Razer preps Tron-themed keyboard and mouseBy Matthew DeCarlo
Children of the 80s: Disney is preparing a range of Tron-themed electronics to promote the launch of its new movie, Tron: Legacy. Among the companies partnering with the studio is PC peripherals maker Razer, who is working a new Tron-based mouse and keyboard.
The mouse features Razer's 5600dpi 3.5g sensor, which is the same technology found in the company's upper-scale products, such as the Mamba we recently reviewed. It's also described as "ergonomic," although that's not the first word that comes to mind when we look at the picture below.
The keyboard's highlights include a set of programmable keys, macro recording capabilities, and a detachable keypad, as seen on competing products like the Microsoft SideWinder X6. There's also talk of a "high precision mouse mat," to complete the set.
Razer's Tron product line will range in price from $79 to $139, while products from other manufacturers include iPod docks, iPhone cases, ear buds, as well as gaming controllers for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii.
