Acer Predator Thronos Gaming Chair hands-on: Gloriously Excessive

Acer Predator Thronos Gaming Chair hands-on: Gloriously Excessive

The Acer Predator Thronos Gaming Chair is something out of a sci-fi movie - or perhaps your wildest at-home arcade dreams. It's like I'm one of the Sovereign from Marvel Comics - in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, where they remotely control spaceships from their super-advanced full-sized consoles. Or one of those kids in the movie TOYS, controlling war machines from the comfort of their own gaming chairs - or something like that. In any case, this is pretty awesome.

HTC VIVE Pro Eye hands-on: More than just eye-tracking

This week we got the opportunity to try out the newest in innovative VR tech from HTC, the HTC VIVE Pro Eye. This device looks a whole lot like the standard Vive Pro on the outside. In fact you might mistake one for the other, except for the bright blue outline around one element at the front of the headset. From the inside, it's a whole new world.

Acer Predator Triton 900 Hands-on: Flipping out on gaming excess

Acer Predator Triton 900 Hands-on: Flipping out on gaming excess

We got the chance to get up close and personal with the Predator Triton 900 this week at CES 2019. This Acer-made computer brings gaming power with a robust (read: not made just to be thin and light) laptop with a transforming appearance. The display does a flip. Instead of being relegated to one open position, this laptop flips on a hinge and locks in in several different positions, making it an ideal candidate for one serious gamer's mobile-yet-PC gaming rig.

Razer HyperSense devices hands-on: From THX sound to Lofelt haptic feedback

It's time to feel the rumble on all your parts - so says Razer, and their newest ecosystem brand Razer HyperSense. Razer HyperSense is to haptic feedback what Razer Chroma is to multicolor LED lighting. The first demonstration of this system was presented to us at CES 2019 with a collection of devices made by Razer, Lofelt, and SUBPAC, too.

Razer Turret for Xbox One: Hands-on and First Impressions

There's a new keyboard and mouse combo out in the wild, and it's made by Razer, teamed up with Microsoft, and it's aimed at Xbox One. This is the "Razer Turret for Xbox One", a device that's sort of like a second-gen Razer Turret - but one made for a more traditional, full-sized accessory-loving gamer. This is far more of a gaming keyboard fo the living room without compromises than the original - and again, it's made for Xbox One.

Razer Tomahawk Elite hands-on: PC gaming, gull-wing doors

Razer Tomahawk Elite hands-on: PC gaming, gull-wing doors

The Razer Tomahawk is an exercise in excess, and not truly meant for this world in its current form. Two versions of the PC case exist, both with their own level of wild and beautiful. There's also a third case that's new from Razer this week that we've not yet seen up close: the new Lian li O11 Dynamic Designed by Razer. The last of these will be the first of its kind to feature Chroma lighting with full customizability.

Razer Raptor monitor hands-on: Gaming screen made unique

Razer Raptor monitor hands-on: Gaming screen made unique

Today we're getting up close and personal with the Razor Raptor monitor - a display that's apparently quite a few years in the making. This machine has a 27-inch panel and a super sleek exterior - and barely a bezel to speak of. This machine is one of Razer's design concepts that the company is known to bring to CES - the place where they often wow tech blogs with devices that may or may not ever find their way to the final cutting floor.
