Are you planning to take your gaming setup to the next level? As long as you’ve got the cash, then the Acer Predator Thronos Air may be the gaming throne you’ve been waiting for!
What is Acer Predator Thronos Air?
Surrounded in metal, the Predator Thronos Air is described by Acer as a “screen-filled paradise” that gives hardcore gamers the soothing support that only a professional-grade massage-cushioned gaming chair can provide.
The futuristic PC setup can be customized in multiple ways. Players can mount up to three displays of their choice or opt for an ultrawide screen to take games head-on in 21:9. The chair’s
“Scorpion Arch” can hold up to 15 kg of weight so users can choose from a wide variety of displays depending on their needs.
Users can also take a break from long hours of playing without leaving their seats, thanks to the contraption’s high-resilience foam cushioned, ergonomic chair that even features a massage function that is perfect for relaxing after those particularly exhausting matches.
In addition to the massage function, the chair also sports 4D armrests and can be reclined to 130 degrees within the cabin or 180 degrees outside for ultimate relaxation.
The chair’s peripheral tray is also adjustable, allowing video gamers to keep their keyboards and mice directly in front of them. Though players will never want to leave the motorized steel structure once they sit on it, the left-side cabin door of the metal contraption allows for easy entry and exit.
As for its overall look, the Thronos Air echoes the iconic Predator feel with its abyssal black steel frame and teal accents. It also features LED lighting that brings the Predator insignia to life. Other features include USB hub, cup holder, headset rest, sophisticated cable management, footrests, soft glow ambient lighting, and camera mounts. Gamers with extra dough can also add accessories like a complete camera setup so your Twitch or Mixer fans can watch in envy.
Released in 2019, the Predator Thronos Air is the successor of Acer’s original Predator Thronos, which was unveiled back in 2018. Weighing nearly 500 pounds, the original Predator Thronos heightens the overall experience by surrounding gamers in a cockpit-like environment. The original model can also vibrate in sync with the games being played by the user and recline up to 140 degrees.
According to its official page, the Acer Predator Thronos Air was recognized as one of the most innovative products at the 2020 Red Dot Design Award and at the 2020 iF Design Award.

Acer’s original Predator Thronos was priced at $29,000 but is no longer available for purchase. The brand’s Predator Thronos Air, on the other hand, is less expensive but still costs a whopping $13,999 per unit.
