Headsets, keyboards, mice, and other accessories for gamers are tied together by the Corsair Utility Engine software. Corsair is kicking things off with a contest. The K70 RGB mechanical gaming keyboard sports Corsair's new "Corsair Gaming" branding. Gamers tend to take their keyboards and mice seriously, which why many of today’s... Read more...
If you’ve been secretly wondering whether you’re a double-crossing secret agent, you’ll be excited (or disheartened) to know that the technology to fiddle with memories really is under development. Scientists at MIT have successfully programmed a hapless mouse to remember receiving an electric shock from a situation in which it wasn’t actually shocked. Scientists are able to change memories in mice.

When it comes to gaming mice, it's important to pick a device that matches the hand well. After all, losing those deathmatches comes down the player, their connection, and their mouse. SteelSeries is a big name amongst the hardcore fraggers, and the company's latest contraption is definitely one of its finest. The new Sensei is equipped with a 32-bit ARM processor (making it is as fast as the original Pentium 75MHz processor released by Intel in 1994), and is capable of doubling its sensitivity as well. Users will find 3 different zones on the Sensei (the wheel, the DPI indicator and the back)... Read more...
3D is clearly booming, and it's not just in the cinema. It's spreading to television and elsewhere, and while 3D on the screen isn't the same as spacial 3D, we doubt it's a coincidence that 3D mice are also coming into play. 3Dconnexion, which has created a certain amount of 3D peripherals in the years, has just announced 3DxWare 10, which is detailed as a breakthrough driver platform that extends the usage of 3D mice to any application, from Microsoft Office to internet browsers and from media players to games. And now with 3DxWare 10, 3Dconnexion 3D mice can also handle everyday applications... Read more...

It's a battle that will probably never end: wired vs. wireless mice. Some gamers swear by wired mice, claiming that they're more accurate and that they won't just die on your mid-game if your batteries run out. Some say that the flexibility of a wireless mouse trumps even that, and that they'd rather never worry about a cord slowing down their movements. We obviously see the pros and cons of both input methods, and Razer has been supporting both camps for years. The company's newest product is actually an accessory designed to make life easier for those who swear by wired mice. It's a Mouse Bungee,... Read more...
Ever had to deal with a mouse problem? Those guys can multiply like no other. And funny enough, so can mice that you move cursors around with. Logitech, who has become a staple in the mouse industry, introduced their first wireless mouse in 1991. Nearly 20 years later, they have shipping 100 million of them. Not bad, not bad at all. By our math, that's over 5 million mice per year, and that's nothing to sneeze at. Wireless mice are big business today, with just about every mouse maker in the world having at least a few wireless options. Logitech's first one was RF-based, and today, the company... Read more...
The mouse has been "the mouse" for years now. Outside of a few crazy modifications, the mouse has mostly remained the same over the years. Even the mice shipping now with desktops look a lot like the first production mice that were used, and while a scroll wheel and a few extra buttons have been added, the mainstream public has yet to adopt a mouse that's drastically different than anything else. Swiftpoint has finally accomplished the unthinkable: they're re-thinking the mouse, and the product that they have created is a real sight to behold. It's one of the most interesting and unique input devices... Read more...
Sure, those of us into first person shooters would love to frag our friends with a Razer Mamba or Logitech G9x, but if your gaming diet consists of Peggle with a side of Bejeweled, then there's no sense in dropping a Benjamin (or more) on a rodent. Nor will a dedicated gaming mouse level up your Microsoft Office Ribbon Hero skills (yes folks, this one actually exists - check it out here).Lucky for you, there are no shortage of wallet-friendly rodents to choose from, including three brand new entries from Microsoft's Hardware division, each of which costs less than $30. Two of the new mice -- the... Read more...
We know it's an easy joke, but really, could Verbatim not think of any other name for its new family of mice? We're no experts on product labeling, but "Easy Riser" probably wouldn't have been our top choice for a number of politically incorrect reasons. At any rate, the news here is that Verbatim has issued a new range of mousing devices, all of which are designed to travel well and work with Windows and Mac machines.These ultra-slim mice boast a new design that enables users to adjust the height of the mouse with the flick of a switch. Why add that, you ask? According to the company, having the... Read more...
Logitech today announced two new mice that can be used almost anywhere, even on clear glass.The glass must be at least 4 millimeters thick, but I'd imagine it would be a little stressful to be computing on a table where the glass top was thinner, wondering if you're going to press too hard and bring the entire tabletop crashing to the ground in a pile of glass shards.The Logitech Performance Mouse MX and the Logitech Anywhere Mouse MX use Darkfield Laser Tracking to achieve their goals and are supposed to be useful on even high-gloss surfaces that most mice are useless on.The mice are wireless,...

Microsoft may not be the first vendor you think of when looking for a new webcam, but sure enough, the company has just introduced a new one. The LifeCam VX-2000 is the newest member of the growing LifeCam family, and priced at under $30, it's apt to fit most budgets. It transmits VGA video and possesses a built-in microphone, and apparently Microsoft has arranged for this thing to work easily with any broadband-connected PC. Designed for video calling and video chatting, the webcam packs a 1.3MP sensor and auto-adjusts for low-light condition. It'll ship next month for $29.95 and will arrive with... Read more...
