SteelSeries har lavet en stor artikel om laser mus, med masser af facts. Og her kommer de også ind på udviklingen af deres egen SteelSeries Ikari mus. Det er ganske interessant læsning - desværre er det på engelsk man tag et kig alligevel.
Her er et citat fra artiklen: At first glance today’s laser gaming mice looks awesome. The technical specifications and features in gaming mice are constantly improving and have now reached levels that would have been considered science-fiction just a few years ago. The constant improvement in the technical specs (and the ridiculous focus on these) means that the technical specs usually dominate the packaging on gaming mice, explaining how dramatically improved this mouse is over its predecessor or over similar competing products. All kinds of different manufacturers promise the Holy Grail when it comes to describing what their mice can do. Laser technology, 4.000 DPI, a high number of buttons, Burst-Fire-Button, glowing colors, gold-plated USB connectors and “always on hyper ultra something” are just some of the features that are offered to us, in the mouse manufacturers quest of making their potential customer one of the top gamers in the world. According to these companies every top gamer would be even better when using a 4.000 DPI laser mouse. “For gamers by gamers”, “created for gaming”, “the ultimate gaming mouse”, “hardcore gaming” – you’ll find all these statements, and many more, when browsing today’s gaming mice.
