Razer introduces the Orbweaver Chroma, this version features RGB backlighting with 16.8 million color options. The peripheral features 30 fully programmable mechanical buttons with an actutation force of 50g, as well as a 8-way thumb-pad. The hand, thumb and palm-rest modules are all adjustable for maximum comfort. Razer says the Orbweaver Chroma will hit the market sometime this month for $129.99 (129.99EUR).
Razer™, a world leader in connected devices and software for gamers, today announced the launch of the Razer Orbweaver Chroma, a customizable, mechanical, ergonomic gaming keypad that is specifically designed for tournament-grade controls and color synchronization with other Chroma-enabled devices.
Building on the success of the original Razer Orbweaver, the all-new Razer Orbweaver Chroma provides gamers with 20 fully programmable Razer Mechanical Switches; an eight-way directional thumb-pad; adjustable hand, thumb and palm modules; and now, with all of the beloved lighting features first seen on the Razer BlackWidow Chroma keyboard.
The built-in green Razer Mechanical Switches come with a required actuation force of 50 grams, ensuring that commands are executed as fast as users’ fingers can trigger them. The thumb-pad can be used for movement or even as a modifier to enable nearly endless spell combinations, which can be set through Razer’s cloud-based driver software Razer Synapse. With the Razer Orbweaver, gamers will be able to unleash a rain of spells, macros and abilities upon their opponents, all with incredible speed and efficiency.
“The Razer Orbweaver Chroma is the ultimate instrument of game control and style,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “It’s a powerful feeling to have all essential gaming keys at your fingertips, without any distractions, on a device that offers absolute comfort.”
The Razer Orbweaver joins other Chroma-enabled Razer devices, including the award-winning Razer DeathAdder Chroma and Razer Naga Epic Chroma gaming mice; the Razer BlackWidow Chroma gaming keyboard; the Razer Kraken 7.1 Chroma headset; and the Razer Firefly gaming mouse mat. All Chroma-enabled products feature 16.8 million customizable color options and a range of effects enabled through Razer’s Synapse driver software. Razer Synapse also allows for inter-device color synchronizing with just the click of a button.
