TechBits: gaming gear (12.25.13)

Posted: Updated:

The Tech Guy got to look at a trio of gaming gadgets this week.  The first two can improve your accuracy in First Person Shooter games.

A4 Tech has come out with a gaming mouse that has fast tracking, and very quick response time on clicks that can help you make sure your gun sights are just where you want them- and can be sure you get off your shot quickly.  The mouse can also shoot burst with a single click.

A company called AirDrop Gaming has come up with the HipShotDot.  It's simply an LED that affixes to your screen with a suction cup.  The idea is to increase visibility of your cross hairs, to give you better accuracy in FPS games.  Sometimes cross hairs can get lost in everything happening on screen, and the HipShotDot stands out.

The playmg is a standalone Android-powered gaming system.  It's designed to take the place of loaning a phone or a table to children.  It comes pre-loaded with games, and can also download new ones from Google Play.  Bundles come with a re-loadable debit card for buying games.  Parents can also set up and account that lets them keep tabs on what games and apps their kids are downloading- and also let them see what their kids are doing on the device.
