is a pretty relatable emote, and it’s bound to be one you see floating around Twitch.
The overall construction is quite sturdy and its light weight in case you need to move it around or travel with it to LAN parties. Underneath the desk you’ll also find a little cable management contraption to help with organization. Lastly, it comes in quite a few colors to fit your personality — red, black, blue, green, and white. The Arozzi Arena is awesome because of the color choices to match your style, portability, special and large surface designed strictly for gaming and overall affordability.

Razer makes a number of impressive gaming laptops, but the aptly named Stealth is the unsung hero of the family (yet one of its most popular). The Razer Stealth doesn’t show off with any over-the-top branding or styling like you see on many other gaming computers. The Stealth is simply a sleek, solid laptop, and it’s great for anyone who wants a lightweight laptop for work and play that doesn’t scream “gaming PC!” at everyone in the room.
Advances in battery tech and Bluetooth mean wireless headphones don't always carry a hefty price tag anymore. Among the best of the bunch are these lightweight stereo headphones from Jabra, which give up to eight hours of audio on their rechargeable batteries. They also come with a cord so they can be used when the batteries run out, or on airplane flights.
Specifically designed to meet the needs of gamers, the Chroma V2 comes with 5 additional dedicated macro keys for easy-access as well as an advanced Chroma configurator adding for special effects as it lights up at the press of your keys — you can choose the RGB patterns or individual keys to light up (this may come in handy if you program it alongside your hot keys for a particular game). All in all, if you are looking for a state of the art mechanical keyboard (we do not recommend anything that isn’t mechanical, especially gaming) that provides all of the necessary functions, as well as contains a refreshingly cool look, the Razer BlackWidow Chroma V2 just might be for you.
