German gaming brand ROCCAT recently announced the launch of their new Max Customization Gaming Mouse, ROCCAT Kone [+] in the UAE in partnership with Uber Technologies.
Kone [+] features 10.5 megapixel resolution and a 1000Hz polling rate, with up to 30Gs of acceleration and speeds of up to 200ips (5.08m/s) without loss or lag. The Tracking and Distance Control Unit (TDCU) is now integrated in the laser sensor designed to allow the mouse to control lift-off distance as well as fine-tune the sensor to suit the Mousepad for optimal tracking.
“The ROCCAT Kone[+] – Max Customization Gaming Mouse packs a huge amount of performance under its hood thanks to the use of the revolutionary 6000dpi Pro-Aim Laser Sensor R2. It successed the award-winning Kone is the result of many years’ experience in engineering and industrial design, plus extensive feedback from the gaming community. Never before has perfectly formed design and high-performance technology been so closely intertwined. A clear focus on gamers’ needs has given rise to a mouse that is packed with unique innovations and an unprecedented range of customizable configuration options”, said Ganesh Venugopal, Head of Sales – UBER Technologies.
Roccat has also made improvements to the mouse wheel and surrounding buttons, including the introduction of the EasyShift[+] Button, which is designed to allow two functions to be assigned to each button, like using the Shift key on a keyboard.
The eight programmable buttons plus the mouse wheel can now directly trigger an unparalleled 22 mouse functions – with all the buttons remaining easily accessible. A second button can be used for the EasyAim function. While the EasyAim button is held depressed, a preselected DPI setting is automatically switched to – really useful in situations such as when precise in-game aiming is called for, where lower DPI settings are quickly required. It really lives up to its name. The EasyWheel function works in the same way and can be used to control the Aero Flip 3D feature in Windows 7, among other things.
The feature-rich driver has been further enhanced with additional innovative functions making it possible to customize the mouse to suit individual needs like no other mouse.
Macro Manager makes creating custom command sequences really easy. Predefined Macro Presets for the top 20 PC games as well as several office apps make it even easier to customize the mouse – plus the new Loop Function now makes it possible to loop macros indefinitely.
All the settings can be saved in five Game Profiles on the mouse’s 576KB of on-board memory, and linked to games and apps, allowing button configurations, lighting set-ups and DPI settings, etc., to be automatically loaded when the game is started. A Windows Profile then automatically switches the Kone[+] back to the previously selected default setting as soon as the game is exited.
