Thermaltake is back with another product design made in conjunction with BMW Group Designworks USA. The last time we saw a design tie up between these two companies was the Level 10 case that was so cool. The new product is a gaming mouse the goes along with that Level 10 gaming case called the Level 10 M Gaming Mouse.
Gaming mice range from the simple to the ridiculous, though they tend to unite on at least one aspect: "expensive". In the world of gaming hardware, novelty is a constant struggle, and boutique manufacturer SteelSeries has something up their sleeves that certainly qualifies. The company posted two photos to their Twitter account today, showing off what appears to be the tail end of a gaming mouse with an integrated screen of some kind. Thousands of PC gamers' wallets are already feeling lighter.
I have seen all sorts of weird mice over the years with different rodents aimed at gamers and those that have carpal tunnel. Those mice are usually traditional designs that you hold in your hand and move around on your desktop. I have seen some nice designed for use in the air from across the room aimed at people who give a lot of presentations or need to control a media center PC from across the room.
Logitech has outed its latest wireless peripheral, the Touch Mouse M600, and it's gagging for you to stroke, tickle and generally caress it. Topped with a touch-sensitive surface suitable for both left and right handed users, the M600 can handle click-taps and swipes for gestures, and supports Logitech's Flow Scroll software for smoother on-screen navigation.
The thing I don’t like about cordless mice that you have to charge is that they take so long to get a full charge typically. I always forget to plug them in and end up with no mouse for a long time while it charges back up. I generally like wireless mice that use normal batteries better, but if you run out of batteries, you are in trouble. Genius has a new mouse that is perfect for those that like to be green and not use throwaway batteries, yet want something that charges faster too.
Logitech has revealed its latest mouse, the Logitech Cube, and it seems someone in the peripheral company's design has been left with nothing but a ruler to design it. A palm-sized box doubling as a mouse and a wireless presentation controller, automatically switching between the two when you lift it off the desk, the Cube's entire top surface is a touch-sensitive scroll pad.
Genius has unveiled a new product called the Ring Presenter. The device slips onto the finger like a ring and has a control pad on the top that allows the user to control the cursor on the computer as they would with a normal mouse. The ring that wraps around the finger is made from rubber for grip and to fit more people.
3Dconnexion has been around for a long time making pointing devices that are much different from the typical mouse most of us use. Most of these 3D mice that the company makes are aimed at the professional user that designs things with CAD or CAM software. The latest mouse for the firm has now surfaced and it is called the SpaceMouse Pro.
This week over at Dreamhack Winter in Jonkoping Sweden, the folks at SteelSeries have revealed two lovely black, white, and merigold (or orange, if you prefer) pieces of equipment, one limited edition Fnatic Sensei mouse and one 7H Fnatic limited edition headset. You'll find first of all that both of these devices have an interestingly unique look to them, then you'll find that their quality in attacking the gaming world is of course second to none. Inside the headset you'll find 50mm dynamic driver units and SNDBlock ear cushions for sound isolation. Inside the mouse you'll find a 32 bit ARM processor for its ExactTech settings and full customization abilities.
HP has quietly begun shipping its X7000 Wi-Fi Touch Mouse a tad earlier than the expected launch later this week. The X7000 Wi-Fi Touch Mouse connects to your computer or laptop via its built-in Wi-Fi receiver and doesn't require a wireless router. This way the Wi-Fi-enabled mouse also doesn't take up one of your USB ports with a dongle, such as is needed with corded or Bluetooth mice.
