Roccat Skeltr, Sova and Swarm at GamesCom 2016

Roccat is expanding its product portfolio and had all the new kit on display at GamesCom 2016. Tom Loske was on hand to show us the Skeltr which allows you to connect a variety of mobile devices to your keyboard using the latest Swarm modular software solution – as well as the Sova gaming lapboard which converts your favourite chair or sofa into a gaming throne. 

With a large, 4-sided stand at GamesCom, Roccat was able to set up a number of different experience zones for attendees. Each corner of the stand had a ‘mini turret’ from which the Roccat ladies were passing out free energy drinks – and there was a team of ‘heavily armed militia’ wandering around looking intimidating. Used in conjunction with the Swarm software, Skeltr seems to offer some intriguing ways to control your PC – in game – and Roccat is actively looking for feedback from users as to what features should be added next.

KitGuru says: We saw a very early lapboard idea at GamesCom in 2012 and loved the concept straight away. Whether you’re able to enjoy gaming in this kind of position will be a matter of personal choice, but Tom’s advice to ‘Give it a go’ is certainly smart.
