Eyes-on with the Razer and NVIDIA Booths at CES 2013
The annual Consumer Electronics Show is wrapping up here in Las Vegas. And while gaming doesn’t have an enormous presence at the show since E3 spun out of it years ago, there are still big players showing off the latest gaming hardware (check out Devin Connors’ extensive coverage.)
Both Razer and NVIDIA had major announcements this week, unveiling new shiny gaming units. Razer’s Switchblade Windows 8 hybrid (previously dubbed Project Fiona) can work as a tablet, a laptop with adaptive keyboard attachment, or a gaming console with handlebar controllers. It was the only item on display at their booth, but we couldn’t get enough of it. A keyboard that changes key assignments depending what game you’re playing? Touchscreen capabilities while playing it like a laptop? Sign us up.
NVIDIA surprised the industry this week with an Android-based handheld console, Project Shield, powered by the new Tegra-4 chip due that can display games on attached 5 inch monitor or mirror gameplay to your TV. This wasn’t the only thing they were showing this year. They are pushing into automotive tech with in-dash screen technology.
We can’t wait to see what they both have in store for us at E3 later this year.
