At CES 2021, Razer announced two new concept devices with Project Hazel and Project Brooklyn.
Razer is calling their Project Hazel, “the World’s Smartest Face Mask.” The concept uses an N95 medical-grade respirator with rechargeable active ventilators and Smart Pods.
“Razer acknowledges the uncertainty in the road ahead, and so it was our duty to help protect our community members and prepare them from invisible threats,” said Min-Liang Tan, co-founder and CEO of Razer. “The Project Hazel smart mask concept is intended to be functional, yet comfortable and useful for interacting with the world while maintaining a sociable aesthetic.”
The mask has a clear and transparent design, so those around you can read your lips. In addition, the mask has mics with Razer’s VoiceAmp Technology that amplifies your voice.
The charging box that the mask is stored in has a UV-light interior and wireless fast charging. Just like Razer’s other products, the mast also has its Chroma RGB lighting.
As of right now, Project Hazel is only a concept but could become a real product in the future.
The other concept is Project Brooklyn, which includes a gaming chair with carbon fibre and RGB lighting.
The trick up its sleeve is the 60-inch rollout curved OLED display. There’s also Razer HyperSense haptics (as featured in their Nari Ultimate headset) in the seat the shake while gaming.
The concept also has a modular 4D armrest that is collapsible to easily switch between PC gaming with a mouse and keyboard and console gaming.
“Project Brooklyn is an exciting concept developed on the true essence of a fully immersive gaming station,” said Min‐Liang Tan. “The haptic feedback, visuals and overall functional design with attention to ergonomics will deliver a one‐of‐a‐kind gameplay experience.”
Just like Project Hazel, the Project Brooklyn concept isn’t a real product yet but could be.
For now, there is Razer’s Iskur gaming chair.
In addition to the new concepts, Razer refreshed their Blade 15 and Blade Pro 17 with Nvidia’s 30 Series Laptop GPUs.
