Project Sophia seems like something Tony Stark would make
Razer is known for being one of the best sources of gaming accessories. On top of their consistency, however, they have also been known to make some pretty experimental products over the years, from triple-screened laptops to LED air-purifying masks. A brand with such a stronghold in the peripherals market, it is important to recognize that they are constantly looking for new ways to innovate. They have now introduced us to a new, ambitious idea: a smart desktop.
The Consumer Electronics Show is where Razer shows off their prototypes, and lucky for us, CES 2022 is taking place this week from January 5-7. This time around, the brand presented their newest endeavor, a prototype dubbed Project Sophia. We have a 3D rendering of the prototype and a video clip. But it is enough to intrigue me. Razer calls it a “gaming table concept”, whatever that may mean. It looks straight out of a scifi movie.
It basically looks like a sleek desk with a huge screen attached to it, but where it really gets interesting is on the desktop itself — it’s modular, meaning pieces can be changed out. Razer claims that thirteen pieces can be interchanged, including secondary screens, audio mixing units and pen tablets.
The prototype will require an Intel Processor or Nvidia GPU in order to function. These are magnetically attached at the bottom of each desk. You can add on additional accessories such as microphones and cameras, wireless charging pads and even a cup warmer. It sounds like you wouldn’t even need to get up from your desk. It’s hard to say if this is a good or bad thing.
