ROCCAT Invites you to Step into the Light at Gamescom 2017

ROCCAT Studios started the RGB illumination revolution ten years ago with the original Kone gaming mouse, one of the most popular and widely heralded gaming peripherals on the market. Now, ROCCAT has done it again, starting with our next-gen entry into the Kone family - the Kone AIMO. Gamers spoke and we listened, updating every aspect of the Kone to match their wants and needs. Ergonomically improved for better feel and comfort, with a tri-button thumb zone for greater control and a more robust 4D Titan Wheel. OMRON switches certified to fifty million clicks, with an updated SWARM driver system for easier use, and an Owl-Eye optical sensor modified to the high and exacting standards expected from a ROCCAT product.

The Kone AIMO is also the first in a series of ROCCAT peripherals designed out-of-box with intelligent RBG lighting that learns and adapts organically to player interaction, enhancing their experience rather than distracting. We call it Living Light. The AIMO lighting system exists in tandem with our already award-winning customizable illumination functionality.
