Now for some more recent CES news. Game controller and accessory company Mad Catz debuted new "fully adjustable" additions to its line of "Premium Cyborg Gaming Mice" at the electronics trade show this week, and they look more like futuristic vehicles you'd race through the post-apocalyptic streets of Neo-Tokyo and less like something you'd use to double click on desktop icons.
The Cyborg R.A.T. line features four different models, ranging in price from $49.99 to $129.99 with variances in DPI, tracking speed, buttons, USB/wireless options, adjustable grips/rests, and removable weights. In at least one of the photos, it looks like the gaming mouse can shoot rockets out its backside (probably triggered by the red button on the thumb space, so take care not to push that).
"Cyborg is best known for ergonomic and fully adjustable flight sticks, gaming mice and keyboards. The new mouse range incorporates the same market leading design principles and applies them to gaming mice. For the first time ever on a mouse, the key points of contact between the gamer’s hand and the mouse are fully adjustable allowing it to be customized for any grip preference," says Mad Catz CEO and president Darren Richardson.
