This week in unlikely collaborations, ASUS Republic of Gamers and IKEA are developing a new line of affordable gaming furniture and accessories.

IKEA and ROG engineers have reportedly held workshops with professional and casual gamers to better understand what types of home products we need ahead of diving into design.

“Around one-fourth of the global population (2.5 billion) are gamers, yet the needs of gaming lovers in terms of home furnishing have been so far overlooked,” the press release states. “There are a lot of existing conventions about gaming which are often stereotypical or negative, for example, all the games are built on violence, gaming is asocial and it is predominantly a men’s activity,” says Ewa Rychert, global business leader of workspace at IKEA. “In fact, figures show that gaming is among the most truly cross-demographic activities, and it can improve an individual’s mental health

Lenovo Making a Gaming Laptop That Weighs Less Than Four Pounds

Illustration for article titled Lenovo Is Making a Gaming Laptop That Weighs Less Than 4 Pounds

Lenovo is shrinking the chassis of the Legion 7i from 0.79 in. to 0.7 in., and the weight from 4.6 lbs to 3.9 lbs., making the up-coming Legion Slim 7i the lightest and slimmest gaming laptop it’s ever made. The company is attempting to tackle the holy-grail of laptop design: a laptop that is light, thin, and aesthetically pleasing, but also one with well-designed thermals so it can pack some serious power.

Max-Q graphics cards have helped shrink laptop chassis, but it often costs some performance. Even if a laptop has a non-Max-Q GPU, it doesn’t always mean the CPU heatsink or cooling fans suck enough heat away from the components to let the machine shine to its fullest potential. My experience with Lenovo gaming laptops has always been good when it comes to balancing power and thermals, but I have yet to test out

Facebook Gaming looks to give content creators music options for streams

Facebook Gaming streamers don’t need to worry about whether they’ll get slapped with a DMCA for playing copyrighted music in the background of their stream, the platform announced today.

In a blog post, Facebook Gaming said it’s worked out deals with numerous music labels, including Universal, Warner, Sony, Kobalt, and BMG, among others. While details of those agreements are confidential, Facebook is boasting that most popular music across a plethora of genres will be usable. 

To start, the platform is going to hook up Facebook Gaming partners with the feature. But it expects to give “Level Up” creators, the lower tier streamers, access soon. 

Facebook’s move toward getting gamers access to licensed music comes shortly after many streamers, primarily from Twitch, were given DMCA notices for playing background music on their streams earlier this summer. 

Since the issue arose, causing mass panic from online content creators, many streamers have avoided
