If you have ever owned or ridden a bicycle as a kid, chances are you have popped a wheelie or attempted to do a stunt while on board. It's just simply human nature in action. While the machine itself is impressive to us the first time, human nature forces us to look at it beyond its basic functionality and try to look for other ways of riding or using the hardware. This relationship between mankind and tools is at the very foundation of our civilization. It's a sacred bond that is as true today when we grasp a computer mouse as it was back then when our distant hominid ancestors first took hold of a rock and used it to smash something open.
Input devices, like mice and keyboards, are important extensions that allow us to interface with the computer world. There are plenty of names in the market that offer a wide variety of products to choose from. Users in North America might not be familiar with Roccat yet, but they are a household name in Europe, especially around professional gaming circles. Now they are poised to make their presence much more pronounced in the North American market with a wider release of their product line. Their award winning Kone gaming mouse, for example, is regarded as one of the all-time best input devices crafted and a new upgraded version takes the performance to another level.
The Roccat Kone [+] is a high-end gaming mouse packed with plenty of features. The Roccat Kone [+] gaming mouse has a 6000 dpi capable laser sensor and a 1000Hz polling rate. Weighing in at 126g, the Roccat Kone [+] is heavier than most gaming mice and can be made even heavier with the addition of adjustable 5g weights included in the package. Unlike most input devices, the Roccat Kone [+] has a 72 MHz Turbo Core and a massive 576 kB onboard memory that allows users to store up to 5 game profiles at a time and an entire library of macros. The Roccat Kone [+] is also equipped with an EasyShift [+] function, which expands the 12 standard button assignments to 22 functions for extreme versatility without crowding the mouse surface with buttons.
