A new Razer modular desk was revealed at CES 2022, which the company is touting as “the gaming battlestation of the future,” and it naturally includes RGB lighting.
The gist of the new Razer modular desk – which they’re calling Project Sophia right now – is the standard-sized desk has thirteen slots under a big glass top that let you customize the setup to your liking and needs. The modules vary from system monitoring tools, tablet-style pens to write with, extra screens, audio mixer units, external capture cards – and even a cup warmer. The entire desktop is also lined with a bright Chroma RGB strip.
Naturally you’ll be able to swap the core PC hardware in and out with their “magnetically” connected chassis underside, which houses the main guts like its custom PCB board and a big old Nvidia graphics card. The photos show off the concept design as something like the innards of a Razer Blade laptop ripped out and slapped underneath a post-modern desk.
Razer gave examples of the modular nature of the potential desk setup with different types of users with their own professional needs like gamers (obviously), creators, streamers, professional workers, and more. Each setup has different modules installed in the undercarriage that let them get access to various tools for producing or consuming content.
“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,” said Richard Hashim, VP of Growth at Razer. “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.”
