“We want to be the Nike or Burton of video gaming,” explains Brett Lovelady, founder of Astro Studios, a San Francisco–based industrial design firm that focuses on personal entertainment equipment. He’s talking about the studio’s new venture, Astro Gaming, a spin-off company that recently began making pro-grade gaming gear. “There was an opportunity to give gaming pros better-performing product, much like you would do with any professional sport,” he says. “You know, let’s give the best athletes the best products to perform with.” Just as Nike Lab develops specialty shoes for Olympians, Astro Gaming wants to make gear for the next kings of Kong.
