Infinium announces Phantom Lapboard

Posted on Saturday, December 31 2005 @ 0:45 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
Infinium Labs has been promising the launch of their Phantom console for quite a while now - many people believe it's vaporware - and now it looks like they will finally release something.

But it won't be their console, it will be a wireless keyboard and mouse designed for gaming. With the Phantom Lapboard the company aims to offer gamers a more intuitive interface and they will take lefties in mind, too.

The keyboard will rotate for either right- or left-handed gamers, with two sets of inverted T-directional keys.
Infinium's Phantom Lapboard has a range of 30 feet, places the mouse under the keyboard to keep hands closer together, and features full-size keys and an extended space bar—all in the name of optimizing your gaming experience.

The Lapboard is part of a broader online offering to be delivered by Infinium, including a wide-ranging library of broadband games with both the avid gamer and the casual participant in mind.
