[CES 2018] Pretty much all of Razer’s gaming accessories and peripherals come with lights built into them, which the company has then sent into overdrive with the Chroma-enabled devices. Now if you’re looking to truly complete your LED-filled gaming room, Razer and Philips have teamed up to make that a reality.
What Razer has done is that they have integrated the Philips Hue Entertainment API into the Razer Chroma lighting ecosystem. According to Razer, “Gamers will be able to sync their Philips Hue color-capable smart lighting with their Razer Chroma-enabled devices, including laptops, keyboards, mice and mousepads, and enjoy light effects that enhance their gameplay and content. Game developers will be able to create lighting effects that change dynamically during gameplay.”
As you can see in the video above, that would be a good example of what gamers can expect to accomplish if they were to setup their Hue lights in a similar manner, and sync it with their Razer Chroma devices. To be fair this isn’t exactly a new concept, as several years ago, Philips did something similar with the Xbox One.
Of course this setup is probably not for everyone since not everyone might have the need for an LED-filled room. However if you do, note that games such as Overwatch, Quake Champions, Factorio, and Killing Floor 2 are some of the games that have already adopted support for it.
