CES 2018 Day 2 Coverage

CES 2018

From random pizza parties with Google to seeing a beloved gaming accessory maker coming back to life, day two of CES 2018 proved to be an eventful one. Here’s a look at some of the more exciting things we got our hands on.

9 Lives

Gaming accessory maker Mad Catz is making a comeback with some exciting new products coming out this year. The company is perhaps best known for its R.A.T. gaming mouse, and it is not only bringing it back to market, but also updating it with some new tricks.

Mad Catz is joining numerous companies who are creating wireless mice that are charged through a mousepad with the R.A.T. Air. It has super capacitors in the mouse that allow it to charge on a Mad Catz mousepad, which plugs into the computer. The mouse can even be lifted up off the mousepad for up to 20 seconds before it loses connection. The washable mousepad is two-sided, with one cloth side and one matte, slippery side.

The mouse comes with all the bells and whistles you would expect, including RGB, hardware saved profiles and 10 programmable buttons. It can also be plugged into a USB port on the mousepad if you want to take it on the go.

Wireless for All

Corsair launched three new wireless products at CES that are all designed to work together. For the K63 Wireless keyboard, Corsair opted to use cherry switches and ditch the industry standard RGB for good reason. While backlit at 100 percent brightness, Corsair promises a solid 13 hours of wireless battery life. At 50 percent brightness, you can expect 22-24 hours of battery life, and you can get a whopping 70-75 hours of battery life without any backlight.

The keyboard pairs nicely with the brand new Dark Core and Dark Core SE wireless gaming mice. The mice have a ludicrously high 16,000 DPI optical sensor with an amazingly low 1 ms respond time. The Dark Core has a battery life expectancy of 24 hours before needing a recharge.

The Dark Core SE is another story. The SE variant uses Qi wireless charging, and when paired with Corsair’s new MM1000 Qi wireless charging mousepad, can be charged directly on the mousepad. These creates a technically unlimited wireless solution so long as you remember to place the mouse on the Qi charging location in the upper right-hand corner of the mousepad.
