Philips and Razer today announced a new collaboration that allows Philips’ Hue line of lights to integrate with Razer Chroma-enabled devices.
When using a device that features Razer Chroma, which includes everything from the Razer Blade line of laptops to Razer Chroma keyboards, gaming controllers, and mice, allowing your Philips Hue lights to react to whatever game you’re playing.
With Chroma Studio, you can also create different lighting effects across all Synapse-enabled devices that extend to Hue lights or use pre-configured effects like cascading waves or fire.
Razer says that its Razer Chroma devices and Hue lights are able to provide a fully immersive gaming experience, activating with game cues. When there’s a flickering lamp, for example, the lights in the room will flicker, or when you score a kill, you’ll be rewarded with a unique lighting scene.
Game developers can use Razer’s Chroma SDK to built lighting effects that will impact Hue and Chroma devices, and many games have already adopted support, like Overwatch, Quake Champions, Factorio, Killing Floor 2, and more.
