In addition to the Skeltr gaming keyboard, gaming peripherals manufacturer, ROCCAT Studios, introduced the Nyth gaming mouse at Gamescom 2014 in Cologne, Germany, this week. Nyth is a modular MMO (Massively Multiplayer Online) gaming mouse, allowing users to customize the layout by using a 3D printer to create buttons and side-parts to meet their needs.
"We've wanted to develop our own MMO mouse for a long time, but like always, we end up seeing a bigger picture once we begin brainstorming. MMO mice have these massive button grids that are locked in. You can change the button functionality, but what if you don't like the layout? Our solution is a wholly modular MMO mouse, with interchangeable button combinations that suit the player,” says René Korte, CEO and founder of ROCCAT, “No two gamers are alike, and because we know that, we've gone many steps beyond just allowing them to switch out the in-package button options. Our fans will have access to our button inventory files, and those that are into 3D printing can even create their very own."
"The Nyth's soul is MMO," René explains," but with high modularity comes versatility, and we capitalized on that in the design room. Not only is this an incredible, one of a kind MMO mouse, but with a replaceable side-part, coupled with our button modularity, the Nyth can absolutely transition into a perfectly fine-tuned MOBA mouse, and yes, even an FPS mouse. I wanted to know if we had the ability to create a hybrid mouse, a chameleon, which perfectly matches up with each gaming genre. The Nyth was the result of asking these questions, and I can tell you there is nothing like it in gaming. The Nyth adapts, evolves, and keeps on giving far into the future. It's a remarkable peripheral conceptualized and created by our amazing design team."
The Nyth gaming mouse is expected to be released later this year.
