LucidSound LS30 Review : wireless gaming headphones that don’t look ridiculous

I'm not the sort of person who shies away from slime green headphones - but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate a pair of muted grays and blacks now and again. With the LucidSound LS30 wireless gaming headphones, you'll find a pair of sound-blasters that don't look insane. And they sound pretty good, too. You'll be able to connect to basically any gaming system, including PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and your smartphone - and your PC, of course, but only unofficially.

Razer BlackWidow X line to disrupt gaming keyboard pricing with simplicity

Razer gaming keyboards aren't cheap - they're made to last, and they're not made to tend to the non-gamer crowd. With the new Razer BlackWidow X line of keyboards, the company is cutting down on price - not on production value, mind you, on price. The keyboards will be the same high-quality hardware you're used to with Razer, only now they'll be stripped of (almost) all of their bells and whistles.

Sugru Review for LEGO customization

Sugru Review for LEGO customization

Sugru is a strange sort of self-hardening glue/clay that comes in a variety of colors and plays very, very well with LEGO bricks. It's made for all sorts of different situations, like fitting around my MacBook power cord to add some protection to the places where it normally feels the most wear and tear.

We wanted to use the unique qualities of Sugru to step our LEGO game up to the next level.

Apple Watch owners are Kickstarting a string strap

Apple Watch owners are Kickstarting a string strap

Today we've come across a crowd-funded accessory that'll work for most any smartwatch, but is aimed at the Apple Watch in particular. This accessory is essentially a series of pieces of die-cast zinc, twine strands, and a bit of silicone rubber. While the actual execution may seem like a strange use of $30 USD, the concept is sound. While it may look strange, the space between the base of your thumb and your index finger is the ideal place to glance for a smart watch face.

Apple Magic Keyboard, Magic Trackpad 2, Magic Mouse 2 Review

Apple Magic Keyboard, Magic Trackpad 2, Magic Mouse 2 Review

Bye bye batteries. Apple's trio of peripherals - the Magic Keyboard, Magic Mouse 2, and Magic Trackpad 2 - have had a revamp, borrowing convenience tech from the iPhone.

That's not the only change, mind, though the extent to which your fingers will be happy will depend on how well you got on with the old designs.

Microsoft’s folding Bluetooth keyboard plays nice with all

Microsoft's Universal Folding Keyboard has finally hit store shelves, with the platform-agnostic wireless peripheral playing nicely with phones and tablets. Shown off back in March alongside a pair of midrange Lumia phones, the keyboard hooks up over Bluetooth and has a dedicated switching button at the top which allows it to flick between two different devices.
