Razer unveils a new partnership with a company that manufactures ocean cleaning robots, based on artificial intelligence.
On the occasion of World Oceans Day, which took place this Tuesday, May 8 and for which we have concocted a small selection of marine themed games, Razer announced a collaboration with the ClearBot brand. If Razer is a benchmark in terms of advanced computer and gaming hardware, the company has more recently distinguished itself in the field of ecology and environmental preservation. In his approach #GoGreenWithRazer, a 10-year green plan, Razer is committed to helping environmentally-focused startups by sharing its technology and tools with them. ClearBot is a company that pioneered robot cleaners, with the ability to recognize marine litter and clean up the seas.
Patricia Liu, Team Leader at Razer, said that “ ClearBot’s unique AI and advanced machine learning technology will empower governments and organizations around the world to scale up their sustainability efforts. We strongly encourage other innovative startups to approach Razer for collaboration opportunities, as we strive to make the world a safer place for future generations. »
Razer therefore engaged its design teams with ClearBot, in order to enable them to transform its prototype vacuum cleaner into a marketable version. On the specific side, the robot uses artificial intelligence to detect plastic waste up to two meters and pick up up to 250 kg. To function, it does not need anything other than solar energy.

Razer also gave updates on the progress of the initiative. Snack Snack. As a reminder, each accessory in the Sneki Snek range purchased allows Razer to plant trees.
