Razer's Tron gaming peripherals: fluorescent adolescence
If you've opened up this story then chances are you're a bit of a Tron fan. If that's the case, go no further until you've checked out the new trailer and screenshots that we reported on earlier.
Good, now that's out of the way, we can concentrate on the matter in hand - the Tron: Legacy themed keyboard, mouse and mouse-mat that Razer has come up with to be the perfect companions to the movie's tie-in gaming title, Tron: Evolution.
The keyboard is neon blue illuminated and has Rez and De-Rez effects when you boot up your machine or shut it down. It has a detachable modular keypad that can go on either side and, when playing Evolution, it has light based alerts that are triggered by events in the game. It also has fully programmable chiclet keys with macro capabilities to input all of your pre-set commands.
The mouse has ambidextrous support and a 5600dpi 3.5g laser sensor. As well as similar lighting effects to the keyboard it has seven hyperesponse buttons and a braided 2.1m USB cable.
You can buy the mouse on its own or with a Tron themed mouse-mat that has a high precision tracking surface and a bioluminescent tracking glow trail.
All of the peripherals are out this year. The keyboard will cost $149.99, the mouse bundle $129.99, or $99.99 for the mouse on its own. No news yet on UK availability.
Be warned though, that these accessories may or may not make the game-play simpler. Remember - "On the other side of the screen, it all looks so easy."
