36 PC Gaming Innovations

From Intergalactic Cases to Distraction-Blocking Monitors

— January 11, 2018 — Tech
These PC gaming innovations have made the past-time more interactive and engaging. Featuring products relating from peripherals to software, this list recognizes the advances in PC gaming and provides an insight on the future of the platform.

Perhaps one of the most unique innovations from this list is the Razer wireless charging mouse pad. By combing the technology involved with wireless charging and the functionality of a mouse pad, Razer has created a unique piece of tech that will change the way wireless mice are looked at.

Also featured in this list is Project Spark by Digital Storm. This unique PC is the smallest performance PC made commercially available and combines its portable package with robust internals. While portable and small PC's have been around for some time, none of those products have come close to the performance offered by this machine.
