Razer has announced Project Brooklyn, their second gaming chair after the Razer Iskur. On top of that they also announced Project Hazel, Razer’s own brand of gaming-themed face masks for dealing the still-ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. They announced these concepts as part of their CES 2021 line-up.
Project Brooklyn is a gaming chair that combines technology from various Razer products to create a concept chair with a built-in display. It comes complete with cable-routing features to make sure it never trips on itself delivering you immersive gaming experiences.
It comes with a 60″ OLED screen panoramically wrapped around the chair, creating an immersive experience using technology based off of the Razer Raptor monitors.
On top of that, it features Razer’s developing haptic feedback technology. Razer says the chair will have this feedback built along the frame of the chair, allowing users to increase their level of immersion across their whole body.
Of course, the chair also has Razer Chroma RGB lighting built all along the chair, programmable to sync with your gameplay and customizable to suit your needs. It also features many of the comfort innovations of the Razer Iskur, such as modular 4D armrests. It also has collapsible trays so you can game with either a mouse and keyboard or just with a controller.
Since this is product is still in concept phase, Razer doesn’t have an exact ETA on when Project Brooklyn will hit stores. However, they said they’ll be getting feedback from Esport athletes as well as influencers to make sure they make a product up to Razer’s standards of quality.
Razer’s CES 2021 presentation wasn’t all about futuristic chairs though, as they also introduced concepts to deal with the very real present. Razer showed off Project Hazel, Razer’s own self-produced face masks.
Razer is iterating on the N95 face mask to incorporate various smart technologies to reduce the inconvenience of wearing a mask.
According to Razer it will feature detachable and rechargeable active ventilators and Smart Pods that regulate airflow for optimal breathability. It will also feature filters that can be disinfected and replaced, as part of Razer’s efforts to reduce the waste associated with disposable masks.
With Project Hazel, Razer says they also want to overcome the muffling problem with face masks, by having built-in microphones to amplify your voice.
Razer are also being quite accessibility-minded with their concept for Project Hazel, wanting the mask to be see-through so those wearing it can still have their lips read by those who need it.
Similar to Project Brooklyn, it will also incorporate the Razer Chroma RGB lighting, giving ensuring your own bio-safety a uniquely Razer touch.
