The 2023 CES event has already seen plenty of amazing product unveils, and now Razer has added to the excitement with a brand new lineup for the coming year. The gaming-focused company has just introduced a range of new laptops, as well as the much-anticipated Leviathan V2 Pro soundbar. The company says that the new audio device boasts an infrared camera that can detect where a user is seated, before adjusting the audio using real-time 3D beamforming technology.

The Leviathan V2 Pro uses two modes for the 3D audio — THX Spatial Audio Virtual Headset and THX Spatial Audio Virtual Speakers. Razer claims the technology will deliver “crisp, clear treble and deep, punchy bass” using multiple drivers and an included subwoofer. If you’re in the market for an audio upgrade, the new Leviathan V2 Pro should hit the shelves by the end of the month, priced at around $400.

Next up in the Razer lineup is a new webcam called the Kiyo Pro Ultra, featuring the largest sensor ever used in a device of its type (a Sony 1/1.2″ STARVIS 2, for those interested). Razer says the new device will achieve DSLR levels of optical quality, along with fantastic low-light performance and a host of features, including auto tracking and background blurring.

Razer also used CES 2023 to reveal Project Carol, a head cushion with “near-field 7.1 surround sound and HyperSense haptic feedback”. Razer explained that the cushion should fit onto any gaming chair and will convert in-game audio into haptic feedback. Although still at the concept stage, the head cushion is an interesting idea and will hopefully offer a deeper level of immersion when gaming.

Last but by no means least, Razer also confirmed the release date for its new cloud gaming device, known as the Razer Edge. The Android-based handheld will utilize a Snapdragon G3x and will be available for purchase on January 26th, with prices starting at $400.

Truecaller, a well-known app for identifying and blocking spam calls, is enhancing its services by allowing users to create AI versions of their voices. The new feature, available to those with access to Truecaller’s AI Assistant, stems from a partnership with Microsoft and its Azure AI Speech tool, allowing the generation of realistic AI voices that accurately mimic users’ speech patterns and tone.

“This groundbreaking capability not only adds a touch of familiarity and comfort for the users but also showcases the power of AI in transforming the way we interact with our digital assistants,” explained Truecaller product director and general manager Raphael Mimoun in a recent blog post.

The AI Assistant in Truecaller screens incoming calls, informing recipients of a caller’s purpose. Based on this information, users can decide whether to answer the call themselves or let the AI Assistant handle it.

When the feature was introduced in 2022, users could only choose from a collection of preset voices. The ability to record one’s own voice represents a significant step towards the complete personalization of the service.

Azure AI Speech, showcased during the last Build conference, only recently added a personal voice feature that lets people record and replicate voices. Microsoft explained in a blog post, however, that Personal Voice is available on a limited basis and only for specific use cases like voice assistants.

To maintain ethical standards, Microsoft’s Azure AI Speech automatically adds watermarks to AI-generated voices. Additionally, a code of conduct requires companies to obtain full consent from individuals being recorded and prohibits impersonation.
