Thermaltake @ CES 2013

We had the opportunity to stop by Thermaltake today and check out their new products for 2013. Thermaltake has a full lineup of keyboards, mice, power supplies, headphones, and more that they were showing off.

We took a look at Thermaltake’s Tt esports keyboards which featured their MEKA keyboards which are mechanical keyboards built with gamers in mind.



Thermaltake also was showing off some of their new headphones also from the Tt esports lineup which feature the CRONOS, DRACCO, and ISURUS headphones. 




Make sure to check out our CES 2013 gallery for more pictures of Thermaltake's new products.


We met up with ROCCAT to take a look at some of their new offerings for this upcoming year here at CES 2014. 

ROCCAT has a new line of headsets, the Kave, which has a couple different versions (an analog version and a digital 5.1 surround version). We didn't get much of a chance to demo these too in-depth but given ROCCAT's track record we are looking forward to getting them onto the BCCHardware test bench for some more testing.

ROCCAT was also showing off their lineup of keyboards which is highlighted by the Ryos mechanical keyboards. The Ryos keyboards aren't new but they have introduced a new smaller version of the Ryos dubbed the Ryos TKL which is the same keyboard minus the number pad to make it fit into tighter desk configurations where a full keyboard might not work.

Android App Pick #142 - SwiftKey

We have just posted up another Android App Pick of the Week and this week we get productive with SwiftKey. This is the best mobile keyboard on any platform and it's not absolutely free. Take a look and see all the ways you can customize it and how it adapts to your typing style, and then you'll understand why it's our App Pick of the Week!



Over 10,000,000 Reason To Play Video Games

Valve is giving gamers over 10 Million reasons to play video games and each of those reasons is actually a dollar. That's right, at this point there is a $10,142,695 purse awaiting winners of DOTA 2. Valve is hosting a huge tournament where they've crowdfunded prize money and for every Compendium (in-game pack) that you purchase for the tournament, they raise the pot by $2.50.

Contribute to The International's overall prize pool while receiving special rewards. The International Compendium is a virtual booklet that contains dozens of ways to interact with the year’s biggest Dota 2 tournament. This year, you’ll earn even more rewards as you level up your Compendium by watching games, collecting player cards, making tournament predictions and more. It’s the next-best thing to being there.
