Thermaltake builds a designer gaming mouse

Posted by Shane McGlaun

Last year, Thermaltake built one of the coolest designer computer cases I've ever seen in conjunction with BMW-DesignWorks.

If you have one of the the Level 10  cases and want a gaming mouse to go with it, well, Thermaltake has unveiled just such a beast at CEBIT 2012. Of course, you should check out the slick Level 10 M Gaming Mouse even if you don't have a Level 10 rig. 

The input device boasts extreme sensitivity (800 dpi- 8200 dpi), which is obviously a big deal for gamers who play FPS titles with precise hand movements.

The mouse is also equipped with a red LED on the top that displays current user settings (1-4) at a glance.

In addition, the Level 10 features a total of seven buttons, including five programmable "Z" side buttons that offer up to 11 functions.

Of course, it goes without saying that the mouse has the edgy, high-tech look you would expect in a Level 10 accessory, with 7 programmable lighting effects. But the slick design is also functional, as it allows air to move through the mouse and up through holes in the palm rest to keep your hands cool.

The mouse will be available in three colors, including black, white, and military green. Unfortunately, pricing and availability have yet to be announced, which is really too bad, because I could really use the Level 10 right about now for long gaming sessions with Star Wars: The Old Repubic - thanks to its cooling properties and the programmable buttons.

And yes, the uber sensitive and customizable mouse would also be a perfect fit for games like Modern Warfare 3 and other FPS titles.
