Gamers are no strangers to weird products, like, say, Gamer Fart 9000, a protein powder seemingly meant to bulk up the hands of the most hardcore members of gamer-kin. The success of so many bizarre gamer-related products made many companies believe there's no limit to how silly they can get and still turn a profit.

limited in the sense that they'll have to limit the production when people start dying.

Maybe we just oppose beautiful and inevitable change, but this news made us the same way we felt when we learned that Razer was making Zephyr, the first mask for gamers,

an absolutely ridiculous-looking piece of tech that turns out isn't even good at filtering.
