    SteelSeries, the leading manufacturer of gaming peripherals and accessories, today during the 2010 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, introduced the SteelSeries NP+ Mousepad. The new, large surface was designed for gamers and mouse users who prefer a thick and rough glide surface. The pressure compressed fibers allows for extreme durability making it water and most-stain resistant.

    "We work with a number of professional gamers that have a wide assortment of preferences when it comes to the surface they're playing on or the level of glide and friction they prefer, said Bruce Hawver, SteelSeries CEO. "The SteelSeries NP+ was designed for those that prefer a rough glide and large area surface. The water and stain resistant material makes this surface, our most unique textile mousepad."

    Unlike any other surface that SteelSeries offers, the SteelSeries NP+ is specifically targeted for gamers that prefer a medium to rough glide and higher level of mouse to surface friction. Regardless of their preference, users can effectively operate an optical or laser mouse on the 17.7 x 15.7 surface. Its non-slip rubber base provides a firm grip and prevents the pad from sliding no matter what surface the SteelSeries NP+ is placed on.

    SteelSeries NP+ Mousepad will be available at leading online retailers with an MSRP of EUR 24,99 beginning in March 2010.

    hmm I think I'll buy one to try one, my QCK+ heavy has been in heavy use for a few years now and its quite dirty and a bit ragged at this point.

    how many peoples mousemats actually soak up water these days?? I use a Razor Destructor mousemat.

    mousemats today are made out of plastics, metal & in some extreme cases molded kevlar

    but I suppose this is fine if you still have one of them soft spongey old IBM or Microsoft mouse mats like they had back in the 70-80's

    a worthy upgrade for a 20-30year old mouse mat...

    actually thats pretty desturbing - people that have mousemats older then me!!

    By saying that it's Waterproof I suppose that it's also semen-proof ?

    A must have for a porn fan like me :D

    No more using bleach to clean that thing off your keyboard xD

    Isn't there some hint of irony in this?

    Like, the fact that your mouse is on TOP of the pad, which would take the brunt of whatever you spilled?

    I swear some things really are novelties.

    Not entirely semen proof, but water proof for when you grab a soapy hand towel and try to clean it off.
