Razer has a crazy new modular gaming desk PC concept, and a haptic gaming chair

TL;DR

  • Project Sophia is Razer’s concept modular gaming desk PC with an OLED screen attached.
  • It comes with a custom PC with an Intel CPU and an Nvidia GPU and has 13 modules for various functions.
  • Razer also revealed a haptic gaming chair called the Enki Pro HyperSense.

Razer yesterday announced a refresh to its popular Blade lineups of gaming laptops. While the refresh was a rather significant upgrade, it wasn’t the most exciting CES 2022 announcement Razer had for us. That comes today, in the form of a crazy modular gaming desk PC and a gaming chair with haptics for an immersive experience.

Razer today revealed Project Sophia — a concept modular gaming desk PC that aims to merge your desk PC setup into one big modular entity. To go along with it is a real product that you will be able to buy — the Razer Enki Pro HyperSense, a gaming chair that packs in a haptic feedback system.

Project Sophia — A modular gaming desk PC

Razer is looking to do a few things at once with this one. Project Sophia is, at its core, a modifiable desk. Razer says it can take up to 13 modules depending upon the purpose of the system. These modules include secondary screens, system monitoring tools, touch-screen hotkey panels, pen tablets, audio mixer units, and external capture cards.

While it is a desk by Razer’s words, it’s really more of a desk PC. It comes with a custom PC with the latest Intel CPU and Nvidia GPU, housed in a slim chassis that magnetically snaps in under the glass tabletop. However, there are no words on the modularity of the core PC itself. So while it is technically a desk PC, the weightage is more on the desk side when it comes to modularity, with PC accessories integrating with the desk setup easily.

Of course, there is RGB. The desk is lined with LEDs that work via Razer Chroma. The real kicker is that the desk has a screen attached to it. You can get an OLED display in two sizes — 65-inch and 77-inch. It’s a concept, so we may never actually see something like this on sale from Razer, but we also might.

Razer Enki Pro HyperSense — A haptic feedback-enabled gaming chair

The Razer Enki Pro is already a gaming chair that exists, and Razer is now adding its HyperSense haptic system to it. Razer has partnered up with D-Box for the haptic system, which integrates into the chair and has native support for over 2,200 games.

The haptic system comes with 65,000 variations, tactile feedback of +/- 1 G-Force, and the ability to create 1.5 inches of vertical and backward tilt in the seat. Synchronization is real-time, with promised responsiveness of up to 5ms. You’re also getting a Razer Chroma-powered headrest, which looks cool if nothing else.

There are no pricing or availability details revealed yet, but it’s fair to assume we will see this chair on sale sometime soon, unlike the aforementioned modular desk.
