TAIPEI, Taiwan, July 8, 2021 — ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced the new ROG SLASH fashion line. This unique new product line is inspired by a cyberpunk attitude and it highlights the binary code that builds the virtual world. With a bold color scheme and durable materials, ROG SLASH is ready for gamers everywhere.
ROG SLASH bridges the gap between the virtual and the real. The cyberpunk-inspired ROG SLASH fuses digital personas with real-world fashion. At the core of every digital experience is a line of code, and just as a slash is used to start the execution of a command, ROG SLASH marks Republic of Gamers’ foray into esports fashion.
The Violet Red and Electric Blue color scheme pays homage to some of the original esports team colors of red versus blue. This bold color palette reflects the passion of ROG SLASH and the brand’s readiness to challenge existing notions about fashion.
Launching with six products, ROG SLASH is designed for gamers on the go. For carrying options, the bags offer multiple strap layouts and carrying handles. In addition, internal and external pockets offer maximum versatility. The Classic Messenger Bag pairs traditional design with futuristic ROG styling, while the Sling Bag offers compact mobility for any scenario. For lightweight flexibility, the Drawstring Bag provides an adaptable shape with breathable material.
ROG SLASH hats come in a variety of styles and are ready for any occasion. The Classic Baseball Cap offers a modern take on a classic look with ROG styling, while also offering water-repellent all-season protection. For a more contemporary look, there’s the Inside Out Camp Cap and the Swappable Label Cap, with the latter allowing users to customize the front logo with hook-and-loop tags.
ROG is proud to be the first to the esports fashion market with ROG SLASH. Celebrating gamers is central to the ROG brand, and this new collection showcases the unique style of gaming culture. For information about upcoming additions to the collection, stay tuned at https://rog.asus.com/rog-slash
The CyberLink FaceMe AI facial-recognition engine is ranked as one of the most accurate in the world by the renowned NIST FRVT (National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Facial Recognition Vendor Test) — listed as one of the Top 10 performers globally in the both 1:1 and 1:N tests. In tandem with the new Face Recognition Edge AI Dev Kit, FaceMe provides a flexible solution to enable facial recognition across a wide range of IoT and AIoT devices.
“Facial recognition is one of the most popular technologies powering an exponentially growing set of IoT solutions in a booming market,” said Dr. Jau Huang, CEO of CyberLink. “We are honored to partner with ASUS, a world leader in IoT, and provide solutions for development with FaceMe, one of the most accurate and flexible facial-recognition SDKs in the world.“
Optimized for Arm-based SoCs and Android, FaceMe can deliver real-time face detection and extraction. The Face Recognition Edge AI Dev Kit, which includes both FaceMe and Tinker Board 2, can be deployed as a digital-signage solution to perform real-time face detection and precisely determine attributes such as age, gender and emotion, dynamically providing valuable data on visitor traffic that can be used for statistics or even real-time ad personalization. Alternatively, for example, the Face Recognition Edge AI Dev Kit can enable hotel check-in kiosks to instantly identify enrolled loyalty members and offer them fast, fully-personalized and contactless experiences.
