During the recent Computex 2019, Acer has been honoured with seven 2019 Computex d&i awards in recognition for design excellence, in the categories of Gaming Hardware, Information and Communication Hardware, AR, VR and Content, and IoT categories. Among them, the Predator Thronos won the Computex d&i Gold award, while Predator Triton 900 is selected as one of the award winners too.
Here are the details for gaming-related award winners:
- Predator Thronos Gaming Chair
The Predator Thronos reimagines the gaming chair for a new level of gamer. Its steel structure is 1.5 meters tall and comes in menacing dual-tone black with white or blue accents. It puts the gamer in the game through deep impact vibration, where the chair vibrates upon in-game impact. The chair is adjustable and includes an ergonomic seat design, footrest, and a cabin that reclines up to 140 degrees, and supports three 27-inch gaming monitors and a space for a Predator gaming PC. Integrated with a Predator desktop and triple Predator monitors plus gadgets, the Thronos becomes more than a gaming chair – it’s a gamer’s cave.
Predator Triton 900
The Predator Triton 900 is a gaming notebook in an inventive form factor, featuring a CNC-machined Ezel Aero Hinge that flips, extends, or reclines the 17-inch display. Users can switch between four usage modes: The Triton series 900’s trackpad is placed beside the keyboard, giving users natural hand placement for gaming using both the keyboard and trackpad. It’s also amazingly thin at just 23.75 mm (0.94 inches).
Acer OJO 500 Windows Mixed Reality Headset
The first Windows Mixed Reality Headset to feature a detachable design, the Acer OJO 500’s head strap can be individually removed, making the headset easy to store and clean. It includes a built-in interpupillary distance (IPD) wheel and a patented smart phone app to measure IPD distance (the gap between the eye’s pupils). In a first for VR headsets, the integrated audio system uses a patented sound pipe design that directs sound from the built-in speakers toward the wearer’s ears.
