For too long the power of smartphones have been tossed aside when it comes to PC gaming, or general PC use for that matter. It seems that the two have always been treated as separate devices instead of combining them to enhance the available functionality. Thankfully ROCCAT have explored the possibility of combining these devices and what they have produced looks mighty fine indeed!
ROCCAT™ Power-Grid™ is an advanced and fully-customizable remote control for your PC. It lets you connect to, monitor, and control your PC and games directly from your smartphone – and all without having to leave the action. Best of all: it’s totally free to get started.
Watch the video below to get some idea of what this is capable of.
In a nutshell, it lets you monitor all your computer's vital statistics such as CPU, RAM, HDD etc, keep in touch with friends via Sykpe or Teamspeak (as an example), change PC settings and game settings on the fly and even share any of your settings! All you need is to have your smartphone connected via WiFi. The app is available on Android and iOS.
