I’ve always dreamed of a control console from a Star Trek starship, and Razer’s new CES concept design is a perfect example of the features.

Then, there’s something similar to it It’s A the CES 2022 Concept design idea that’s new and utterly absurd. I’ll show the opportunity to you Razer’s Project Sophia, a modular gaming desk which promises that it will be “the gaming battle station of the future” but still appears to be a huge laptop.

 

The idea behind it is a gaming table with a an acrylic top, underneath which you are able to put into 13 separate modules that allow you to customize your gaming setup. These modules can range from the system monitor gubbins to secondary, tertiary, or perhaps even screens for quandary pen tablets, the cup warmer.

If I’d like an iced tea that is kept warm, I place my tea on top of my GeForce RTX3090 that is built into my desk. This is a great solution however it doesn’t appreciate spills. Maybe a glass-topped warming device could be a better choice. Thanks, Razer.

Project Sophia will provide desktop power when placed on a desk, but the actual device looks quite a lot like it could have mobile components. It appears exactly like someone took the PCB from a Blade laptop and placed it on a table.

There’s an idea that I can be a part of.

The idea of desktop performance remains, but today’s mobile CPUs and GPUs are so much like the more powerful counterparts that they can deliver the most gaming giggling. We’ve seen this in the most recent hardware announced by AMD Nvidia well as Intel has already announced in gaming laptops to be released in the next few months.

The sleek design made possible by these components makes this Project Sophia desk look pretty and slick. Of course, it’s Chroma RGB equipped with a large white band of light that runs around the entire desktop.

Perhaps streamers will want to track the stream’s production and will require touchscreen hot keys to toggle between different things without resorting to something as horrendous as physically Loupedeck or Elgato Stream Deck with physical buttons! How shabby! number of these are unnecessary distractions from the main gaming event that is on screen.

That’s right I’m not wanting to burn my palm when trying to reach for my mouse to rest my hands upon the module for warming cups. However, I am wondering what you could do to increase the speed, or turn it into a single-ring stove and cook eggs right on your desktop.

Also, I’d wager that very that a few of you have clean desktops. With all the various display and modules available included in Project Sophia, what’s the best way to go about it? Project Sophia concept, where’s the rest of that going to be put?

The main appeal of the Razer concept design is its modularity and the possibility of attaching a magnetically attached array of these various modules to the bottom of your glass desk, providing you with access to the system’s information hotkeys, information about the system, and other accessories that can be customized to your requirements. Razer offers examples of layouts that include The Gamer, The Creator, The Streamer, and The WFH, each with various configurations to suit their preferences.


To be honest and say that, I’m not sure there’s a necessity for many of these modules. I’m talking about the fact that I don’t require to know the speed that GPU and CPU are operating all the time. If it were, the display on the top of the NZXT Kraken cooler would show this, not that GIF that shows Holly of Red Dwarf that’s currently looping within my rig.

I’m fortunate that I have a gaming table with an integrated PC and a glass top. But mine’s more chunky than that. Lian Li DK04 has full-size PC components. It’s also a great place to leave things piled up on top, although I can understand that the image above could make some people shiver.
Yet I am unable to help but want to have the Project Sophia desk for my own, despite all of this.

Forget the 65-inch OLED screen it has strapped to the end of it (which only adds to the massive laptop-on-legs aesthetic); the fact that it looks like the control console from a shadowy Section 31 ship in Star Trek means my unrelentingly nerdy side needs this in my life.
Contrary to the outdated Alienware concept devices, Dell’s gaming arm was showcased earlier this week. Razer’s yet-to-be-released desktop is hardly helpful in reality; however, it comes with the one aspect a design concept needs desirability.
