CES 2018 is now on-going and our series of articles covering the biggest tech show on earth are now dropping! Check them out HERE.
2017 indeed is the year of RGB and that goes on forward to 2018, starting off with Razer’s announcement of partnership with manufacturer giant Philips, to integrate their Philips Hue Entertainment API with Razer’s Chroma lighting, today at CES 2018 in Las Vegas.
“Razer Chroma is the world’s largest lighting ecosystem for gaming devices, and with Philips Hue, we are transforming the gaming experience in the home,” Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan said.
With that said, Razer users will be able to sync capable Philips Hue smart lighting with Razer Chroma-enabled laptops and peripherals. What’s more amazing is that it also dynamically change lighting effects, depending on what happens within the game you’re playing, a feature that was seen already by Chroma users on some games such as Overwatch and Quake.
Imagine your lighting at home syncing to what’s going on in your game?
But of course, for all of this to work, you will need a Philips Hue V2 bridge equipped with the latest software update, apart from the actual color-capable Philips Hue lights and your Razer Chroma gear.
Starting tomorrow, you will be able to add the Philips Hue functionality to the Razer Synapse 3 software (or when the software update drops, realistically.)
