We have already talked about the Razer Starcraft II themed line of gaming peripherals that are coming to market back during E3 when the stuff was first unveiled. Razer has announced that gamers who have been looking forward to getting hands on the gear can now pre-order the stuff directly from the Razer website.
Razer has been making some slick and cool gaming peripherals for a long time now. Back in August, the company pulled the wraps off its latest gaming mouse with the Naga that has tons of buttons and was aimed at the MMO gamer. Razer has now announced a couple special edition Naga mice for gamers.
A new Apple patent application for an Ambidextrous Mouse has been submitted, describing a wireless, user-configurable mouse that could automatically recognize whether it was being held by a left- or right-handed user and adjust its virtual buttons and other controls accordingly. Perhaps more interestingly, however, Apple suggests that the peripheral could also be used to identify the current Mac user by the touch-pattern of their hand.
The mouse Apple has in mind sounds a lot like the current Magic Mouse, with "a unibody housing having a buttonless touch sensitive surface" which would be "divided into an array of independent and spatially distinct sensing regions." The various button zones - which could be customized in terms of layout, number and purpose - are then set out according to that user's previous settings.
Final Fantasy XIV is coming to the PC on September 30th, and with a large title like a Final Fantasy title, it's expected that accessories with the logo on them would break into the wild. And, sure enough, we've got not only a keyboard, but plenty of other peripheral goodies for you PC gamers who plan on spending a large amount of hours plugging into the Final Fantasy universe.
Microsoft just officially announced their brand new Arc Touch mouse, but it looks like that's not the only peripheral the Redmond-based company is hard at work on. If this leak from Russian website TheVista.ru has any merit, then it looks like Microsoft is getting ready to add another gadget to their Metro line-up. Unfortunately, there's not a lot of details to be had at this point, but the listing does give us a couple of noteworthy bullet points.
Asus has been lucky enough to use the Lamborghini name for a few of their popular gadgets over the years. Dating all the way back to 2008, when their laptop broke cover, and even their ZX1 smart phone made its debut. And, the name and product placement must be working pretty well for the pair of companies, because a brand new member of the lineage has just made its way through the FCC. Please welcome the XW-Lamborghini Wireless mouse into the family, everyone.
The Arc Touch mouse was one of the teased, and re-teased devices that we were generally interested in seeing more of. After the launch of Apple's "magic" trackpad, seeing what Microsoft could come up with to counter-act Apple's endeavor was an interesting thought. And, now that we've got an official announcement from the Redmond-based company, we can say that we're happy to see that the mouse is still in tact, even if there are plenty of touch options in there to make any future lover happy.
Considering some of you out there are probably heading back to school around this time (or if you're already there), you might be looking for a new electronic toy to buy. And hey, if you can write it off as a school-related purchase, why not, right? That's what Genius is hoping to rope you in with, as they've just announced their new Navigator 905BT wireless mouse, featuring Bluetooth technology inside.
I often wonder how Microsoft and Logitech come up with the names of their new products. Take the new Wireless Mobile Mouse 4000, the name is long and don't really roll off the tongue well. I always think that new Microsoft product names are best sung to the tune of Mystery Science Theater 3000, which will now be stuck in my head all day. See what I mean, Wireless Mobile Mouse Four Thouousuuuund. Through in some snarky comments and you have a late night TV show.
The mouse changes all the time. Perhaps not in such revolutionary ways that people take notice each and every time it happens, but it certainly happens. SmartFish has just released a new design on an old favorite, and they're hoping that it's bold and new enough that it will capture the attention of consumers out there. And, considering it's the first to feature a patented swivel mechanism, they may just be on to something.
