Gaming headsets meet gyroscopes and accelerometers on a new Kickstarter project called the booster one. Borrowing the split-headband design of modern classics like the Sennheiser HD25 and using the now-ubiquitous aluminum for their construction, the Booster Ones aren’t all that unusual in their looks. Where they differ from most is in tracking the motions of your head and using them to perform in-game actions.
Sixth Sense Tech
If you’ve always dreamed of using your neck to do something more productive than just keeping your head from falling off, these might be just the ticket. The Kickstarter page shows off a few usage scenarios, such as switching weapons or activating abilities by turning left or right, but the most compelling among them seems to be scrolling the map on strategy games. Everything else just looks unnatural and probably uncomfortable over longer periods of time.
I like that this Kickstarter project is being run by a group of five young guys who are obviously enthusiastic about gaming, but that’s also what makes me hesitant to endorse the product. They’ll presumably have to code compatibility with each game themselves, and the challenges of procuring reliable suppliers and manufacturing partners are not to be underestimated. It’s one thing to build a few rough prototypes and produce a fun campaign video, and it’s a whole other matter to turn that into a retail reality.
The Booster One will cost a not insignificant $349 should it ever wind its way to retail shelves, but you can still get the super early bird price of $199 today. You’ll just have to be patient until the anticipated August shipping date (and optimistic about everything working out, but that’s always the way with Kickstarter).
Why I Went M.I.A For Almost Two Months And What Lies Ahead
It’s been awfully quiet here for a couple of weeks and I’m guessing most of you wondered where I was, So before you shoot . Please me hear me out.
I’ve been quite busy handling my final year project in school and a lot of jobs for clients. When I’m not blogging, I’m a product designer. I basically design apps and websites for brands and companies before it’s developed. You can take a look at my portfolio here to see what I’ve been up to – https://www.dribbble.com/naijatechguy
Also I think I would be needing active tech writers here so when I’m not available content would still be here. The past two months have been hectic and extremely stressful and I’m sorry the blog had to take the hit for all the stress.
If you are a good writer send me your rates and samples of what you’ve done before to [email protected]
In the mean time, I’m gonna resume posting here. When I wasn’t active here i still made updates on my social media handles. Please follow those handles to stay updated with what I’m up to.

How To Compare Phones And Check Prices Before Buying
Hello guys, I’ve been a bit slow in updating this part of the blog and it’s because I’ve been working really hard to add a How To Compare Phones And Check Prices feature.
How To Compare Phones
I just added a price and spec comparison feature to this blog. You can compare phone specs and prices then buy it if there’s a link to the store available in the option. –
I normally go to e-commerce stores and pick out the lowest prices so you get the best value for your money. Regular blog post updates would resume immediately.
Thanks for being an amazing reader.
