Among its many announcements at CES today, Razer has unveiled its next gaming chair, the Enki Pro HyperSense. This new model takes the already luxurious setup of the Enki Pro it announced last Fall and adds in Razer’s high-fidelity haptics. For those not in the know, these are the same haptics you’ll find in a few different pairs of Razer’s gaming headsets. Like the Kraken V3 Pro.
Which means if you pair this chair with a headset that offers the same feature, you could be in for a more immersive entertainment experience. We use the word “entertainment” because the HyperSense isn’t just for games. According to Razer, it’s worked with various partners to deliver a more immersive experience for other forms of media.
The Enki Pro HyperSense isn’t limited to gaming
Feeling your games through your chair is an exciting though all on its own. But Razer took things a step further and added support for other forms of media too. Razer says the high-fidelity haptics in the Enki Pro HyperSense also support movies and music titles.
With many of the most popular streaming services showing support for the tech. Including Spotify, Disney Plus, Netflix, and more. Imagine watching the Witcher on Netflix and feeling the clang after every sword swing. Or every explosion in The Mandalorian. For games, Razer says there’s integrated support for titles like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Forza Horizon 5, and F1 2021 just to name a few.
Even games with no direct support for the HyperSense feature can benefit from the Direct Input Haptics. So you still feel some of the action. The way it works is through the inputs on your mouse, keyboard, and controller. Pressing certain keys will generate haptics felt through the chair.
All of this is powered by an advanced haptics engine that was designed to deliver a range of vibrations, textures, and motions.
Design wise everything should be the same as the Enki Pro and other Enki models. Like the 22-inch ultrawide seat base, and the Alcantara leather offered on the regular Pro model. Razer currently doesn’t have a price or launch date set for this chair. So consider this one of Razer’s concepts for now.
