The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 may have dominated headlines at E3 this year, but that doesn’t mean there wasn’t some killer PC gaming hardware on display.
Take a look at some of the awesome hardware that will be available to PC gamers over the next few months (and years):
Nvidia GeForce GRID Streaming
The PC gaming world has known about Nvidia GeForce GRID Streaming since CES 2013, but the gaming hardware manufacturer revealed more about this service at E3. Basically, the idea is to provide real time graphics processing over an online stream.
What does that mean for gamers? It means that you can access a powerful PC worth tens of thousands of dollars while only paying a few dollars per month for your subscription. It’s cloud technology at its finest, and it means that in a decade, all we may need to enjoy our favorite games at the highest speeds and best graphics settings is a good internet connection.
Whether you call this a PC gaming box or a console gaming box, there’s no doubt that the Ouya has some major ambitions. At a price of just $100, Ouya runs Android instead of Windows but will still be able to play some of the latest games.
Cinemizer OLED Gaming Glasses
Yes, they look a bit silly in that picture. But thankfully, the OLED Gaming Glasses look coolest when you’re the one wearing them. These glasses put screens directly in front of your eyeballs and respond to head movement. So if you look one way, the screen will shift that way too. It’s kind of like Oculus Rift, but not as cool or as expensive.
The Stinky Footboard is the most unique gaming peripheral I’ve seen over the last few years. It connects to your PC and adds four new buttons that can be activated with a press of your foot. Simply tap your foot up, down, left, or right to access programmable functions in games or even in Windows. If you find your fingers are running out of room to maneuver, then this could be a game changer for you.
Cyborg R.A.T. 7 Gaming Mouse
If you take a look at that above picture, it takes a few seconds to realize that you’re not looking at a melted down transformer – you’re looking at a bonafide gaming mouse. This mouse will be available in several different colors and comes with more programmable buttons than most people will ever need.
One thing’s for sure: if you buy this mouse, it’s probably going to be the first thing people notice on your desk.
