D-BOX is partnering with Razer™ (Razer), the world’s leading lifestyle brand for gamers, to design the first concept Razer gaming chair featuring D-BOX’s high-fidelity haptic technology. The prototype project showcased in Las Vegas creates immersive touch-sensory feedback for lifelike sensations based on cues from games and a variety of fully integrated entertainment mediums. This concept product showcases direct haptic feedback from passive and interactive content ranging from games to streaming libraries featuring over 2,000 movies and TV series. The chair can be seen in the Razer booth #15076 in the Central Hall at the Consumer Electronics Show until January 8, 2022.
According to Newzoo, 2021’s global games market will generate revenues of $175.8 billion, on track to Surpass $200 Billion by 2023. By the end of the year, there will be 2.9 billion players worldwide. This market now earns more revenue than the film and music industries combined because of the rising popularity of video games in all corners of the globe and among all age groups. Players are spending more and more time gaming, and regard for its social and entertainment values are growing apace.
“Razer is constantly looking to innovate and to improve the gaming experience. Haptics open up a world of possibilities, be it via chairs, headsets or any other accessory, and we’re still tapping into the full potential of how this evolving technology will enhance the gaming experience,” said Jeevan Aurol, associate director of product marketing at Razer.
“Haptics are part of the gaming industry’s future, so working with an experienced industry leader like D-BOX was an obvious choice for us.”
