Razer Ouroboros Gaming Mouse Pictured by FCC

Razer is working on a new ambidextrous gaming mouse called Ouroboros. The mouse was pictured by FCC for its clearance inspection. It reveals a symmetric, edgy design, which is a breakaway from Razer's traditional curvy designs. With large main buttons and a restrained main body, the mouse appears to have been designed for both claw and palm grips. Apart from its main buttons and a scroll wheel, the mouse has six macro buttons that are symmetrically located. The thumb-rests on either sides of the mouse appear to be detachable, making the mouse ideal for claw grip. The mouse is pictured next to its detachable braided USB cable. More details are awaited.

still ugly
Cant say I care if my mouse looks pretty. Though I have found that ugly ones are generally less nice in the hand.

How are Razer's software layers? For the programmable mice I mean, do they add too much/noticeable latency? Or do they keep it pretty slim?

As soon as i seen it i thought of the ads that used to annoy me so many years ago about woman's pads NOW! with wings.

Razer NOW! with wings.


Anyways those side buttons seem totally wrong, i like the idea of the wings on the side but over the years i got used to not having them on a mouse and actually use my little picky to slow the mouse.

As as for the ugly part don't care as long as i can use claw grip with it as there is no mouse i can fully hold in my hand anyways without reverting to claw grip..

This could be Razer trying to reinvent themselves, hence the name Ouroboros.

This thing makes Razer look like they are grasping at straws for innovation.

If anything Razer should be doing the weight thing, like Logitech.
If their mice were heavier I would be inclined to purchase.

It's like the RAT and Leetgion Hellion had a baby.

Maybe the top-down shot just happens to be particularly unflattering? Otherwise it doesn't look good, especially if Ouroboros is more than just a name.

Their Imperator is a G5 rip, and now their Ouroboros is a R.A.T rip.

looks too much like a R.A.T. mouse.
Though the R.A.T. series may not look the prettiest for most people, they are comfortable

I have a RAT and yes this look a bit like a one. It's the adjustable butt (?) and the thumb and pinkie rests that made it look like a RAT.

What else can they design? Most of the radical mouse designs featured in TPU are usually called ugly or ripped from other mouse.

It's like calling the Russian/Indian and Chinese stealth fighter jets ripping off the American F-22 Raptor and the F-35 fighter designs (and new Chinese helicopters looking a lot like the cancelled Comanche). Those are the very defining shape of current stealth and it's easier to just rip off from those since they are a proven design.

At least no one did what Apple did : patenting a basic shape.

Blame the people who elected members of gov't who passed laws allowing for these patents.
