Despite the fact that smartphones gained a large share in the gaming market, PC games with more adaptable user interface are holding the number one position, being in front of mobiles, tablets and even consoles.
Having that in mind, Razer, the popular computer peripherals developer that focuses mainly on products for gamers, has presented Switchblade. The company's latest creation, made in collaboration with Intel, is a PC desktop concept for mobile gaming that measures 172 x 115 x 25mm (6.77 x 4.52 x 0.98 inches).
Keyboard and mouse are definitely the main strengths of desktop gaming. However, the major drawback is portability.
In order to solve the problem with the keyboard, Razer has equipped its new device with a dynamic tactile keyboard. The latter adjusts its configuration according to the current game being played.
See-through keys, placed over the LCD panel, show game-related icons along with letters and numbers. Besides, their layout can be different, depending on the specific situation in the game.
Razer decided to use an ultra-sensitive multi-touch screen on the seven-inch upper display to solve the problem with the computer mouse. However, if you are still more into physical gaming mice then you can easily attach one using a USB 3.0 port. In addition, the device features a 3.5mm headphone jack, mini HDMI and mic ports.
It is worth mentioning that Razor Switchblade concept includes an Intel Atom processor and runs Windows 7. Razer's idea was to create a device that would cater to all game genres and feature both Wi-Fi and 3G.
