Razer makes some of the best looking gaming kit out there , although the three headed snake usually comes in expensive gaming equipment , their new Nabu X fitness wearable and the Forge TV Android console are probably exceptions, and with their new product launch , Razer might be signaling their arrival to the world of mobile devices .
