The Best Gadgets From Europe’s Biggest Tech Convention

The IFA, a technology show hosted this year in Berlin, is where major brands debut their newest gadgets (save for the new iPhone). Take a look!

Sony Smart Speaker

The Smart Speaker is Sony’s answer to Google Home. You can get help from the hands-free device by simply talking to it. It can turn on music, look up the news, or even buy items. The sound quality is excellent, which is Sony’s strong suit. It also shows the time, so it doubles as a clock.

Acer Predator Orion 9000

This gaming PC is the ultimate machine for those obsessed with gaming. It is so big it actually has wheels used to move the thing. This would be likely the PC used by professionals, as it’s got 128GB of quad-channel DDR4 RAM and a 18-core Intel Core i9 Extreme Edition processor. It stores an enormous 44 terabytes, and has the capacity for four graphics cards.

LG V30

Although most smartphones are not announced at IFA, LG decided to unveil its latest phone there. The V30 is the competitor to the new iPhone and Samsung Galaxy phones, as it also has dual cameras, slick glass edges, and none of the clunky hardware add-ons of its predecessors.
