Razer's new Chroma Hardware Development Kit lets you slap RGB lighting on anything

Razer has unveiled the Chroma Hardware Development Kit (HDK), a sort of modular lighting system that allows you to add a bit of RGB lighting to anything. If you feel like your mouse, keyboard, and mouse pad just don't give you enough Chroma coverage, Razer is hoping the Chroma HDK will help you deck out your office or room for "total game immersion."

The HDK operates off of a lighting controller box that that supports four channel output and a total capacity to power 64 LEDs. The box itself comes paired with two LED light strips, each of which is made up of 16 RGB LEDs. An expansion kit is also available, which adds another pair of LED strips and extension cables to the setup, Razer says.

The light strips can be installed in your PC case, on your desk, or all around your room. Each LED can display 16.8 million colors, and the kit comes with a number of default lighting modes, Razer says. On top of that, you can apply custom settings using Chroma Studio in the Razer Synapse 3 beta software.

The Chroma HDK is available now directly from Razer for $79.99. Optionally, the Lightpack Extension Kit for Chroma HDK is also up for grabs for $28.99.

  • Some people like rgb but it's not for me. I bought an rgb keyboard but have set it to blue to match my pc lights.
  • I have a mouse that has LED-Lights on it. I installed the driver, deactivated it and uninstalled them again. But i'm using Phillips Hue for mood lighting in the whole living room.
