Razer has just showcased a new ecosystem during CES 2019 that brings gaming immersion to a whole new level.
It was first implemented on the Razer Nari Ultimate. A 7.1 virtual surround sound headphone that vibrates based on the sound and music played.
Razer expended the haptic feedback ecosystem, calling it HyperSense. It comprises of the Nari Ultimate headphones, an unnamed mouse, keyboard wrist rest, and a chair.
The difference between Razer’s implementation and regular haptic feedback comes in the feedback drivers.
Traditional drivers would spin a weight which in turn, gives a rumble-like feedback to the user. For example, the feedback felt on a PS4 controller.
Razer’s implementation will feel a lot like the vibration you would feel on the latest iPhone and Nintendo Switch’s Joy-Con.
Unlike traditional ways of implementing feedback, this new haptic driver requires no integration with the game and works across different platforms. So all you need to do is just plug them in and start gaming.
Razer intended the system to be modular, giving you the freedom to add and remove devices depending on your preference.
The ecosystem is still at its experimental stage and is not meant for sale just yet. However, if you like to experience a taste of what HyperSense can offer, the Razer Nari Ultimate headphone is your only option for now.
