E3 2019 had some seriously badass hardware and accessories — here are the highlights
One of the biggest hardware surprises I saw at E3 was an upcoming product from Buddah Tek called the Rover 1, which pairs with the very stylish R1 Messenger Bag. The Rover 1 is an extremely compact laptop-like device that you can put most current generation consoles into, allowing you to easily take your gaming console experience with you wherever you go. It’s a simple device, and not a new concept for gamers, who have found ways for years to go mobile with console games. But where other mobile console solutions can be bulky and tacky, Buddah Tek sets itself apart by managing to look stylish and hip. The Rover 1 is black with red trim, and has a classy pattern that makes it look like a designer handbag or a Louis Vuitton accessory. When turned on, the red trim faintly glows, and the pattern doubles as a venting system to keep your console running cool in style.
The Rover 1 has a 13.3” screen, and is powered by the console you pair with it, removing the necessity for multiple power cords to start gaming. It also has dual speakers and a subwoofer, as well as a jack for headphones if you need a lowkey option. Alternatively, you can simply pair a headset with a console as you normally would. Paired with the R1 Messenger Bag, the Rover 1 can easily be transported, and look classy in the process. Crafted with vegan leather, with a padded, monogrammed interior, the messenger bag is all about luxury and fashion.
With the Rover 1 and its messenger bag, Buddah Tek hopes to create a new category for gamers who want to take their games with them without sacrificing their personal swagger in doing so. The Rover 1 is something that celebrities and influencers could be seen with — a luxury item that’s meant to make a statement as much as it’s meant to serve a function for mobile console gaming. And that’s something that our industry hasn’t seen before.
The Rover 1 is available for preorder now, and will hit the streets in September.
