Completely pointless, or actually kinda cool?
RGB lighting is all the rage among PC gaming manufacturers, and though it isn't everyone's cup of tea, if done right it can bring a whole new ambience to your setup.
Extending the illumination from the desk to the chair is Vertagear, whose PL4500 is being introduced as the world's first wireless RGB gaming chair. The battery-powered and rechargeable seat communicates via a USB dongle and can integrate with NZXT's CAM software utility, allowing for multiple effects and the option to enable adaptive lighting that responds to on-screen action in supported games.
Illumination is spread across two zones - the area above the shoulders, viewable from front and back - and an under glow at the base of the chair. Aimed primarily at the streaming crowd, whose goal is to stand out and by seen, the RGB-illuminated PL4500 looks quite trendy in the flesh, and happens to be extremely comfortable. The catch? Battery life is rumoured to be good for only 12 hours, meaning regular charging between marathon gaming sessions. Oh, and there's the small matter of a $399 price tag.
