[CES 2012] ROCCAT Studios of Germany intends to penetrate the US market by touting a range of new peripherals which are said to deliver the “world’s most advanced gaming engineering”. I can believe that, considering the kind of automobiles Germany churns out. From the middle of February onwards, expect to see ROCCAT Studios introduce the Isku Illuminated Gaming Keyboard, Kone[+] Max Customization Gaming Mouse and the Kave 5.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset which we will look at individually in greater detail after the jump.
First off, the Isku Illuminated Gaming Keyboard will merge smart gaming engineering with jaw-dropping design, where you will have access to the exclusive ROCCAT Talk protocol so that the Isku Illuminated Gaming Keyboard will be able to “talk” to the ROCCAT Kone[+] high-performance gaming mouse, offering a compounded performance boost that enables quicker execution of mouse macros – since you can do so from the keyboard itself. Easy-Aim technology also helps those who want to up the ante in sniper mode for select games, where holding a single keyboard key will optimize your DPI settings instantly on the Kone[+].
Up next, the mentioned Kone[+] Max Customization Gaming Mouse that comes with a 6000dpi Pro-Aim Laser Sensor, sporting 10.5 megapixel resolution and 1000Hz polling rate to deliver maximum precision. Heck, it is capable of transmitting lightning fast mouse movements with up to 30Gs of acceleration and with speeds of up to 200ips (5.08m/s) without suffering from any loss or lag. The mouse wheel itself has new, distinctive notch positions which are ideal for gaming purposes, while a wider design makes things easier to control. With the Easy-Shift[+] button, you can assign a couple of functions to each button so that it doubles the effective amount of macros or functions.
Last but not least, the Kave 5.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset delivers realistic 3D sound so that you are better able to pinpoint the exact location of your enemy in order to gain an edge in a shootout. Your ears will be treated to unparalleled immersive sound with 40 mm speakers in addition to a vibration unit that has been arranged at a 12 degree angle and embedded within each earcup. A blue LED at the end of the boom mic is there so that you know whether the mute function is turned on or not, in order to prevent loose lips from sharing crucial team strategy when the going gets tough.
The Isku Illuminated Gaming Keyboard, Kone[+] Max Customization Gaming Mouse and the Kave 5.1 Surround Sound Gaming Headset will be out this February for $89.99, $79.99 and $119.99, respectively.
