“Do not use in a public place” says the user manual for the Avegant Glyph, a Geordi La Forge style* visor that beams video directly onto your eyeballs. I presume the warning is because you might get robbed while staring distractedly into a 65-inch virtual screen hanging in space, but it also might be because the Glyph might destroy whatever shreds of ‘cred’ you’ve amassed thus far in your nerdly life. Regardless, this face-mounted movie theatre is well worth trying — just make sure you do it in the privacy of your own home. Here’s our full review.Design

The ASUS ROG STRIX X370-F is a high-end AM4 motherboard, retailing for close to £200 ($200) and sitting only underneath the £260 Crosshair VI Hero in ASUS’ lineup. The ROG STRIX branding means we can expect some pretty high-end features added onto the X370 chipset, including on-board RGB lighting, SupremeFX audio and comprehensive support for overclocking and cooling.

I’ve always daydreamed about being a professional musician. Sure, having fame and wealth would be nice, but what really drives me is the chance to spend some quality time with some high-end audio equipment.
Our review unit today isn’t high-end by any stretch of the imagination, but it does look pretty legitimate. It’s the Aukey GD-G1 Condenser Microphone. In one box, you get a golden microphone (!), a pop filter, a shock mount and a boom arm — not bad for less than thirty quid on Amazon.

There are plenty of headset stands on the market, but few are well-suited to holding heavy and long-cabled VR headsets and fragile gaming headphones. One new contender is the NZXT Puck, a magnetic headset stand designed to strap your VR or audio headset conveniently to the side of your PC while keeping long cables safely under wraps. The Puck first appeared as part of NZXT’s VR-focused S340 Elite case, but now it’s available as a standalone accessory in a range of colours for £20 ($20).
