CES 2018 – Razer Showcases Project Linda, Nommo, and Mamba HyperFlux

At CES 2018, Razer showcased two new products as well as another award-winning proof of concept. This year’s award-winning concept comes in the form of Project Linda, a laptop that uses their recently-released Razer Phone as its core. Meanwhile, the two new releases come in the form of PC peripherals. The Razer Nommo is a new speaker system that comes in various price tiers. The Razer Mamba HyperFlux and Razer Firefly HyperFlux  are paired into the same product, a wireless mouse that receives its power directly from the mouse mat.

Let’s jump right into each.

Razer Mamba HyperFlux and Razer Firefly HyperFlux

Razer introduced their new Razer HyperFlux system at CES 2018. This is a wireless powering system in which a powered mouse mat uses a magnetic field to keep its HyperFlux-ready mouse charged while it is in contact with the mat. The Razer Hyperflux mat here is the Razer Firefly HyperFlux , a wired mouse mat that has Razer Chroma lighting and two interchangeable mouse surfaces. You can swap between a hard and slick surface for lighter friction and a softer and cloth-like surface for more traction and control.

Its companion mouse, the Razer Mamba HyperFlux, has no battery. However, it does retain power for five to ten seconds after the mouse is lifted from the mat. This allows the Razer Mamba HyperFlux to retain constant connectivity during gameplay, even when the mouse is briefly lifted off of the mat. The mouse uses Razer’s Adaptive Frequency Technology (AFT) to ensure that it is constantly using the strongest signal within the 2.4 GHz wireless frequency band.

Going deeper into the Razer Mamba HyperFlux, the mouse uses the same build as the previous Razer Mamba mouse, with the exception of it being 100% wireless. However, you have the option to remove the cable from the Razer Firefly HyperFlux  mat and connect it directly to the Razer Mamba HyperFlux, effectively making it a traditional wired mouse. It houses a no-joke 16,000 DPI 5G optical sensor and sits at 96 grams of weight. The Razer Mamba HyperFlux and Razer Firefly HyperFlux  combo is available now at the store for $249.
