There is always a healthy mix of products at CES, from those that will never see the light of day, to those that will launch and immediately bomb, to those that are sure-fire hits right out of the gate. Some developers bank on successful ideas and put their own spin on them in order to ensure that, at the very least, someone will buy their product, but others prefer to take risks.
Razer unveiled its own wearable gadget at CES 2014, the Nabu, which is a device with fitness-related features, but also a smartwatch of sorts. “It’s not a smartwatch,” CEO Min-Liang Tan told Engadget. “It’s not a fitness band. It’s what we’re calling a ‘smart band.’ ” Since Razer is a company that produces game-related hardware, the Nabu will have some gaming features in the future, as Min revealed that “real-world gamification is something we’re really focused on.” The smart band will be compatible with future augmented reality games and offers band-to-band communication for in-game information trading.

Dubbed “Project Christine,” the modular PC gaming rig built by Razer (via The Verge) and shown around at CES 2014 may just be the coolest gaming machine in town, especially when compared to the uninspiringly designed Steam Machines introduced earlier at the show by Valve’s partners. The object of Project Christine is to allow users to quickly and effortlessly upgrade their gaming machines without compromising on looks, in order to stay up to date with hardware advancements.

One of the craziest tablets to come out of this year’s CES was Razer’s “Project Fiona” tablet. The gaming company’s CEO Min-Liang Tan said he wanted to build a completely different sort of tablet – one that was the complete opposite of an iPad or Android tablet. Much like the Wikipad, the Fiona tablet concept had dual-analogs, and enough buttons to satisfy any console gamer. Where Fiona differed was its ability to play full-fledged PC games such as Skyrim and World of Warcraft natively, whereas Wikipad can only play PC games streamed from the cloud. Although the tablet was originally announced as a concept device and nothing more, Tan announced on his Facebook (FB) page Wednesday that if the device’s page gets 10,000 “likes” or shares within the first seven days, Razer will begin work on turning the project into a real product.
