TAIHE Gemini on-the-go monitor

Many working professionals can enjoy the convenience of using multiple screens at their desks in the office or at home. However, UNICK believes that there are few options to do this when working in coffee shops, hotel rooms, or any other on-the-go situation. That’s why it made the TAIHE Gemini, which it claims is the most affordable 15.6-inch monitor with kickstand and on-board battery on the market.

Gemini comes in two versions: One has 1080p (FHD) resolution and touchscreen features, while the other offers up 4K resolution.

The monitor weighs only 2lbs and has a built-in battery life of five hours. It also works with any brand of laptop. No matter if it is HDMI, Mini DP/DP or Type C, you just need to plug and play.

As well as laptops, the TAIHE Gemini monitor works with compatible smartphones as well as gaming devices such as Xbox, PS4 and Switch.

Cybershoes VR accessory

Cybershoes allow gamers to “literally walk and run through virtual reality”. They strap directly onto your feet, and when seated on a swivel bar stool, you can run and walk in-game.

Cybershoes are compatible with many VR games and their makers say they are the first treadmill-style accessory integrated into SteamVR.

“You want to be in the game and become one with your game character but you are limited to the joystick and the couch. Our idea is simple, you need a swivel chair and your Cybershoes, then full immersion can start,” says Cybershoes.

The gadget is compatible with any VR game that supports free locomotion, including Arizona Sunshine, Doom VFR, Fallout, Minecraft and Skyrim, just to name a few.
