Project Sophia is Razer’s modular gaming desktop concept with an attached OLED display. It comes with a custom PC with an Intel processor and an Nvidia GPU and has 13 modules for various functions. Razer also revealed a haptic gaming chair called the Enki Pro HyperSense.
Razer yesterday announced an update to its popular Blade gaming laptop lines. While the update was a pretty big update, it wasn’t the most exciting CES 2022 announcement Razer had in store for us. It comes today, in the form of a crazy modular gaming desktop PC and a gaming chair with haptics for an immersive experience.
Razer today unveiled Project Sophia, a modular gaming desktop PC concept that aims to merge your desktop PC setup into one large, modular entity. To go along with it, this is a real product you can buy: the Razer Enki Pro HyperSense, a gaming chair that incorporates a haptic feedback system.
Project Sophia – A Modular Gaming Desktop
Razer looks to multitask with this one. Project Sophia is basically an editable desktop. Razer says it can take up to 13 modules depending on the purpose of the system. These modules include secondary displays, system monitoring tools, touch screen shortcut panels, pen tablets, audio mixing units, and external capture cards.

While it is a desktop computer in Razer’s words, it is actually more of a desktop computer. It comes with a custom PC with the latest Intel processors and Nvidia GPUs, housed in a slim chassis that magnetically snaps under the glass lid. However, there are no words on the modularity of the base PC itself. So while it’s technically a desktop PC, the weight is more on the desktop side when it comes to modularity, with PC accessories that easily fit into a desktop setup.
Of course there is RGB. The desk is clad in LEDs that are powered by Razer Chroma. The real advantage is that the office is equipped with a screen. You can get an OLED screen in two sizes: 65 inches and 77 inches. It’s a concept, so we may never see something like this for sale at Razer, but we could too.
Razer Enki Pro HyperSense: a gaming chair with haptic feedback
The Razer Enki Pro is already a gaming chair, and Razer is now adding its HyperSense haptic system to it. Razer has partnered with D-Box for the haptic system, which is integrated into the chair and natively supports over 2,200 games.

The haptic system comes with 65,000 variations, +/- 1 G-Force tactile feedback, and the ability to create 1.5 inches of vertical and back tilt in the seat. Synchronization is done in real time, with a promised responsiveness of up to 5 ms. You also get a Razer Chroma-powered headrest, which looks great to say the least.
No details on pricing or availability have been revealed yet, but it’s fair to assume that this chair will be on sale soon, unlike the modular desk mentioned above.
