Razer, an American gaming peripherals manufacturer, introduced its first modular PC at CES 2014 event, dubbed Project Christine.
The company says it has been working on Project Christine for the past two years. Currently a concept design by Razer, it is meant to enable easy upgrades to different components for the gamers according to their demands, eliminating the cumbersome job of installing new components on conventional PC builds.
The users will be able to install any optical drive, storage, GPU, CPU and cooling systems by just plugging them into the modular PC's main body, replacing the older ones. Multi-GPU setups are also supported.
The machine is said to be quieter, and features no cables, as the components are to be plugged in. It also includes a touchscreen LCD to display control and maintenance information. The price for the machine is not mentioned.
Razer also introduced its first wristband and a fitness tracker named "Nabu" at CES 2014. The band tells users the number of steps taken and the stairs climbed along with notifications about incoming texts and emails. The band also acts as a location-based social tool as it senses other nearby Nabu bands.
Razer is currently developing the Nabu bands as an open platform leaving some room for outside software developers to create apps for them. The bands are available for developers for $49 starting today. The firm plans to sell it on larger scale by the month of March with revised prices.
