Furthermore, gamers can illuminate their builds with the 10 LED effects that can be customised with the ASUS Aura lighting control software.

Armaggeddon Molotov-5


The Armageddon Molotov-5 gaming headphones may be equipped with only 40mm drivers, but they are said to be able to deliver the full-range audio of rivals with larger drivers - at a fraction of their price, size and weight.

It comes with braided cables to boost durability and reduce cable entanglement. The headphones are available in blue, red and yellow.

Plantronics Voyager 5200


Stay safe when driving by using the Plantronics Voyager 5200 Bluetooth Headset. Its exclusive WindSmart technology provides wind and noise reduction. Its aerodynamic boom lets wind slide past without creating turbulence. The boom's windscreen acts as the first layer of protection for the mics, while each mic is further sheltered in a "wind box".

Samsung Gear 360


Equipped with two fish-eye lens cameras using a 15-megapixel image sensor each, the Samsung Gear 360 gives you the ability to capture 360-degree videos and 30-megapixel still images. You can also shoot 180-degree videos and images by using one of the two cameras.

With its light and compact design, Gear 360 is easy to take around. Plus, it is splash- and dust-resistant. The Samsung Gear 360 is compatible with selected Galaxy smartphones, including the Galaxy S7 edge 4G+ and Note 5 4G+.

Hellolulu Tate


The Hellolulu Tate is designed to carry everything you need for your daily commute.

It features a main zippered compartment with magnetic closures that has an internal padded sleeve to fit a 13-inch laptop. Two exterior side pockets let you insert water bottles and umbrellas, while a front accessory zippered pocket comes with a key chain clip.

Made of polyester, the Tate has a water-repellent coating that suits Singapore's moody weather. Available in yellow or red.

DXRacer RV001

$529, available at

Originated from motor racing, bucket seats are designed to keep racers in place for sharp turns. However, the bucket seat design has since found its way to gaming chairs and DXRacer has been the pioneer in this.

The company's new RV001 comes with 90-degree 4-D adjustable arms. Multi-functional mechanism and large angle adjustor allow easy adjustment of seat height and angle. Its higher backrest ensures the support of your entire spinal column, so you are less likely to get back or neck aches from long gaming sessions.
