PC components and accessories maker NZXT has today launched the HUE 2 family of RGB accessories. There are 10 new products in all, plus some kits / bundles to simplify the task of getting your system RGB tuned, all powered by CAM.

"If our H Series cases provide a canvas for people to build the gaming PC of their dreams, then our new HUE 2 family provides the palette they paint with," said Johnny Hou, founder of NZXT. "We love to celebrate the creativity of PC builders and we can’t wait to see the amazing battlestations they create with this complete line of RGB lighting accessories."

HUE 2 takes a step forward in functionality by adding a microcontroller to every single accessory. Thus each HUE 2 component can identify its specific LED configuration opening up more possibilities for users. Furthermore, this change enables the mixing and matching of different components on a single channel. In all NZXT claims that, with lighting synchronisation across the full range of channels and accessories, and individually addressable RGB LEDs, there are nearly limitless lighting setups possible.

The following four HUE 2 kits will be made available by NZXT next month:

HUE 2 RGB Lighting Kit (£64.99)

The HUE 2 RGB Lighting Kit is the heart of the new ecosystem and includes everything needed to add amazing RGB lighting to your PC. Each kit contains:

  • HUE 2 RGB controller with four channels, each supporting up to 40 LEDs and six accessories
  • High-performance microprocessor delivers virtually instantaneous response and incredibly smooth lighting effects
  • Four easy-to-mount HUE 2 RGB strips with individually addressable LEDs

NZXT, and everyone else convinced that RGB is a solid investment, maybe the future;

Stop it. Get some help.
I don't want my PC to look like a x-mas tree. Thank you.

I followed the link to their website and found only seven products, including the kits/bundles…..
None of them are especially fancy and just more of the usual strips, fans and so on.

Forget the future - It's the today… and to some extent the yesterday, but only because it's the today that we were promised by the sci-fi of yesterday.

Neither do I… I want mine to look like a tricorder. But you can do that - That's the beauty of RGB!!! :p
aha!
i can save the ninety quid for the ambient set merely by turning my monitor so it faces the wall.
