SteelSeries reveals the Sensei RAW mouse
SteelSeries, a company known for its computer peripherals, has unveiled a new mouse that it has dubbed the Sensei RAW.
Unfortunately the new mouse has nothing in common with what was expected earlier. SteelSeries fans were expecting a mouse with a built-in display but much to their surpise the Sensei RAW has nothing of the sort.
Presented at the CeBIT 2012 show in Germany this week, the Sensei RAW comes with a pixellated SteelSeries logo on the upper base of the shell. While its appearance in the teaser images suggested a customisable 32×32 pixel display, in reality it’s nothing more than a stylised interpretation of the company’s logo.The company logo illuminates in three directions each of which can be configured to pulse at a different rate.
The Sensei RAW will be available in two different versions. The first version – the Sensei RAW Rubberized will come with a non-slip rubber coating that is said to be resistant to deterioration from sweaty palms. The second version of the Sensei RAW lacks the rubber coating – instead it comes with a more traditional shiny black plastic surface.
SteelSeries Sensei RAW customers will also get the SteelSeries Engine software suite, which will allow you to customize the various features with a claimed unlimited number of gaming profiles. The underside of the mouse also features oversized Teflon pads for smooth gliding and a 2M anti-tangle USB cable with black and white braiding.
The new Sensei RAW mouse will retail for 59.99 USD in the United States when it officially launches in June this year.
