LAS VEGAS--The gadget orgy that is CES always throws up some pretty weird tech concepts, and the 2011 show is no different. Razer has just come up with the concept for the Switchblade, a portable gaming system with a multitouch display and an adaptive LCD-based keyboard that changes dynamically depending on what you're playing.
Razer developed the Switchblade idea because, in the words of Chief Executive Min-Liang Tan, PC gaming "has always been impossible in a portable form factor." Apart from, y'know, on laptops, Netbooks, tablets, and other devices that Razer seems never to have heard of.
The Switchblade is about the size of a Netbook. It has a 7-inch multitouch display and an unusual keyboard that's actually a set of transparent "buttons" laid atop an LCD screen. The graphics shown on each key can change dynamically, depending on what's being shown on the screen.
