Razer today launched two new peripherals dedicated to streamers: the Razer Kiyo camera and the Razer Siren X microphone.Razer Kiyo
The Razer Kiyo camera aims to solve the problem of streamer’s faces not getting enough light. By attaching a ring light around the camera, it offers an effective, hassle free way of making the streamer more visible.
The camera has a 4MP sensor and can record video at up to 1080p at 30fps, or still images at 2,688x1520p. The field of view is a narrow-ish at 81.6°, but that’s more than enough for most stationary streamers. The Kiyo sits on a L-shaped joint that attaches to your monitor or an optional [...]

Microsoft’s Surface Studio is pretty cool. The 28-inch all-in-one desktop that instantly turns into a large canvas for drawing certainly drew a lot of attention when it was revealed last year, but there’s a couple major problems with it. First, you’ll have to fork out at least $3,000 for just the base model and second, you’re locked into the existing hardware with little to no upgrade path within just a few years.
To solve this issue, Dell revealed the Canvas 27, which is a solution that provides all the benefits the Surface Studio provides, but removes all the limitations. The Dell Canvas 27 is a massive pen display sporting a 27-inch Adobe [...]
