The Case That Turns Your Smartphone Into A Game Boy Was Shown Working At E3

The folks at Neowin made an exciting discovery at E3 this week. Originally teased as an April Fools’ joke over a year ago, Hyperkin’s Smart Boy was not only on the show floor with an updated design this year, it was also fully-functional, with a possible official release closer to December.

This Invisible Fence Will Stop You From Blindly Running Into Things While Playing VR Games

It’s fun watching people wearing an Oculus Rift or HTC Vive run into walls, trip over furniture or smash into other obstacles while playing a VR game. But it’s not as fun when you’re the one accidentally breaking your own TV, so Nyko has come up with a solution that makes it safer to explore a VR world while you’re inside the real one.

The New Plantonics Wireless RIG 800 Headset Has A 24 Hour Battery Life

Gone are the days of worrying if your headset will cut out. Made specifically for Xbox One and PS4, the latest addition to Plantronics’ RIG 800 series are the first wireless gaming headsets with up to 24-hour battery life.

Sony's PlayStation VR Now Has A Release Date

At Sony’s E3 2016 press conference, the PS4-maker spilled the beans on when the PlayStation VR virtual reality headset will be out in retail stores for you to buy. We already knew it’d be October this year, but now we know which day.

These Glass Speakers Work Like Magic

Turtle Beach’s Hypersound Glass speakers use a sheet of transparent glass to drive sound in a highly focused beam directly in front of them while being inaudible outside the beam’s range. Welcome to never knowing why you’re hearing ads all the time — our Blade Runner hell future has arrived.

Oculus Founders Explain Why You'll Likely Stay Seated In Virtual Reality

Oculus has a incredible product: a headset that can make you feel like you’re in another world. With its upcoming motion controllers, Oculus Touch, you can even reach out and grab virtual objects. But a competing headset, the HTC Vive, will let you walk around in VR too — and it will ship this year, before Oculus can make its move.

The Walking Dead In Virtual Reality Was The Scariest Thing I Saw At E3

It wasn’t that the zombies were too realistic. I wasn’t afraid for my life or anything silly like that. No, when I tried The Walking Dead in VR, what I chiefly saw was this: the disturbing possibility that virtual reality might get written off as a fad.

Sony's VR Headset Feels Great. Now It Needs More Games

I sit down in the dilapidated wooden chair, and put on the headset. It’s the 12th time this week. I’ve gotten really used to Sony’s Project Morpheus, and I love the way it feels. I pretty much just press a button to pull the display closer to my face, and boom — I’m in another world. I just wish there were more worlds I’d actually like to explore.

Guitar Hero TV Is A Music Video Channel You Can Play Along With 

It’s a conversation anybody who grew up in the ’90s has had at least a dozen times: “Remember when MTV actually played music videos?” Yes, yes — we all do. Those times are over. Well, those times were over: Activision is about to change everything. It’s launching Guitar Hero TV: a “channel” where you can not only watch music videos, but play along with them too.

Escape Room: A Real-World Game That Traps You In A Maddening Puzzle Room

You only need to glance at the announcements from last week’s E3 gaming mega-conference to realise that game studios are constantly engaged the pursuit of absolute realism in their titles. But to this day with all the next-gen consoles on Earth, not a single game beats real-life. That’s why physical games like IRL Shooter, Zero Latency and the now failed Z Day are taking off. A new real-world game centred around testing a player’s psychology has landed. It’s called Escape Room, and it’s designed to drive you mad.
