Taking cues from sci-fi in general and mainstream successes like Ready Player One, Cooler Master has introduced a self-contained, semi-enclosed workstation for gaming and professionals. The ORB X GamePod is being hailed by Cooler Master as a privacy-geared solution for increased immersion and productivity throughout all planes of PC usage, whether you're a professional or a mainstream user with gaming aspirations. Catering to those use-cases, the ORB X features support for either one 49" monitor, or up to three separate 27" monitors, and includes a 2.1 surround sound system in its carcass.
Like the name implies, we're looking at a "a fully automated motorized shuttle dome" - featuring quality of life improvements such as an adjustable head rest, lumbar support, and a footrest for comfort customized to its personal user. A USB hub, mouse and keyboard tray, and wireless phone charger also make their appearances so as to make this the (almost ultimate) solution for self-contained productivity or entertainment. The dome can be activated to receive the user with a single touch of a button, immediately whirring and morphing into the appropriate position - there's that sci-fi giddiness to be found here for sure. A hidden, removable compartment serves as the place of honor for either your PC rig or console. No word on pricing or availability were available at time of writing, but expect the Cooler Master ORB X to cost above four digits - perhaps even breaking the five digit mark. There is RGB illumination, after all.
