As part of the Razer Tomahawk Gaming Desktop you naturally get the case - but filled with all the hardware required to make it a powerful gaming PC.

Also announced, the Razer Sila 5G Home Router
that will feature an in-built and rechargable battery allowing it to become a 5G hotspot in addition to a specific Gaming Mode that will prioritise, well, gaming devices like consoles and PCs. All controllable via a dedicated Android and iOS app.
Next comes the Razer Kishi
mobile controller, that really only needs an image to properly convey what it is. That being traditional pad-style controllers attachable to smart phones where the end result is a Nintendo Switch-like look and feel.
Okay, so maybe it needs more than a single image as there's a cloud component where Razer is partnering with NVIDIA for GeForce NOW support - to allow for the streaming of high-end PC titles on a smart phone like Razer's own Razer Phone 2. That said the Kishi will support both Android and iOS.
Finally we get to the very CES unveiling of the Razer Eracing Simulator concept.
Described as follows:
Running Project CARS Pro, the concept model features technology from Vesaro, Simpit, Fanatec and Synthesis VR, creating a thrilling and immersive eracing setup with a 202-degree projection system, a hydraulic racing platform, full manual controls, and a steering wheel with paddle shift.
The simulator chassis is built with an ultra-strong hand-crafted center core designed around an advanced modular upgrade system, allowing for many simulation scenarios. The center core sits on a motion platform powered by two actuators and a gaming control box for a professional racing training setup that maps terrain surfaces, G-force and sounds into motion for a completely immersive experience. Real surround visuals provided by Simpit come from two Full-HD projectors beaming onto a 128-inch custom black projection surface with 202-degree field-of-view with vibrant colours and deep blacks.
Driver controls from Fanatec feature an anodised aluminium and carbon fiber steering wheel sheathed in smooth leather, magnetic paddles and adjustable buttons for gear shifting and precise driver aide, paired to a three-pedal system below. The racing harness simulates the effects of G-forces by applying pressure, allowing the body to feel the fast acceleration speeds and tightest corners.
This paves the way for potential use in eracing competitions in the future - and possibly for those car game enthusiasts that are also sitting on a Scrooge McDuck pile of expendable income. In other words, it's high-tech stuff.
