Gaming accessories maker Mad Catz hopes you’ll take apart their new mouse.
We stopped by to chat with the company’s global public relations lead, Alex Verrey, about the three new gadgets they’re launching this week for CES 2016. One of them is a minimalist, $30 mouse that breaks into three pieces — on purpose.
The R.A.T. 1 sensor unit, which includes the laser and buttons, can be used separately for laptop mousing or presentations. And the palm rest can be customized and replaced. We’ll let Verrey show you:
The mouse picked up a CES 2016 Innovations Award honor. The show awards also featured Mad Catz’s Tritton Katana Wireless HD 7.1 headset, the first to use an HDMI connector to play 8-channel surround sound.
The headset features 50mm drivers, an omnidirectional boom microphone that can automatically block or enhance your voice, and wireless connections for PC, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 3 gaming. On Xbox, it uses a pass-through port for an included 3.5mm cable.
The Tritton Katana is available for preorder at $250 and ships in March.
The company also showed off its E.S. Pro 1 gaming earbuds, which ship in two weeks and use a standard 3.5mm audio jack. They offer 13.5mm speakers and a removable omnidirectional boom mic with noise and echo suppression. There’s also a separate in-line mic for use when not gaming. Tiny rubber arms keep the earbuds seated.
The E.S. Pro 1 earbuds retail for $50.
