Razer, one of the biggest makers of high-performance gaming hardware, recently announced the release of the Razer Ouroboros at ChinaJoy 2012. No two people have the same sized hands, and everyone grips his or her mouse differently. When researching form factor preferences for ambidextrous mice, Razer's team of ergonomic scientists and engineers discovered three key factors in design: the length of the mouse, the back arch and the grip profile. With this in mind, the Razer Ouroboros is designed for precision gaming, with an adjustable palm rest capable of moving up to 0.9 in. (20 mm), suitable for varying hand sizes.
The Ouroboros additionally boasts of two interchangeable side panels for altering the footprint of the mouse to suit claw, palm or hybrid grip styles, and it has an adjustable back tilt angle to ensure palm support for gaming comfort and endurance. Its enhanced sensor technology is capable of up to 8200 dpi, and a dedicated, built-in dpi clutch trigger button ensures players can achieve pinpoint precision when needed. Powered by a single rechargeable AA battery, the Razer Ouroboros ensures a minimum of 12 hours of drag-free, lag-less play.

Adding even more versatility to the mix, Razer has included an upgraded 4G Dual Sensor System, and gaming-grade 1 ms wireless technology, providing the option for wired or wireless use.
“Designed for excellence and total ownage, the Razer Ouroboros was intended to be wielded by all serious gamers looking to win any FPS, RTS or RPG with custom-made dominance,” said Robert “RazerGuy” Krakoff, president of Razer USA. “We are proud to introduce it as Razer's first gaming mouse that features optimized, customizable, ambidextrous ergonomics that better fit the curvature of any and every hand size and personal grip style by delivering ultimate comfort, control, power and built-in intelligence to ascend to gaming immortality.“
The Razer Ouroboros ambidextrous wireless gaming mouse is designed for both right-handed and left-handed gamers. It offers fully customizable ergonomics and a fit for every hand size — big or small — by allowing the adjustment of the arched palm rest and back. Two interchangeable side panels ensure you're using your preferred grip style at all times.
Razer's highly advanced 8200 dpi 4G Dual Sensor System powers the mouse. This gaming-grade mouse sensor combines a laser and an optical sensor to enhance tracking precision and detect surfaces 10 times faster than previous generation sensors. Its dpi clutch lets you temporarily reduce or increase the dpi as you game, so you can go from high-sensitivity assault to more measured sniper, then back to assault again as needed.
The Razer Ouroboros will be available in Q4 of 2012 from RazerZone for $129.99 or €129.99.
