Philips touts amBX gaming peripherals at IFA

Darren Murph

Although amBX was launched some two years ago, not a whole lot has come of it. Earlier this year, Philips briefly mentioned the technology during its CES press conference, and now we're finally getting more details on its range of amBX-enabled peripherals. Reportedly, the lineup will be clad in graphite and silver and include "a pair of left and right satellite lights, a pair of left and right satellite 2.1 speaker lights and subwoofer, a pair of desk fans, a wrist rumbler, and a directional wall washer light that doubles as controller unit." The lights, of course, are meant to "change color and intensity in the context of what's happening onscreen," and the 160-watts of power should provide plenty of juice to rock your room of choice. Philips will be offering up four different kits depending on just how immersed you'd like to be, and while the starter kit will run you €199 ($272), the Premium Kit is likely to cost you quite a bit more when it lands in "select European markets" later this year. Check out another shot after the break.
