If there is a clarion call in the gaming hardware world where gaming mice are concerned, it isn’t for the need for more buttons, a higher resolution, the ability to add or remove weights in the mouse – most folks would probably clamor for an ambidextrous mouse. You might disagree, but there is just something about the symmetrical lines of an object that turns it into a pure work of art. While southpaw gamers tend to be left sidelined with no left-handed mice models being churned out by different manufacturers, Razer heeds this need with their latest ambidextrous gaming mouse, the Razer Taipan.
Razer did not get a bunch of monkeys to design this mouse – instead, they employed ergonomic scientists to work with the top echelon of e-Sports athletes from professional gaming teams such as Empire, Frenetic Array, Mousesports, Quantic, Rox.Kis and Type II Gaming, in order to pinpoint the optimal shape, weight, and balance that are required in an ambidextrous mouse, especially when one is performing at the highest levels of gameplay.
This resulted in the Razer Taipan which boasts of a symmetrical shape with narrow footprint, coupled with an arched back as well as a tweaked weight distribution. It features Razer’s new 8200 dpi 4G Dual Sensor System, a combination of laser and optical sensors, as well as Synapse 2.0 support that offers cloud-based storage software to hold your custom profiles and settings. It will retail for $79.99 or €79.99, depending on which side of the pond you reside on. [Press Release]
