Razer unveiled its vision for the future of gaming and home computing at CES 2022, with the announcement of Project Sophia, the world’s first true gaming desk concept, and the Enki Pro HyperSense, an advanced gaming chair with built-in high-fidelity haptics from D-BOX. Created by Razer’s visionary R&D department, both Project Sophia and the Enki Pro HyperSense introduce new innovative solutions to level up any home setup.
With working from home more widespread than ever, many people find it a challenge to configure their set-ups for the multiple different uses required of their systems throughout the day. From being a pure office productivity set-up through to a gaming, streaming or editing suite, each use has a host of extra peripherals and devices to enhance and improve that experience.
Project Sophia
Razer is looking to fit all that into a highly adaptable, modular design allowing users to quickly reconfigure their workspace for the tasks at hand. This is the promise behind Project Sophia, the world’s first gaming desk concept that supports up to 13 separate modules for an untold level of personalization. This allows each section to be configured with an array of task-specific components, such as secondary screens, system monitoring tools, touch-screen hotkey panels, pen tablets and audio mixer units, or even external capture cards, so the user’s set-up can be reconfigured in seconds for the specific situation.
Powering all these modules is a customized PCB fitted with cutting-edge core components, including the latest Intel processor and NVIDIA GPU to support the most resource-intensive tasks. All of this is housed in a slim chassis that magnetically snaps in underneath the glass table-top, which can be just as easily detached to install new upgrades.
Modules have been designed for all types of users, with creators being able to slot in touchscreen digitizers, tablets, and creative input tools to streamline hotkeys and macros, along with a full-fledged THX Surround Sound system and high refresh rate monitor. You also get similar modules for people who do a log of video conferencing, with a full broadcast setup available, complete with camera, microphone, and stream control, along with a productivity hotkey module, wireless charger, and even a cup warmer.
Finishing off the look are a series of in-built LEDs that surround a next-gen 65” OLED display that delivers amazing colour and clarity. All these modules and other attachments make Project Sophia a highly adaptable and versatile design, that can easily transform into the optimal configuration for gaming, creating, streaming, and working.
Enki Pro HyperSense
For a fully immersive experience, Razer also announced the Enki Pro HyperSense, an advanced gaming chair incorporating high-fidelity haptics. Based on the popular Enki Pro chair design, the Enki Pro HyperSense features a haptic feedback unit developed with D-BOX, along with an integrated Chroma RGB headrest that allows users to personalize their chair when in use.
This haptic system comes with native support for over 2,200 games, movies and music titles, including games such as F1 2021, Forza Horizon 5 and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. This means players will not only be able to feel every corner on the track, but will also be enveloped in their game surroundings thanks to the physical feedback provided by the Enki Pro HyperSense haptics. Even games not directly supported through the software can still be enjoyed with haptic feedback through Direct Input Haptics, where controller, keyboard and mouse-inputs will generate physical feedback when used.
The Enki Pro HyperSense is powered by an advanced haptic engine that has been developed to simulate a range of vibrations, textures, and motions. With 65,000 haptic variations it has the tactile feedback of +/- 1 G-Force and can create 1.5 inches of vertical and backward tilt in your seat. Real time synchronization ensures that all the feedback is delivered immediately, with a responsiveness of up to 5ms.
Even the design is optimized for near-perfect ergonomic support, with a 22” ultrawide seat base, 100 degrees shoulder arches and built-in lumbar arch, for optimal weight distribution and ideal posture. Using the latest

technologies, both Project Sophia and the Enki Pro HyperSense add new dimensions to any gaming and/or workspace, offering a glimpse into the future of the modern home setup.
