Hamish Hector

Senior Staff Writer, News

Hamish is a Senior Staff Writer for TechRadar and you’ll see his name appearing on articles across nearly every topic on the site from smart home deals to speaker reviews to graphics card news and everything in between. He uses his broad range of knowledge to help explain the latest gadgets and if they’re a must-buy or a fad fueled by hype. Though his specialty is writing about everything going on in the world of virtual reality and augmented reality.

He’s been writing about tech and gaming for over five years now, getting his start at the University of Warwick’s student newspaper The Boar as a writer and later Games Editor while studying for his BSc in Maths and Physics (and later an MSc in Biotechnology, Bioprocessing, and Business Management). After graduating from university in 2020 he wrote all about battle royale games for Gfinity Esports before joining the TechRadar team in February 2021.

In his free time, you’ll likely find Hamish lost in one of the latest VR games on his Meta Quest 3, watching a West End musical with his girlfriend, playing Magic: The Gathering at his local game store, or planning the D&D campaign he runs for his mates.
