Of course, to be clear, Project Hazel is just a concept project and it’s extremely unlikely to hit the market in its current form, if at all. That said, aside from the cheesy sci-fi aesthetic, it’s nice to see companies thinking about ways to deal with some of the common complaints about masks, given that they have become a staple part of the kit. everyday life.
Razer’s other concept this year is Project Brooklyn, an all-in-one immersive gaming chair. The idea is an ergonomic chair with integrated haptic feedback and a retractable, wrap-around curved screen. Visuals would be provided by a 60-inch roll-up OLED display that retracts and folds back into the chair when not in use. Likewise, the armrests adjust and retract as needed depending on whether you’re playing on PC with mouse and keyboard or console with a controller. Again, this is just a conceptual product that will likely never exist as an actual product, at least in its current form.
As for the actual products, at CES, Razer also showcased new versions of its Blade 15 and 17 gaming laptops, including with a new 1440p screen option.
