German gaming peripherals manufacturer, Roccat Studios, has introduced a groundbreaking technology called the Roccat Power-Grid. For the very first time in the history of PC gaming, players can control their games and computer with their smartphone. Power-Grid is completely free to get started.
The free-to-download Power-Grid is a tool that lets gamers connect, monitor and control their game and PC in real time while staying completely absorbed in the action. The app comes standard with four control displays – or “grids”. Three grids have been preloaded with a wide range of essential gaming tools – and the fourth is completely customizable.
The first of Power-Grid’s three pre-installed control grids is called the “Incoming Center”. It routes all outside voice and text communication – from Skype, Facebook, TeamSpeak, Twitter, to an at-a-glance display on the gamer’s smartphone. This means players can get messages from friends and teammates while staying in the game.
