Samsung's Enormour Gaming Monitor
Samsung presented its giant curved monitor, one to impress even the most professional of gamers. The Odyssey Neo G9 is a whopping 57 inches with a 7,680 x 2,160-pixel resolution and 32:9 aspect ratio.

Sony Unvelis Its Accessibillity Controller
Project Leonardo, the codename for Sony’s PlayStation 5 accessibility kit, “will allow players with disabilities to play more easily, more comfortably and for longer periods.” Sony collaborated on the kit with accessibility groups AbleGamers, SpecialEffect and StackUp to ensure a product that will be functional for a range of players with challenges that include limited mobility, difficulty pressing small groups of buttons and difficulty holding a controller for a prolonged period of time.
"We finally settled on a 'split controller' design that allows near free-form left/right thumb stick repositionability, can be used without needing to be held, and features very flexible button and stick cap swapping.” Sony designer So Morimoto said in a blog post.
The controller can also flexibly accept combinations of accessibility accessories to create a unique aesthetic," he added.
