A Closer Look
The Icemat has a square form, with rounded corners. It is matte and the different colors of the pad are realized by using the appropriate underlayer when producing the pad. The Icemat logo is located on the bottom right side, under the glace. This makes for a great "ice" effect, very nice.
Turning the pad around reveals the underlining. This is needed to reflect the laser and the light from optical mice. Everyone knows how a glass table is unsuitable for these type of mice. To keep the Icemat in place, there are several rubber nobs. These work great, but also increase the overall height of the pad.
