Razer has announced the latest entrant in its gaming series of mice, called the Ouroboros. Keeping with their tradition of naming their products after extinct or mythical creatures, the Ouroboros mouse shares its name with an ancient symbol depicting a serpent swallowing its own tail and forming a circle.
The Ouroboros has got quite an interesting design. It has a customizable design that reminds one of the Cyborg R.A.T.7, although it is not quite as customizable. What you can do on the Ouroboros is adjust the length of the back arch, making the mouse longer. The arch also tilts so you can have a shape that fits your palm best.
The side panels are also removable and you can choose from two types depending upon how you hold your mouse while gaming. Those with a claw grip tend to hold the mouse on the sides using their fingertips. They can use the standard side grip on the mouse. Those who use a palm grip can use the extended winged finger rest panels to rest their thumb and pinkie.
Unlike the R.A.T.7, the Ouroboros is ambidextrous, so both left as well has right handed gamers can use it equally well.
The Ouroboros is also a wireless mouse, rare for devices meant for gaming but Razer says that the mouse has been designed to work well either way. Also, if you must use a cable, you can.
The Ouroboros also supports 4G dual sensor system up to 8200DPI, that supports both surface calibration and customized cutoff. There is a switch at the bottom that lets you disable the side keys while gaming. The Ouroboros runs on a single AA cell that provides up to 12 hours of continuous battery life. You can use the provided dock to charge the mouse when not in use.
The Razer Ouroboros will be available by the fourth quarter of this year and will set you back by $129.99.
