Question # 1: who are you?
Hey, my name is Robert Kohlick, I'm 25 years old and an online editor at GIGA TECH.
Question # 2: How long have you been at GIGA and what are you doing here?
I have been part of the editor's inventory at GIGA TECH since the beginning of 2018 and, with my namesake Robert Kägler, I am one of the nestlings among my colleagues. At the beginning I was responsible for the social area, but now as a gaming hardware expert I take care of everything that you install or connect in your PC so that you can play with it: graphics cards, processors, gaming headsets, keyboards and - Mice - that's my area of expertise. You wonder why you should trust me? Do you really think these eyes can lie?
Question # 3: What are you particularly good at?
Convince me that the overclocks of my RAM, my graphics card and my processor are stable, even if I get blue screens every now and then.

Question # 4: Where are you really bad at?
For me, painting and drawing are books with seven seals. Whenever I play activity with my friends and I have to draw, everyone on my team rolls their eyes. I always try so hard …
Question # 5: What is a lifehack that you think everyone should know?
I often feel that I need AA batteries for my Xbox controller, but only find AAA models in the apartment. But thanks to physics, I can also use the small energy storage devices to get my controller up and running. To do this, I roll up a bit of aluminum foil to form a ball that bridges the contacts between the controller and the battery and put it in the battery compartment. Finished.

Question # 6: What was your biggest bad buy?
Clearly the Logitech MOMO Racing Wheel - a PC steering wheel with semi-automatic gearshift and gas / brake pedal. I got the part to be able to play GRID properly, and it was really fun! I spent hours every day grabbing one cup after another.
However, after playing through the game, my enthusiasm for racing games abated. And when I played into a racer again, I didn't feel like building up all the equipment. Since then the good stuff has been dusting in my closet. I still don't want to sell it. Maybe the "Need for Speed" will grab me again someday.
Question # 7: Which current technology are you currently most excited about?
Clearly augmented reality. The idea that at some point I no longer have a TV in the living room, but simply smack my window against the wall with Netflix, is absolutely awesome. When cooking, I can have the recipe faded in again and again, the repair of the manual for the respective device or maybe even the video chat with the support staff.
The first devices like Microsoft's HoloLens already show where the journey could go. Now the glasses only have to become significantly more compact, cheaper, more stylish and more powerful. You will probably still be allowed to dream.
