The outlandish designs of gaming peripherals lend themselves in the direction of sci-fi imaginings: I’ve personally seen Razer’s Tartarus and Orbweaver keypads in Arrow and Ender’s Recreation. However the firm’s newest idea machine appears prefer it dropped proper off the bridge of a warp-capable starship. Meet Project Brooklyn, Razer’s idea for the way forward for PC gaming chairs and “battlestations.”
The essential structure of Brooklyn echoes the extra ridiculous gamer cockpits we’ve seen during the last 10 years or so, just like the Imperatorworks Thronos with its over-the-head monitor mount and tray for a mouse and keyboard. The large distinction is that Brooklyn’s big curved OLED display screen rolls up and folds again into the chair itself, in a movement which may win a nod of approval from Tony Stark. The 60-inch widescreen panel would completely immerse the consumer’s field of regard.
The fascinating tech doesn’t cease there. The chair’s tray space deploys from the arm relaxation in numerous layouts, and folds away for entry and exit. The chair itself options haptic suggestions motors (one thing Razer’s experimented with before), and a carbon fiber physique festooned with leather-based cushion areas. Energy and connection cables exit from the bottom, in an array that matches the Raptor monitor. And naturally, it wouldn’t be a Razer product with out RGB Chroma help.
In contrast to the Hazel mask concept released earlier this week, Venture Brooklyn doesn’t appear possible as a shopper product anytime within the close to future. Whereas none of its numerous parts are straight-up not possible, that 60-inch rollable OLED panel alone would price a king’s ransom … which might be why this machine solely exists as a 3D render in the mean time.
