Razer has unveiled a few days ago, their new mouse from the “expert” category (most expensive). It is a new ambidextrous mouse named “Razer Ouroboros”.
The name comes from an ancient symbol, Ouroboros being a snake that is eating his tail, “re-creating itself, the eternal return”.
It we never heard about that snake, “Ouroboros” takes us thinking of something very high tech, a space ship or a Starcraft unit. The idea is that the mouse looks very high tech, having three detachable parts, the two sides and the rear cover that can get its position adjusted so the user can get more comfort for his wrist.
Razer Ouroboros can be used both wired and non-wired, the detachable sides can help the user to adjust his grip, if they prefer to play using a thinner or a larger mouse, also the mouse being designed for both those with smaller or larger hands.
A few lights can be seen from the released pictures, the three short lines as the Ouroboros logo, scroll light and two lights on the sides, all lights being green while the mouse is fully black.
Tech specs. 8200dpi 4G Dual Sensor System, Razer Synapse 2.0 is available (syncing software), 11 buttons that can be assigned to any keyboard key using the software provided by Razer, 1ms response time, 12 hours of continuous gaming (battery life).
Supports Windows XP, Vista, 7 and Macs.
There is no exact release date yet for Razer Ouroboros but we can see on the official website, razerzone.com, that the mouse will be available since Q4, 2012.
The price is available, the mouse will cost 130 euro.
With Razer Ouroboros, Razer is somehow concluding with the ambidextrous choices (they usually don’t release more than three mice models for a category, except the themed ones like Tron, Starcraft 2 etc). Razer Lachesis is missing from the list now and is replaced by Ouroboros.
