You may know this console by it’s rumoured name the Nintendo NX. Available to buy in March 2017, this console bridges the gap between a stay-at-home console and an out-and-about gaming machine. The beauty of Nintendo is it’s inclusiveness. Other consoles have evolved to rely heavily on network multiplayer gaming rather than the old-school style of actually being in the same room. Nintendo has kept this tradition alive with it’s modular controller that can be taken apart to be used as two controls so you can bust out a game of Mario Karts with your mates in the park.
Founded in 2010, The Vortexgear company set out to improve the craftsmanship of keyboards and change their dull image into a piece of equipment to be proud of. The Vortexgear KBC Pok3r has done just that. This mechanical keyboard is 60% the size of a full width keyboard, has a metal casing and PBT keycaps sitting on your choice of Cherry MX switches, giving you control over key pressure and click loudness. The keycaps are easily interchangeable if you want to upgrade it with new colours or change the QWERTY layout to DVORAK or COLEMAK. The Pok3r Mechanical Keyboard has three programmable layers on top of it’s default keyboard layer, meaning you can set different functions to different keys up to three times. At the press of a button you can switch from the default typing keyboard to one set up for your gaming rig, or one for your development environment, or even one that’ll type your most commonly typed phrases or email addresses with a single click.
