It's been a summer of major announcements for ROCCAT Studios, with a few more yet to come, the most recent being the E3 reveal of the in-development ROCCAT Sova Wireless Modular Gaming Board. The positive fan and media response to the Sova at E3 was massive, with fantastic articles and word of mouth. Building on the wave of enthusiasm for a wireless keyboard/mousepad combo custom made for a living room gaming experience, ROCCAT is immediately moving into its next phase of development for the Sova, and inviting our fans to join the ride.

Very nice.

I especially like that air-vent on the side. Don't want my key switches to fuse because I'm skill spamming like a boss.

It's not a air vent lol. It's were the USB and i believe the headphone\mic jacks are.

Shame they did not find a way to make it left handed too :p.

I just had a go at it to try out that position. Like... WHAT THE EFFFF... Must have been designed by someone whos shoulders are 30 centimeters apart.

The mousepad is waaaaaay to close to the left... by like a whole mousepad.

Fail design is fail.

I hope you know that it's possible to move it out pretty far before commenting.

although it looks cool, this gaming board not fit for newbie gamers for me...

(-)
1. too tight between keyboard n mousepad, some gamer will always slipped to the right of keyboard T^T
2. less space with wider size T^T
3. wider size means u must push your monitor further back T^T ,for 18,5 user it will be real problem(if u placed it above the desk)
4. wider size means u cant take it anywhere in your bag T^T
5. for littleman it will problem too because need more longer hand, i dont think that pad on the left was elastic XD
6. not every gamers use their keyboard and mouse side by side , some placed their keyboard under desk and mouse above desk close to monitor

(+)
1. wireless
2. had mouseboard :D i can playing game on my bed ,finally T^T

sry if my english bad, i still learn

The mousepad can slide to the right.

If you are good with making stuff, you can made some custom extensions for it.
