4. Sirius Pro Earbuds
For gamers who want to cut out the world around them when immersing themselves in their favorite game, a pair of high-tech earbuds is a must. The GravaStar Sirius Pro Earbuds take aesthetic inspiration from war-damaged, dystopian futures – what better to play Atomic Heart with?

From Shodan in System Shock, to Claptrap in Borderlands, everyone knows the importance of a trusty robot sidekick when on your next quest – so why not have your own? Tobbie, the AI robot, makes the perfect gaming companion. Tobbie uses ultra-intelligence to interact with you, and is even able to respond with gestures and emotions.
