Ever wonder how to make your gaming experience even more immersive? Well, Philips Hue Play Smart Lights will give you a set of 10 light bars that can be set with 16.8 million colors so it matches the game’s mood! These lights come in three different sizes – 1×1 inch, 3×3 inches and 6×6 inches- but they’re all just as bright at 450 lumens for an output tone of voice that is informative.
Gaming after work or gaming as a profession both exposes you to harmful blue light, which can screw up your vision and sleep schedule. Having a blue light reduction glasses will help filter anywhere from 80-90% of the blue light emitted by your monitor/s- in case it doesn’t have a built-in function to reduce blue light either manually or by nighttime (tip: there are monitors that have an option to reduce blue light, so you should check your settings).
With this, you can game for hours on end without straining your eyes too much!
The Mr IRONSTONE gaming desk is the perfect way to keep everything you’ll ever need just right next to you while you are doing the most important thing: playing! It has enough space for you to put on your PC, laptops, monitors, speakers, and other furniture or accessories you’ll need for comfort. It even has a built-in cup holder and headphone hooks!
It’s not enough that you have good lumbar support from your gaming chair or an ergonomic keyboard and mouse to help with your wrists — you also need to take care of your feet! Having a great foot rest can help correct your posture too, especially if you are going to spend several hours per day playing games.
For ErgoFoam’s foot rest, you can adjust it in three ways: the normal way with the base attached, inverted, or detached.
Sitting several hours everyday can take a toll on your back, especially during colder months, so why not give your back the treatment it deserves while you are actively playing your games? Massage your back plus warm it up — that’s a level of comfort that you need!
Having a good mouse pad is an integral piece of equipment for gamers, and some of the factors to consider when looking for one are the size; shape and material (cloth or hard plastic); double-sided or single-sided; if there should be any wrist support included with the purchase. For many who opt for hard plastic, the surface eventually gets scratched or too smooth to be used comfortably, while cloth mouse pads often get worn out due to repeated use. But many reviews attest to Corsair’s MM300 Anti-Fray cloth mouse pad that even after several years of gaming, it’s still one of the best.
Have you ever lost your headphones because they got caught on the leg of a chair or in some other way dangled precariously from under the desk? This should solve that problem for good. This clamp is designed to fit desks up to 37mm thick and as narrow as 7mm, so it should be able to accommodate most desks that are currently in the market.
The holder can swivel around underneath your desk when not needed and then swing back out again with just one hand motion, making things much more convenient.
For Nintendo Switch console gamers, especially those who are a fan of The Legend of Zelda franchise, wouldn’t it be cool to store your games on this handmade sword?!

Do you mainly play on your iOS or Android device? Even at 6.5″ screen, things can get a little difficult to handle when playing RPGs or FPS games, so why not extend the reach of your fingers by transforming your very phone into a controller?
Playing games that really don’t utilize your entire keyboard? If so, you should consider using a one-handed mechanical keyboard for extra comfort. Move it around for maximum comfort too!
Are you into streaming? If so, you should check this one out. You can get these customizable LCD keys that can trigger anything you set it to – for example, launching OBS for broadcasting, Twitch, YouTube, and several other actions like switching between multiple webcams, open other applications while in-game, and basically anything you can think of (tip: you can also use this for work!).
Just a decoration that will give your room a definitive gaming vibe. You can set the colors to 13 different monochrome modes, smooth transitions between colors, and adjust brightness – all done remotely. You can also mix and match and find the best pattern before hanging it on your wall.
