If you're familiar with Razer products you'll be familiar with Chroma, the platform that makes the company's accessories light up like a Christmas tree. Chroma has expanded beyond just Razer's own hardware, though, branching out into smart home lighting earlier this year with Philips Hue.
Now, the latest partnership is with Nanoleaf, putting Chroma into their pretty amazing and extremely futuristic looking light panels.
Razer Chroma and Nanoleaf go beyond being a brilliant light show; they provide a full-blown immersive gaming experience. From status cues to a flickering dungeon lamp, transform the way you play as you enjoy ambient in-game effects that react dynamically to every action and event.
To enable the integration, Nanoleaf owners need to download the Windows pairing tool and run through a fairly simple, and swift setup process. From here on out you'll be able to integrate the Nanoleaf panels into your Chroma setup, which includes reacting to PC games which support it such as Final Fantasy XV, Fortnite and Overwatch.
The Nanoleaf Light Panels are a very different approach to smart lighting compared to brands like Hue and Lifx, but let's be honest, they look amazing. Our buddies over at Android Central have already put them through their paces and give two thumbs up.
If this sounds like something for you, the starter kit is currently available for around $220, and with that you'll get nine panels. Expansion kits and even a rhythm module to make the lights react to your music are also available to really help make it your own.
