Going beyond small-screen mobile video games, this gaming tablet fills a gap in the market for embarking on virtual quests on-the-go. Plenty of gamers are happy enough to lug laptops to keep their favorite pastimes close at hand, yet I bet that they'd be convinced to shed some weight, were this device to become a reality.

Beau Reid designed the Xgamer as a handheld gadget with a super slim display, and he wanted the experience of interaction to be immersive. This goal led him to model the touchscreen as an arc shape, offering 180-degree views in a resolution of 1080 pixels in width. To play this virtual reality gaming tablet, the user has access to small joysticks and buttons that are concealed on a panel that's layered behind the display. This arrangement optimizes engagement with the graphics.
