Razer has announced the release of the Razer Ouroboros, a gaming mouse with fully-customizable ergonomics to suit a range of hand sizes and grips whether you're left- or right-handed.
We first got wind of the Ouroboros a few months back but today Razer made things official with specs and a release date (sort of). The mouse is designed with the idea that no two people have the same sized hands and everyone grips a mouse differently. To that end, Razer's tea of ergonomic scientists and engineers designed a mouse with several adjustable aspects so you can adjust the mouse to match how you personally grip the device.
The Ouroboros boasts two interchangeable side panels for altering the footprint of the mouse to suit claw, palm or hybrid grip styles, and has an adjustable back tilt angle to ensure palm support. It also packs enhanced sensor technology is capable of up to 8200 dpi, and a dedicated, built-in dpi clutch trigger button for precision. The Ouroboros runs on a rechargeable AA battery and Razer claims you'll get a minimum of 12 hours of play on one charge. Check out the full specs below:
- Customizable ergonomics to fit all hand sizes and grip styles
- 8200 dpi 4G Dual Sensor System
- Gaming-grade wireless technology with dock
- Razer Synapse 2.0 enabled
- 11 programmable Hyperesponse buttons
- 1000 Hz Ultrapolling/1 ms response time
- Up to 200 in. per sec./50 g acceleration
- 2.1 m/7 ft. braided fiber cable
- Approximate Size : 116 mm to 136 mm/4.57 in. to 5.35 in. (length) x 71 mm/2.80 in. (width) x 42 mm/1.65 in. (height)
- Approximate Weight: 115 g/0.25 lbs. (without battery) to 135 g/0.29 lbs. (with battery)
- Battery life: Approx. 12 hrs. (continuous gaming)
The Razer Ouroboros will set you back $129.99, or €129.99 if you're in Europe. Sadly, Razer didn't provide UK pricing. The mouse is expected to arrive at the end of the year. Razer didn't provide specifics on that past 'Q4' so keep your eyes peeled from October onwards.

gotta say, it looks interesting and hi-tech no doubt about it. also has some great specs and sounds like one helluva mouse. however, I am not a fan of the Synapse 2.0 software so far. maybe by the end of the year it will be much better.Reply
and I just gotta say this to, Razer mouses/mice are sure a tad pricey lately. I got a Guild Wars Death Adder for less than $50 way back and even a regular Death Adder on sale once for less than $30 at a local B&M store. now those were deals and are still some great Razer mouses (mice?).
Isn't this just like a rat9?Reply
Yep R.A.T looking!Reply
definitely a RAT ripoff.Reply
The worst thing about it being a R.A.T. rip-off is that the R.A.T. is too modular for it's own good. Having played around with one all of the gaps and edges make it very uncomfortable after some time with it, and the edges of this mouse don't seem any better looking.Reply
Ill buy this since im always in search of a better mouse!Reply
The name was strangely familiar...Resident Evil 5! :DReply
8200 dpi 4G Dual Sensor System
That high of a dpi is purely for bragging rights.
Owned 3 Razer products in the past and all three died within a year of purchase. Terrible quality and absolutely terrible customer support. Logitech has been where it is at.Reply
I've had 3 razers 2 diamondbacks one is still being used 5 years after purchase by my wife, the other had the soldering wear out by usb cord which i believe is repairable but as i am bad at soldering i just bought a razer naga been using for over a year no complaints with thier quality from me. this looks interesting might let the wife check it out see if she wants one to upgrade hers but when my naga bites it or reaches half a decade this will be on the possible replacement listReply
