Posted on Sunday, Jan 14 2007 @ 18:50 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
Sharkoon is bringing the new Rush series onto the market: a series of products specially designed for gamers. The first item to bear this new label is a laser mouse: the Sharkoon Rush Mouse, which boasts a gamer-friendly design, adjustable sampling rate, precision laser module, and optimal sampling characteristics and smoothness of movement.

The mouse's ergonomically formed housing is in classic matte black and offers a non-slip thumb rest together with a soft, fully rubberized surface for a flexible, solid grip even in situations so intense they cause you to break out in a sweat. In addition to an easy-to-turn scroll wheel and the standard left and right mouse buttons seamlessly worked into the design, the Sharkoon Rush Mouse is also equipped with an eye-catching, orange-colored thumb selector switch that allows users to directly select the sampling rate, instantly adapting to the current battle situation -- for example to carefully take aim in sniper mode or accelerate the action in close combat. The precision laser can be set at 400, 800, 1600, or 2000 dpi resolution. Status LEDs on the left side of the top of the mouse show at a glance the currently selected sampling rate.

The Agilent ADNS-6010 laser sensor functions with an image frequency of 7080 fps (6.4 megapixel/sec), a polling rate of 1000 Hz, and can withstand a maximal acceleration of up to 20 G. Four specially coated glide pads on the underside let the mouse move smoothly across just about any flat surface. The Rush Mouse weighs 124 g, and the 2 m USB cable offers ample freedom of movement. A carrying pouch is included in delivery.

The Laser Mouse for Gamers will sell for 24EUR in Europe.
