LOS ANGELES - June 11, 2013 - Nyko Technologies
®, the premier gaming peripherals
manufacturer, is unveiling their latest products at the Electronic
Entertainment Expo (E3). A stalwart exhibitor at the video game
industry's headline event, Nyko is proud to announce a line of
charging and video products for use exclusively with the ultimate
gaming and entertainment portable, NVIDIA® SHIELD™.
"SHIELD is a unique piece of hardware; it's high performance
gaming that meets portable entertainment," said Chris Arbogast,
director of marketing, Nyko Technologies. "We are excited to be
working with NVIDIA to provide SHIELD gamers unique ways to power,
charge and enhance their devices."
Nyko's E3 2013 SHIELD accessory line-up includes:
SHIELD Dock utilizes Nyko's patented dongle
charging system to provide a sleek and easy alternative for
powering the device and utilizing its HDMI capabilities. The dongle
attaches directly to SHIELD, and works seamlessly with the device.
Simply place the unit into the dock and SHIELD will begin to charge
while outputting to the attached display. The SHIELD Dock is
powered by the same AC adapter that ships with SHIELD, and features
a full-sized HDMI port allowing for easy connection to any HDTV
screen. Users can also pair a Nyko PlayPad with SHIELD while in the
dock to turn the device into an ultra-portable console playing and
streaming their favorite Android and PC titles. The SHIELD Dock
will be released later this year.
Nyko is also showing two separate cases for SHIELD. The
Travel Case is an EVA soft case while the
Shell Case is a high-impact hard case. Both cases
fully encapsulate SHIELD, providing total protection. Each case is
custom fitted to the exact specifications of the device and
features a rubberized interior for added protection against bumps
and scrapes. A detachable accessory bag is included to store the AC
adapter and any necessary cables while traveling. An included
carabineer allows the case to be conveniently attached to a laptop
bag or backpack. Both the Travel Case and Shell Case will be
available this summer.
Power Kit provides all the necessary adapters and
cables to recharge SHIELD at home, while traveling, or in the car.
The kit includes one AC adapter, one car adapter and one extra-long
Micro USB cable with Velcro strap. The Power Kit is an ideal
replacement or secondary bundle for those looking to recharge
SHIELD. The Power Kit will be available this summer.
Additional pricing and availability details will be released at
a later time.
All of these products will be on display at Nyko's E3 booth
located in the Los Angeles Convention Center, West Hall, #5000.
