Razer Edge tablet looks to take PC gaming mobile for $999

We've seen a few companies try their hands at tablet gaming, but now Razer is officially entering the space with its new Edge tablet. To say that the Edge is "new" is somewhat misleading, as we were introduced to a version of this tablet at CES 2012.

PowerA goes pro with new MOGA controller

If you’re a mobile gamer, there’s a pretty good chance you’re familiar with the MOGA pocket controller for Android.

Kopin outs Golden-i Gen 3.8: Faster, lighter wearable computer

Kopin and Motorola Solutions got the original Golden-i wearable computer to market ahead of Google's Glass, but the HC1 headset was hardly fashionable; now, Kopin is back with Golden-i Gen 3.8, a slicker redesign.

Dell Project Ophelia slaps Android in a USB computer for cloud-based joy

Dell may have ditched its Android phone plans, but it's still kicking Google's OS around, with the new Dell Wyse Project Ophelia USB computer relying on Android to turn any display into a PC or cloud gaming system.
