Tech Industry: Razer Switchblade concept video

2:40 /

A first look at the Switchblade, a mobile PC gaming prototype portable with its own customizable keyboard.

-PC gaming has always been impossible in a portable form factor. So, they took a familiar, traditional piece of hardware, the keyboard, and developed an all new user interface designed just for mobile PC gaming, and quite frankly, the result is just phenomenal. One of the biggest problems with bringing PC gaming to a mobile platform is replicating the mouse and keyboard user interface in a handheld format, and we've solved that by combining an ultra-sensitive multitouch screen with a tactile adaptive keyboard, a keyboard that changes and adapts on the fly with the games you play. We are always pushing the boundaries and our user interface designers have reinvented PC gaming with the Switchblade and we worked closely with Intel to design the Switchblade on a new Intel Atom platform. -PC gaming continues to attract innovation with rich 3D graphics, high definition video and lifelike animation. The powerful Intel Atom processor, combined with Razer's expertise in bringing gaming solutions to market, will make it possible for consumers to have the PC gaming experience in mobile devices. -Take World of Warcraft, for example. With the Switchblade, not only can you interact with what's happening on screen, but having all of your skills and commands magically laid out in the keyboard. That's just a whole new level of experience. -The adaptive tactile keyboard brings the functionality of a full-sized gaming keyboard into a tiny, portable form factor without sacrificing the need for full-sized keys, but where it becomes sheer genius is its ability to intelligently configure itself to suit the control system of any game. Have it opened flat out like a portable gaming device or set on a desk like a regular PC, the Switchblade was designed to be the perfect form factor for gaming, browsing, or media playback, be it at a cafe or on the move. We decided it was time to step up our own game through something entirely new and revolutionize the way you interact with your games and computing. Switchblade opens the doors to exciting future technological possibilities, but we're staying true to our core philosophy, to give gamers the edge anytime, anywhere.
