I’m not much of a computer gamer, but I’m a big fan of some gaming hardware, especially gaming mice and mousepads, which I find typically offer excellent ergonomics, superior performance to regular point and click peripherals, and durable constructed. A case in point is the Razer Orochi laptop gaming mouse.
The HandShoe ergonomic mouse from Hippus NV is designed to track around your mousepad guided by just the weight of a relaxed hand. Designed over two years of field testing and refinement in close cooperation with two medical universities, the HandShoe Mouse can help minimize stress associated with devices that must be gripped while orienting the mousing hand and arm.
So you like the look and feel of a nice flat laptop keyboard but you don’t like the number row. If you are, like me, a fan of the 10 key pad (especially handy if you work with numbers all day) then Rapoo may have a solution for you. The Blade 8900 is a peripheral set which includes a low profile keyboard (17” x 6 5/8” x 7/8”) and a laser mouse.
Rapoo makes several models of wireless mice, but today it’s all about the T120P. This particular model uses a USB receiver to accommodate the 5G wireless transmission. This keeps the mouse from the 2.4G wireless range to keep Bluetooth interference to a minimum. This uses one of USB ports, but a docking station or USB hub can fix that problem fairly quickly.
Rapoo has announced the latest entry in its Blade Series of wireless peripherals: the E2700 multimedia wireless keyboard with touchpad. The ultra-slim (186 grams and 5.6mm thick), single unit keyboard is designed to enhance productivity and performance by eliminating the need for a separate keyboard and mouse.
When I mention mice and the 2014 Winter Olympics, you probably think I’m talking about the hotel conditions in Sochi, Russia. Not so! I’m talking about Logitech’s Global Fan Collection of flag-inspired designs for the popular M317 Wireless Mouse.
Christmas is fast approaching, and you want to give gifts to your favorite gamers, but you have no idea what to buy. Why not a mouse, controller, headphone or other accessory to go along with their Mac, iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch? They’ll be thanking your generosity every time they fire up their games.
The ROCCAT Kone XTD is an award-winning mouse with premium components, advanced precision, and a unique lighting and effects system that’s now available for Mac gamers for $89.99.
It’s not uncommon to find decent accessories for Mac gaming these days. It’s not often, however, we see gaming products—mice, keyboards, mats, etc.—designed specifically for Mac gamers. But that’s what we’re getting from Rogue with their new Mondo series, a “… premium line of products that sport the Mac design language, and are packed with powerful features specifically designed for work and play on the Mac.”
Logitech has updated their Logitech Gaming Software for their Logitech G gaming mice and keyboards to support OS X. Prices range from $40 – $100 for the mice and $60 – $200 for the keyboards, all of which have enough buttons to take your gaming to the next level.
RadioShack now sells most of Apple’s Macintosh peripheral and accessory products on their website and brick-and-mortar stores. You can buy Apple’s keyboards and mice, USB Superdrives, AirPort and Time Capsule devices, EarPods, and a plethora of connectors, adapters, and cables. All are at prices comparable to those found at the Apple Store.
Evoluent has taken the traditional computer mouse and turned it 90º. For users with repetitive stress injuries (RSI) or who simply experience discomfort using a mouse all day, the Vertical Mouse 4 may provide you with relief from physical pains, though it’s likely to replace them with some software pain in the process.
