Razer's pushing out another mouse and this time, it's for both left and right handed gamers. The Razer Ouroboros
is am ambidextrious mouse that has an adjustable palm rest to help fit your hand. This new mouse also lets you change the side panels and back tilt angle. What Razer is going for here is to make the mouse fit your hand like a glove so you game in comfort whether you use the left or right hand.
There's an 8200DPI dual sensor system on the bottom and that can be changed of course. There's both a laser and an optical sensor on the bottom. The mouse has a button that'll change that sensitivity on the fly as well.
It works in both wired and wireless form with a single rechargable AA battery giving you up to 12 hours of gaming if you choose to cut the cord. That's a pretty good amount of time on a single battery.
If you're interested in picking one up, it'll be out in Q4 at a price of $129.99.
THE RAZER™ OUROBOROS PUTS INFINITY IN THE PALM OF YOUR HAND
World leading game peripheral company launches an ergonomic, ambidextrous mouse customizable for all users
Shanghai, China (Chinajoy 2012) – Razer, the world leader in high-performance gaming hardware, today announced the release of the Razer Ouroboros. Like its namesake, the elite gaming mouse can evolve without limit, with fully-customizable ergonomics that are adjustable for any hand size and grip style
No two people have the same sized hands, and everyone grips his or her mouse differently. When researching form factor preferences for ambidextrous mice, Razer’s team of ergonomic scientists and engineers discovered three key factors in design: the length of the mouse, the back arch and the grip profile. With this in mind, the Razer Ouroboros is designed for precision gaming, with an adjustable palm rest capable of moving up to 0.9 in. (20 mm), suitable for people of varying hand sizes.
The Ouroboros additionally boasts two interchangeable side panels for altering the footprint of the mouse to suit claw, palm or hybrid grip styles, and it has an adjustable back tilt angle to ensure palm support for gaming comfort and endurance. Its enhanced sensor technology is capable of up to 8200 dpi, and a dedicated, built-in dpi clutch trigger button ensures players can achieve pinpoint precision when needed. Powered by a single rechargeable AA battery, the Razer Ouroboros ensures a minimum of 12 hrs. of drag-free, lag-less play.
Adding even more versatility to the mix, Razer has also included an upgraded, award-winning 4G Dual Sensor System, and gaming-grade, 1 ms wireless technology, providing the option for wired or wireless use.
“Designed for excellence and total ownage, the Razer Ouroboros was intended to be wielded by all serious gamers looking to win any FPS, RTS or RPG with custom-made dominance,” said Robert “RazerGuy” Krakoff, president of Razer USA. “We are proud to introduce it as Razer’s first gaming mouse that features optimized, customizable, ambidextrous ergonomics that better fit the curvature of any and every hand size and personal grip style by delivering ultimate comfort, control, power and built-in intelligence to ascend to gaming immortality.”
About Razer Ouroboros Gaming Mouse:
The Razer Ouroboros ambidextrous wireless gaming mouse is designed for both right- and left-handed gamers. It offers fully customizable ergonomics and a fit for every hand size—big or small—by allowing adjustment of the arched palm rest and back. Two interchangeable side panels ensure you’re using your preferred grip style at all times. Game for hours-on-end while minimizing fatigue and maximizing comfort.
Razer’s highly advanced 8200 dpi 4G Dual Sensor System powers the mouse. This gaming-grade mouse sensor combines a laser and an optical sensor to enhance tracking precision and detect surfaces 10 times faster than previous generation sensors. Its all-new dpi clutch lets you temporarily reduce or increase the dpi as you game, so you can go from high-sensitivity assault to more measured sniper, then back to assault again, as needed.
The Razer Ouroboros also features an ultra-low 1 ms latency wireless play that is as responsive and precise as when it is corded. You’re as free to swipe and destroy as your play style dictates.
