Some of us still aren’t sold on the idea of a gaming chair, but what if it came with a beautiful, immersive display? Razer has done just that with its new Project Brooklyn concept, which combines a traditional gaming chair with an awesome, 60-inch wraparound OLED panel that can fold back at the touch of a button when it’s not in use. We have no idea whether Razer actually intends on selling one to consumers (is there even a working prototype?), but the idea seems pretty cool for both games and movie watching.

“Project Brooklyn is a cutting-edge gaming chair built with carbon fiber and RGB lighting, transforming easily into a fully immersive gaming station complete with panoramic visuals from a 60” rollout display, riveting tactile feedback built into the seat, and 4D armrests that roll out into adjustable peripheral tables,” Razer wrote in a press release. “The existing types of all-in-one chairs that deliver ‘cockpit’ style seating and mounted hardware are typically room-sized and the costs are astronomical.”

“The adjustable platform on which the chair sits is complete with cable-routing and takes design cues from the Razer Raptor monitor. Mounted from the chair’s backbone and deployable with the touch of a button is a 60” full surround OLED display for stunning visual detail. Folding into the chair back when not in use, the roll-out display assembly plunges you into the center of the action with crisp detail and a savory panoramic experience.”

On a semi-related note, Razer has also decided to capitalize on the ongoing pandemic with what it is calling the world’s smartest mask, Project Hazel. This is a unique face mask that not only includes interior lighting and RGB effects, but a built-in microphone to amplify the wearer’s voice.

“Further preparing consumers for the new normal in the road ahead, the mask concept design innovates with N95 medical-grade respirator protection using detachable and rechargeable active ventilators and Smart Pods that regulate airflow for optimal breathability,” the company noted. “Its high bacterial filtration efficiency (BFE) Smart Pods filter at least 95% of airborne particles and have a high fluid resistance.”

  1. "unique face mask that not only includes interior lighting and RGB effects, but a built-in microphone to amplify the wearer’s voice"

    Never go full retard.

  2. lol, I unveiled a concept chair inside a sphere, mounted on 3 axis motor system simulating bumps/jumps/landing etc.
    The sphere can rotate left/right, forward/back to simulate up to 1G sustained using gravity.
    The inside of the sphere is the screen.

    It wasnt unveiled to many people though, a few friends lol.
    At the time there was no chance of building it so I didnt push the boat out.
    Its a goer though if somebody has the space, cash and equipment. Oh and you can persuade mfrs + game witers to support its nuances :)
    I prefer this.
