Gadgets – those glorious pieces of hardware which we covet so much. From mobile phones to laptops, cameras to kitchen tools, we cover ‘em here on Giz UK. Check this hub-page for all manner of news about these bank account-rinsing objects of desire.

If the stresses of virtual combat are leaving your palms clammy and your keyboard covered in sweat, Cooler Master wants you to know they don't think that's gross. Instead, they've created a new specially coated mechanical keyboard so your slippery fingers don't miss a single keystroke.
