The Acer Predator Thronos is the prequel to ‘Ready Player One’ gaming equipment

While this isn’t as immersive as snapping on a VR headset and walking on an omni-directional treadmill while wearing a haptic feedback suit, the Acer Predator Thronos is halfway there at the least. This behemoth of a chair is designed for the most comfortable gaming experience, with a racecar-style seat with controls that allow you to lean forward, backward, adjust the seat’s height, recliner angle, and leg-rest angle… you know, like a dentist’s chair, but one that gives you a different sort of adrenaline rush.

The futuristic scorpion-inspired gaming throne comes with a swiveling keyboard tray, and a moving rear arm that holds three high-resolution curved displays practically giving you the power of panoramic vision while gaming. The chair even comes with haptic feedback that jolts you to the left or right while you’re racing, or vibrates to the recoil of a gun. RGB lighting on the outside allows you to customize the look of the chair, but only to a certain degree because there’s little you can do to take away the Predator Thronos’ badboy demeanor from it. The Thronos comes with Acer’s top-of-the-line Orion 9000 desktop, giving you the latest Intel processors and NVIDIA graphics, so you can quite literally game like a god. Just promise us you won’t play Angry Birds on this bad-boy.
