Razer Unveils Project Sophia: A Desk And Gaming Chair

The R&D team at Razer revealed Project Sophia, a modular gaming desk that can be easily reconfigured for different tasks. It features 13 interchangeable modular sections that allow the desk to be set up for office work, gaming, Twitch streaming, video editing, or just about any other task typically carried out while sitting at a computer.

The modules allow for secondary screens, system monitoring tools, touch-screen hotkey panels, pen tablets and audio mixer units, an external capture card, or a surround sound system, to name a few. Razer says it should only take a few seconds to reconfigure Project Sophia. The modular desk has a glass tabletop, custom PCB, and Intel and Nvidia products. The Razer Chroma RGB system is also integrated, and LEDs line the edges of the desk allowing for a custom light show to be created.

Razer has also teamed up with haptics specialist D-Box to modify Razer’s Enki Pro chair. The new version is called the Enki Pro Hypersense, and it’s described as “an advanced gaming chair incorporating high-fidelity haptics, allowing users to experience a new dimension of immersion in gaming.”

Razer is promising support for over 2,200 games, movies, and music titles. Even if games aren’t directly supported, the haptic feedback should still add something to the experience of playing them. In total, 65,000 haptic variations are possible using +/-1 G-Force and up to 1.5 inches of vertical and backward tilt. The response time is just 5ms, allowing the chair to stay synchronized with the on-screen action.

Project Sophia and the Enki Pro Hypersense are concept products for now, but both may end up launching at some point. The chair looks to be the more deliverable of the two considering Razer is already gearing up to manufacture the non-haptic version.
