Is 16 million colors just not enough for you? What about 16 million colors on four different devices? That's eleventy billion colors. I did the math. Amazon has a bundle including a Philips Hue 2-bulb starter kit, a Philips Hue Ambiance LightStrip, a Razer Huntsman mechanical keyboard, and a Razer Naga Trinity gaming mouse all for just $392 total. Bought individually, these devices add up to around $440. This is a brand new bundle just released in the last few days, and this price is already about $100 less than it was going for in the first couple days of release.
The Philips Hue starter kit only recently dropped down to its individual $99.99 price, and we wrote about it when it did. You can get more detailed information on it there. Since that starter kit comes with a Philips Hue hub, it will work directly with the LightStrip, too. You can control all of them with your phone or a voice assistant.
The really cool part, and the reason this bundle from two different brands exists at all, is that Razer's custom RGB lighting called Chroma also works with Philips Hue. After you've setup your starter kit and lightstrip, you can create an entertainment group inside the Philips Hue app. Then you'll use the Razer Synapse 3 program on the computer your new keyboard and mouse are hooked up to and add the Philips Hue module. From there, you can sync every system here for a dynamic light show that responds to the music or video game you're playing.
