Razer released the Turret: Gaming Lapboard And Mouse for Your Couch
Razer, the household name for gaming peripherals has come to save couch PC gamers. From the comfort of your couch in the living room you now can benefit from the precision and accuracy from using a Razer gear from using the Turret. It is a wireless keyboard and mouse set that is built to be as compact and as light as possible for you to rest on your lap while sitting on a couch. Kind of like the small wireless keyboard you see for multimedia PC purposes. Of course there are those who games from their couch using the traditional consoles but obviously using a PC to hook up to your Ultra HD 40″ television screen is so much better. Thus far for those gamers there has been no proper solution for their keyboard and mouse. With the Razer Turret, worry no more.
It has a dedicated mousepad for the bundled mouse to ensure precision and keep accuracy while not sacrificing comfort. It is connected to either a PC with an adaptor or a console via Bluetooth. The 1500 mAh (keyboard) and 1000 mAh (mouse) lithium polymer battery fitted into the lapboard and mouse can last up to 40 hours of non-stop gameplay and comes with a charging dock to keep them powered up. The keyboard is a gamer grade chichlet style with full anti ghosting feature while the mouse is a 3500 DPI sensored laser mouse. The keyboard also features a hinge when you want to stow it away or charge without obstructing your view or the flow of your living room. Press release after the break.
RAZER TURRET LIVING ROOM GAMING MOUSE AND LAPBOARD HIT STORES, ENABLES HIGH-PERFORMANCE WIRELESS PC GAMING FROM THE COUCH
High-precision lapboard and mouse combination offers gamers an “unfair advantage” in casual settings; extreme battery life, magnetic surface, dual-wireless connectivity ensure uninterrupted dominance
IRVINE, Calif. – Razer™, a world leader in connected devices and software for gamers, today announced the much-anticipated release of the Razer Turret, a mouse and integrated keyboard and mouse surface that together deliver the power of desktop-grade gaming peripherals into the laps of gamers. The combo was originally unveiled as a prototype in early 2015.
Designed with a focus on enabling a PC gaming experience from the couch, the Razer Turret consists of a gaming grade chiclet keyboard with full anti-ghosting and a highly precise gaming mouse with a 3500 DPI sensor. The integrated magnetic mouse mat ensures the mouse will not slip even during intense gaming sessions.
“The Razer Turret brings the immense world of PC gaming to a previously impossible frontier—the living room—where only consoles have traditionally roamed until now,” says Razer Co-Founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan. “Finally, we have a perfect solution for gamers to enjoy the unrivaled precision of a mouse and keyboard combination from the comfort of the couch with the durability and reliability that PC gamers demand.”
The Razer Turret comes with dual wireless connectivity, enabling users to play lag-free when connected to a console via Bluetooth LE or to a PC via the bundled wireless 2.4 GHz adaptor. The performance of the Razer Turret rivals desktop-grade gaming hardware, providing a tactical weapon that can be unleashed on opponents from a casual environment.
The Razer Turret’s ergonomic and ultra-slim form factor is made specifically to fit on a user’s lap. A foldable hinge ensures that the lapboard is unobtrusive and dock-able, leaving it a normal part of the living room environment when not in use.
Made to withstand even the most action-packed gaming marathons, the Razer Turret has built-in high-capacity lithium polymer batteries, so a player’s kill streaks will not be interrupted by untimely battery warnings. By supporting up to four months of usage on the keyboard (an estimated 40 hours of nonstop play on the mouse), Razer Turret owners won’t have to charge their gaming weapons after every use.
