So are you left handed or right handed? I’ve never really thought about it before but the majority of gaming mice are made for right handed people. I guess I never thought about it because I’m right handed and mice just work for me. Razer has thought it though and they’ve just announced the Taipan which can be used with either the left or right hand it seems. The mouse features an 8200dpi sensor and it will cost $79.99 in July.

RAZER TAIPAN MOUSE

 

Razer, the world leader in high performance gaming hardware, today introduced the Razer Taipan, an ambidextrous gaming mouse that sets a new standard for versatility, form and function. Over its storied history, Razer has placed itself at the forefront of the video gaming industry by combining cutting-edge technology with ergonomic research. The Razer Taipan is the latest expression of the brand’s unique approach to engineering and design, the culmination of the years of diligence and validation from the brand’s e-Sports professionals.

Razer’s ergonomic scientists collaborated with top e-Sports athletes from professional gaming teams such as Empire, Frenetic Array, Mousesports, Quantic, Rox.Kis and Type II Gaming, to pinpoint the optimal shape, weight, and balance required in an ambidextrous mouse at the highest levels of gameplay. Its symmetrical shape with narrow footprint and arched back make it comfortable for a wide variety of players. The weight distribution of the mouse has also been tweaked for the most optimal grip profile.

Powered by Razer’s new 8200 dpi 4G Dual Sensor System, the Razer Taipan slips an unfair advantage into the hand that wields it. The mouse combines laser and optical sensors that are not only responsive and precise, but also allow Z-axis tracking and liftoff cutoff customization to ensure that aim is always true.

About the Razer Taipan Gaming Mouse:

With an all-new 8200 dpi 4G Dual Sensor System, the Razer Taipan is armed with laser and optical sensors that accurately calibrate to any surface for exceptional pinpoint tracking. Whether you are a right-hander or a south-paw, palm or fingertip-grip user, with Razer’s improved ambidextrous ergonomics, expect maximum comfort and reduced fatigue over long periods of gaming. Fight longer as your foes rage-quit in exhaustion.

The Razer Taipan, driven by Razer’s intuitive proprietary software, Synapse 2.0, the world’s first cloud-based storage software for gaming peripherals, automatically syncs users’ custom profiles and settings on a virtual server. This relinquishes the need to set up the Razer Taipan at tournaments and LANs and allows for easy porting and setting replication to a new Razer gaming mouse. Strike fear into the hearts of your foes, a triumphant victory is at-hand with the Razer Taipan.
