Get these gadgets

The annual IT Show is back with a bang.

This year's event is being held at the Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre levels three, four and six, and will end tomorrow.

Here are three gadgets worth going there for:

ACER PREDATOR Z301CT MONITOR

Those looking to take their gaming up a notch will love this monitor.

It boasts a curved 30-inch screen, a 21:9 aspect ratio display and is the world's first display to feature an eye-tracking function, which is named Tobii. It uses the gamer's eye movement to create a new input modality.

Pairing eye-tracking with mouse and keyboard or gamepad controls gives gamers a richer and more immersive experience, as they are able to mimic actions that occur in real life, such as looking for cover or aiming at a target.

PRICE: $1,198 (usual price $1,398)

CURVE XTREME 100 
4K WI-FI ACTION CAM

With the companion app, you can control the camera from your smartphone to take videos or capture 16-megapixel photos. It has a 140-degree-wide viewing angle and a 2-inch TFT display at the back.
