For CES 2021, Razer revealed two concepts for new products, including a smart N95 mask and a new type of gaming chair. Dubbed Project Brooklyn, the chair transforms into an immersive gaming station with an OLED “surround” screen. Built with carbon fiber and adorned with RGB lighting, it is designed to be a “cockpit”-style chair.
“Project Brooklyn is an exciting concept developed on the true essence of a fully immersive gaming station,” Razer co-founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan said in a press release. “The haptic feedback, visuals, and overall functional design with attention to ergonomics will deliver a one-of-a-kind gameplay experience.”
Project Brooklyn takes design inspiration from the Razer Iskur, a gaming chair released in October 2020 that prioritizes comfort. Meanwhile, the adjustable platform of the chair takes inspiration from the Razer Raptor monitor, supporting a 60″ full surround OLED display.
Additionally, Project Brooklyn incorporates Razer’s audio-driven haptic feedback prototype that was first shown off at CES 2019, so it vibrates differently depending on what you’re currently doing in-game–similarly to the PlayStation 5’s DualSense controller, just for an entire chair.
Alongside Project Brooklyn, Razer also revealed its plans for Project Hazel, a smart mask. Project Hazel is designed with an airtight seal and ventilators, ideal for the gamer who really doesn’t want to get sick. A built-in microphone also amplifies your voice so that you’re not muffled while wearing the mask.
