Smart Gear by Roccat Can Link a Computer to a Phone

Roccat has designed a keyboard that has a dock for a smartphone so that one can use their phone as an extra control panel while gaming. This takes PC gaming to a whole new level, which may lead to more people spending countless hours in front of their screen.

To interact with this technology, one must download the 'Power-Grid' application to their phone. Once downloaded, the user can experiment with the different settings. There are options that allow the phone to control the volume of the game, see who is sending messages and even order a pizza so one doesn't have to leave their seat to go to the kitchen. There is also a customizable tab in which users can put their hotkeys. It's basically like having a mini-super computer on one's keyboard.

Roccat has revolutionized PC gaming with their Power-Grid application and keyboard hook-up.
