I started with CNET reviewing laptops in 2009. Now I explore wearable tech, VR/AR, tablets, gaming and future/emerging trends in our changing world. Other obsessions include magic, immersive theater, puzzles, board games, cooking, improv and the New York Jets. My background includes an MFA in theater which I apply to thinking about immersive experiences of the future.

It's small...really small. But it has an extended set of controls, including dual analog sticks.

The Stratus doesn't work with all iPhones and iPads, according to SteelSeries, but we'll have to test it out ourselves.

GTA: San Andreas is the ultimate killer app for the Stratus.
