Tech enthusiasts from across the country are flocking to Birmingham this week to attend the Gadget Show Live at the NEC. Doors opened to the public today but KitGuru was there yesterday on the press day to give you a sneak peak of what you can expect to see!
The Gadget Show Live is a massive event and there really is something to see for everyone. There are specific sections for different classes of gadget from home gadgets to in-car gadgets. Of course, KitGuru’s reporters headed straight for the Game Zone to see what was on show.
Antec’s booth caught our eyes first with it’s unique black and yellow colour scheme. They had a wide range of their products on display from Power Supplies to notebook coolers. They were also showing off their new range of gadget cleaning products which includes a spray kit and cleaning wipes.
Turtle Beach was enticing gamers in with a large display of their latest and greatest Xbox 360 and PS3 headsets. They were also letting people try out their headsets on Ridge Racer Unbounded.
Visiting the Mad Catz stand was far more exciting, though, as they had a vast number of brand new products on display. They made a big point of informing us that their new range of Tritton Xbox 360 headsets are the only officially licensed and co-branded Xbox 360 headsets on the market. These were installed on all of Microsoft’s Xbox 360 modules across the show, not just on the Mad Catz stand.
They were also showcasing their new range of Ghost Recon Future Soldier gaming peripherals, including specially crafted controllers for PS3 and Xbox 360 an impressive 7.1 surround sound headset, modelled by PR Guru Alex Verrey.
They also demonstrated their new MLG Pro Circuit Tournament Grade Xbox 360 controller which has a number of unique features including switchable D-pad and joystick modules and replaceable faceplates.
Whilst wondering past the Microlab stand, some familiar award logos caught our eyes! Microlab was showcasing a few different products from their speaker range including the Microlab Solo6C which we reviewed here.
Wacom were demonstrating their latest iPad stylus, the Stylus Duo which is an updated version of the Bamboo Stylus which features a pen in the other end. They also had some of their Bamboo graphics tablets on display for people to play with.
