Razer Unveils Project Sophia And Emki Pro Hypersense
Razer introduced Project Sophia, the world’s first fully modular gaming desk concept that adapts to meet the needs of any user. Razer also revealed the Enki Pro HyperSense, an advanced gaming chair incorporating high-fidelity haptics, allowing users to experience a new dimension of immersion in gaming.
With working from home more widespread than ever, many people find it a challenge to configure their set-ups for the multiple different uses required of their systems throughout the day. From being a pure office productivity set-up through to a gaming, streaming or editing suite, each use has a host of extra peripherals and devices to enhance and improve that experience.
With a highly adaptable, modular design allowing users to quickly reconfigure their workspace for the tasks at hand – be that churning through emails and Word docs for work, blasting through enemies on their way to the objective when gaming, or tearing it up on Twitch with their squad whilst streaming to their viewers, Project Sophia provides a seamless solution to all of these challenges.
Fully modular. Completely customizable.
Central to Project Sophia’s flexibility is a highly modifiable desk capable of supporting up to 13 separate modules for an untold level of personalization. This allows each section to be configured with an array of task-specific components, such as secondary screens, system monitoring tools, touch-screen hotkey panels, pen tablets and audio mixer units, or even external capture cards, so the user’s set-up can be reconfigured in seconds for the specific situation.
“Project Sophia is our futuristic vision of a multi-purpose gaming and workstation set-up which meets the very different needs of a variety of PC uses, negating the need to move between workspaces,”
“The hot-swappable modular system allows users to quickly reconfigure their desk with near infinite flexibility, adapting Project Sophia not just for the task at hand, but also to the user’s particular preference. This is the future of the battlestation.”Richard Hashim, VP of Growth at Razer
Desktop power. In your desk.
At the heart of Project Sophia is a customized PCB fitted with cutting-edge core components, including the latest Intel processor and NVIDIA GPU to support the most resource-intensive tasks. To maximize desk space, all of this is housed in a slim chassis that magnetically snaps in underneath the glass tabletop, which can be just as easily detached to install new upgrades, allowing the user to quickly create the system required for the task at hand.
Modules have been designed for all types of users, with creators being able to slot in touchscreen digitizers, tablets, and creative input tools to streamline hotkeys and macros, while gamers can instead focus on modules for high-fidelity audio and blistering visual performance by adding a THX Surround Sound system and high refresh rate monitor.
Streamers can transform Project Sophia into a full broadcast setup complete with camera, microphone, and stream control, while those looking for a more efficient work environment can multitask effectively and comfortably with a productivity hotkey module, wireless charger, and cup warmer.
