Mobile gaming is a huge industry these days. Even desktop and console titles like Fortnite and PlayerUnknowns: Battlegrounds have found their way to iPhone and Android. The one place sorely lacking with mobile gaming, however, is controller support. But that’s where Rotor Riot comes in.

Playing on a touchscreen is fine for titles like Subway Surfers or Clash of Clans, but for a fast-paced title like Fortnite, PUBG, or even Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, a controller is a must.

I have three smart outlets in my home. They make my bedroom fan and lamps a cinch to toggle on/off. An associated smartphone app even provides usage metrics so I know how much energy I am burning through. Having this information at my fingertips is certainly a neat feature, but at the end of the day, I don’t really know how helpful it actually is. A startup company called Currant has set out to help with this by offering its own Smart Outlet. What makes its offering unique is that it features an AI that provides easy-to-implement suggestions about how to save energy. expand full story

Featuring what ASUS has deemed a “double Full HD” display, 144Hz refresh rate, and more, the company’s latest endeavor enters the market with a few questions left unanswered. Head below for a closer look.
