Razer, the world’s leading high-end precision gaming and lifestyle peripherals brand, is pleased to announce that Ed Larkin of Mouse Bungee has joined Razer’s innovation team. Larkin brings classic design elements to Razer’s product line with his unprecedented talent, he will soon be adding to Razer’s award-winning design team.

“I fondly remember playing the original Quake with my Mouse Bungee and I loved not having to deal with tangling wires anymore. It was a simple but innovative solution to a problem common to so many gamers” says Min-Liang Tan, CEO & Creative Director of Razer. “I’m proud to have a talent like Ed on our team and am excited about the ideas and inspiration he will bring on board.”

It is that kind of environment that turns out phenomenal gaming products and I’m looking forward to being a part of it.”

Got this in my email a few days ago, honestly the stupidest idea ever. Rebranding what's already on the market and asking a price premium for it. Then again, it's not as stupid as anyone who buys it.

Anyone else happy with just yanking the mouse real quick when there's a snag?

So this Min-Liang Tan is the creative director, not the 'razer guy'?

Also, if this Ed Larkin is done with his job advising, (in which I suppose he wont be doing several bungies), will he just slack around in the office and do facebook all day?

Korean Starcraft pro gamers use them. I'm sure other pro gamers do as well.

But for the noob/average idiot this will make zero difference.

You just named the a good portion of Razer products, tbh. All of their headsets, for example. Razer is overpriced junk anymore.

The hate is directed at Razer for me, not this product. How much do you want to bet they charge a ridiculous amount for it, when I can get one for less than $10.

I haven't found a wireless mouse I like yet. I'm still using my A4Tech X750's (and the OCZ Equalizer rebrand of it). I tried numerous mice, even some $75+ mice, but keep coming back to my el-cheapo $25 mice.
