Best Gaming Tech from CES 2015

Last week’s CES 2015 was the biggest ever - attracting more than 3,500 exhibitors and 200,000+ attendees. The show had everything from curved HDTVs, to the latest wearables, to drones and quadcopters.

The gaming industry also had a big presence at the event - from brand new startups to juggernauts like Oculus and Sony making headlines. Here are a few gaming highlights from CES 2015:

  • Well-known gaming accessory company Razer made its virtual reality debut with a head-mounted platform called the OSVR - aimed at being affordable ($199) and open sourcel.
  • The Motix wants to replace your mouse with finger pointing. A motion-tracking sensor is placed behind your keyboard, and a tactile-feedback strip attaches right below your spacebar (for mouse buttons), so that your hands never have to leave the keyboard. Games that make use of shortcuts might be a great fit for this (like real time strategy).
  • Sony announced a Google Glass competitor, called the Sony SmartEyeglass Attach. The difference is that Sony’s product can be clipped on to any pair of glasses via a single optical display. Is the future of casual virtual reality gaming near?
