Tesla CEO Elon Musk and the company’s latest all-electric Cybertruck has inspired gaming lifestyle brand Razer to imagine a “Cyberblade” gaming laptop that’s inspired by the vehicle. The concept’s design features references to the Cybertruck, from its cold silver finish to its sharp, angular edges, and front-facing LED lightbar.
Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan’s idea was one of many concepts conceived after the unveiling of the Cybertruck. While the design of the upcoming electric pickup truck was perceived as polarizing at first, technology geeks and autophiles have quickly changed their tune from one of confusion to appreciation for the feature-rich Blade Runner-esque electric monster.

While Musk has not responded yet to Tan’s tweets, the idea of the Singaporean lawyer-turned-entrepreneur has caught the attention of the Twitterverse, with many members of the social media platform and the Tesla community supporting the concept. The Razer CEO also mentioned to Musk via Twitter his wish to have a customized Cybertruck sporting the color of the gaming laptop brand.
The Razer CEO’s gaming references run parallel to that of Elon Musk’s goals for Tesla’s vehicles, which is to make them the ultimate instruments of fun. This is one of the reasons why Tesla’s electric cars are some of the only cars in the auto market that are equipped with a healthy set of entertainment-focused features.
These include the Tesla Arcade, which includes titles such as Cuphead and Beach Buggy Racing 2, as well as classic Atari games like Missile Command and Lunar Lander. With the rollout of the company’s V10 software, Tesla also introduced a number of new fun features such as Netflix and YouTube streaming, as well as features like Caraoke.
Tesla promises its Cybertruck to be “better utility than a truck with more performance than a sports car.” The electric pickup truck will sport an exoskeleton crafted from ultra-hard 30x cold-rolled stainless-steel and ultra-strong Tesla armor glass. Musk also confirmed that the Cybertruck will have a flip stop that will enable owners to carry long cargo.
The entry-level Cybertruck with a price tag of $39,900 can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in less than 6.5 seconds and boasts of a towing capacity of more than 7,500 lbs., Autopilot and adaptive air suspension will come as standard. The vehicle will also feature a top-tier variant that has a 0-60 mph time of 2.9 seconds, faster than many high-performance cars on the market.
