Every week, every month, there’s yet another sign that now is the time when esports levels up and shows the wider world why it’s time to take notice. This new show – The Esports Moment – will talk to people who have had a big hand in the esports journey so far, and those who are shaping its future.

The Bell Nexus was unveiled at CES this year and it’s the sexy four-passenger air taxi Uber has been working on. With VTOL and super sleek design, those pipe dreams suddenly seem pretty tangible.
Sweet, sweet desk real estate. Where have you been all my life? Samsung’s new Space monitor gives back a lot of, well, space, and it also happens to be a really nice screen too!
That new superhero trailer about that one that does the cool things can’t help but tell us things about what happens after that other big movie with the massive cliffhanger. Spoilers are hard these days… but if you’re OK with some of the least surprising spoilers ever, take a look!
