Thermaltake Intros Mouse With Finger-Cooling Fan

By - Source: Thermaltake | B 42 comments

It's a gaming mouse with a removable fan to keep your fingers cool.

Are your fingers burning up with all that twitch gaming? If so, Thermaltake as the answer for keeping those delicate digits cool with the release of the Black Element gaming mouse, Cyclone Edition. It's billed as the world's first gaming mouse with a fan-cooling design. That's right: it has a fan mounted right on the front, blowing air across your knuckles.

Based on the specs, it appears that the fan plugs into the mouse via a USB port mounted on the front, meaning it can be unplugged at any time. The fan speed is 6,000 RPM, the size is 30 x 30 x 10-mm, and the life expectancy is 50,000 hours. The noise level is 21.7 dB while the max airflow is 2.7 CFM.

As for the actual mouse, it features a Tt Pro Grade Gaming laser sensor 6500 DPI Engine (100 - 6500 DPI Adjustable), an OMRON gaming switch capable of up to 5 million keystrokes, nine fully customizable macro keys, an industrial-grade rubber-coating finish for better gripping, on-board 128KB memory storage for 45 macro keys in five game profiles, and a braided USB cable with a gold-plated connector.

Also on the list of specs is a weight-in design, allowing users to adjust the gadget's weight of up to 22.5g to suit their specific preference. The gadget's pause-break lighting effect can also be adjusted with five different colors including red, blue, green, light blue and pink (Marcus' favorite color). Unfortunately, the fan doesn't offer any lighting effects -- that would have been really cool, no pun intended.

For more information about the Black Element Cyclone Edition gaming mouse, head here. So far there's no word on availability and pricing, but local retailers include Best Buy, Radio Shack, CompUSA, Tiger Direct and more.

    How about a mouse with a palm warmer? Or a keyboard that blows cool air from behind the keys? Or how about sharks lazers on their friggen heads!

    Thermaltake also sells a keyboard with a small fan mounted on the upper left corner. I guess they're selling this mouse to partner with their keyboard.

    Nifty but should be temperature controlled. I'd prefer having the fan inside the mouse with exhaust vents on top and intake vents along the sides or bottom.

    havent used a closed can headset in years, that may be a good idea in summer months, i remember how sweaty me head got when i still used them... though that may have been the padding material.

    you want to make a finger cooling mouse right, you put the fan inside, and have the top where your hand is mesh so it cools from the bottom up.

    i can see this working for people with sweaty palms.

    killerclickIf you're wondering why Apple makes more money than any other tech company, stuff like this should be a clue.


    All this mouse needs is white color and some fitting iName slapped on it and people will buy it like no tomorrow.

    After all this is like apple products, high price and delivers nothing.

    I don't know what is sadder : that crap like this exist or there are morons who actually buy them.

    The only time my fingers sweat is when I'm browsing porn.
