As the world celebrated Star Wars Day, May 4, Razer, an American global gaming hardware manufacturing company, launched a new line of peripherals themed after the worst shots in the galaxy – Imperial Stormtroopers to commemorate the day.
This new collection includes the Razer BlackWidow Lite mechanical keyboard, the Razer Atheris wireless mouse, and the Razer Goliathus Extended gaming mouse mat – all now available in a stylish white and black Stormtrooper themed edition.
Exhibiting the iconic stormtrooper design, the keyboard as well as the wireless mouse are built to enhance productivity and performance. They are suitable for both office and home usage. The Star Wars themed mouse mat actually completes the set. This huge mouse mat is supposed to represent the Empire’s broad reach across the galaxy and has an anti-fray design along with a non-slip rubber base. It is a cloth mat which will cost you $34.99.
This tenkeyless mechanical keyboard features Razer’s Orange mechanical switches, which are silent and tactile. In addition to its swank white and black colour combination Razer has put O-rings on the switches just to mimic a stormtrooper’s silent nature. There aren’t any dedicated media controls like the ones on its more expensive keyboards, but there is white backlighting, which can be dialled up or down in brightness. The keyboard comes with a price tag of $99.
The Razer Atheris is an ambidextrous mouse that Razer says is for both gaming and productivity. They claim of 300 hours of wireless operation on a pair of AA batteries. The mouse is priced at $59.99.
“Star Wars is a cultural phenomenon with a rich history not only in cinema, but also in gaming,” said Razer Co-Founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan. “We are excited to join forces with Lucasfilm to create this special collection for our biggest fans and to bring the design of the saga’s most iconic characters to gaming peripherals.”
A shout out to all the Star Wars fans! The all new stormtrooper themed peripherals are must-haves in your desktop collection.
The products are for sale on Razer’s site (www.razer.com ), and if you order all three together, the company may give you some discount on the buy.
