X Marks the Spot
The X Arc, available for rent or purchase through Exit Reality VR Inc., is a turnkey virtual-reality gaming activation that adds major wow factor to exhibits and corporate events. Included in the X Arc package are a 10-foot-tall, 18-foot-square aluminum frame with integrated LED lighting, a suite of touchscreen monitors, four HTC Vive VR headsets, all the necessary computing hardware and accessories, and a rich library of gaming content from Neurogaming Ltd. that's optimized for multiplayer adventures. The X Arc can also be outfitted with custom fabric graphics and gaming content for a truly brand-saturated activation. Requiring only a single operator to supervise the proceedings, the X Arc is a head-turning traffic builder that, thanks to its ability to accommodate up to four players at a time, is uniquely suited to handle the crowds.

Power Strip
Whether used as a promotional giveaway or an addition to your staffers' uniform, the 3 in 1 Charging Lanyard from Foxyware Inc. ensures that company reps and attendees will never be without a charging cable for their smartphones or other mobile devices. A removable cap at the end of this PVC-coated lanyard conceals both a USB Type-A and an Apple Lightning connector, while an attached dongle converts the latter into a USB Type-C connector, thereby allowing wearers to charge iOS- and Android-based devices. Available in four colors (black, blue, red, and white), the lanyards can be customized with a color imprint. Contact: Foxyware Inc., Port St. Lucie, FL, 877-241-6134, www.foxyware.com
Flipping Out
Give your signage a touch of old-school cool with the Split Flap Display from Oat Foundry LLC. A high-tech take on the classic flip boards that announced arrivals and departures at transit hubs, the Split Flap retains the quintessential clacking sound as its tiles rotate to create various messages but includes a web-based application that allows users to compose and schedule one-time or recurring text for upcoming product demos, theater presentations, giveaway drawings, and more. All units are made in Philadelphia, and each display's size, color, number of flip modules, fonts, and special characters (e.g., emojis, logos, and one-off designs) are customizable to complement any brand. The Split Flap requires a 110-220V plug-in, and flip modules can be individually replaced for easy repairs. Contact: Oat Foundry LLC, Philadelphia, 215-447-8915, www.oatfoundry.com
Speak Volumes
In-booth presentations are a reliable means of sharing information about your product or service to a large number of attendees at once – if everyone in the audience can hear your presenter. The 2.5 GHz Digital BeltBlaster, a wearable public-address amplifier, is a plug-and-play solution to overcoming the din of a noisy show floor. Weighing in at less than half a pound, the BeltBlaster is capable of emitting clear, crisp sounds for audiences of up to 100. A wireless headset microphone keeps presenters' hands free (the unit has a jack for a wired mic, if desired, as well as ports that allow users to play back music and other recorded content via a microSD card and/or a USB thumb drive), and a rechargeable battery supports up to 18 hours of continual use. For presenters who prefer to go belt free, the wireless headset has a range of approximately 100 feet. Contact: AmpliVox Sound Systems LLC, Northbrook, IL, 800-267-5486, www.ampli.com
