Review: Rocket League

Rocket League

Hands On:


One of the best types of games is that which allows you to have a lot of fun without too many rules or complications. This is exactly what happened with Rocket League, a game that has appeared out of nowhere and which is now transformed into an e-sport within less than a week after its release.

What makes this game so impressive is the fact that it’s a vehicle based action game and it seamlessly combined RC car driving with soccer. You will play on different fields and the main idea is to work with your team, which can be formed out of 2, 3 or 4 individuals in order to score as many goals within the limited amount of time.

fitbitI have always been a big believer in tech driving fitness.. As I work in the IT industry, gadgets play a very large part in my life. I believe having daily targets and goals to achieve is perhaps on of the best methods of improving health and fitness. So what better enabler could there be then a fitness tracker!?

The market is flooded with wearable tech at the minute, and a large percentage of that tech is aimed at the fitness fanatics. There’s some big players in this area of the market, each bringing their very own USP.

Ozeri Precision II Digital Bathroom Scale

Ikea Malkolm Swivel Chair

Malkolm Swivel chairAlthough I am only a casual home office user, my workstation takes pride of place in my living room.. My substantial L-shaped glass desk has been the home of many an hour of hard work and inspirational thinking.. However, my office chair has always left (until now) a lot to be desired.
