The outlandish designs of gaming peripherals lend themselves towards sci-fi imaginings: Iâ€™ve personally seen Razerâ€™s Tartarus and Orbweaver keypads inÂ ArrowÂ andÂ Enderâ€™s Game. But the companyâ€™s latest concept device looks like it dropped right off the bridge of a warp-capable starship. Meet Project Brooklyn, Razerâ€™s concept for the future of PC gaming chairs and â€œbattlestations.â€�
The basic layout of Brooklyn echoes the more ridiculous gamer cockpits weâ€™ve seen over the last 10 years or so, like the Imperatorworks Thronos with its over-the-head monitor mount and tray for a mouse and keyboard. The big difference is that Brooklynâ€™s giant curved OLED screen rolls up and folds back into the chair itself, in a motion that might win a nod of approval from Tony Stark. The 60-inch widescreen panel would totally immerse the userâ€™s field of vision.
The interesting tech doesnâ€™t stop there. The chairâ€™s tray area deploys from the arm rest in different layouts, and folds away for entry and exit. The chair itself features haptic feedback motors (something Razerâ€™s experimented with before), and a carbon fiber body festooned with leather cushion areas. Power and connection cables exit from the base, in an array that matches the Raptor monitor. And of course, it wouldnâ€™t be a Razer product without RGB Chroma support.
Unlike the Hazel mask concept released earlier this week, Project Brooklyn doesnâ€™t seem feasible as a consumer product anytime in the near future. While none of its various components are straight-up impossible, that 60-inch rollable OLED panel alone would cost a kingâ€™s ransom â€¦ which is probably why this device only exists as a 3D render at the moment.
