ROCCAT Launches Lua Gaming Mouse


German gaming peripherals manufacturer, ROCCAT Studios, unveiled their new Lua Tri-Button Gaming Mouse simultaneously at the Computex expo in Taipei and E3 2012 in Los Angeles on June 5th, 2012. Described as "The Classic 3-Button Mouse: Re-Mastered," the Lua packs advanced gaming engineering into a sleek and clean ambidextrous form that offers a comfortable fit for every gamer's hand.

"We took the beloved three-button mouse design and injected it with our innovative gaming engineering – and created a killer tool that gives props to the past while heading boldly into the future. The Lua delivers everything gamers need for control, comfort and style – all in a sleek and slim design that offers perfect comfort for every hand."
- Renι Korte, ROCCAT Founder and CEO

The Lua's advanced Pro Optic R2 sensor features a choice of seven DPI settings (250, 500, 1000, 1250, 1500, 1750 and 2000), allowing gamers to customize their Lua mouse to match their personal play style and level of accuracy. It also has a dedicated DPI button that lets players easily change speeds on-the-fly. Gamers can also program the button to avoid DPIs they don't typically use, reducing the amount of toggling required to get to their desired DPI.

The Lua's ultra-precise 2D scroll wheel also lets gamers give every wheel command with absolute precision. Every incremental step locks securely into place, to prevent over-scrolling and the potentially game-ending annoyance of selecting the wrong weapon. Plus, the Lua's advanced scroll wheel delivers solid tactile feedback, so gamers can actually feel their way to more accurate gaming.

Thanks to its symmetric, ambidextrous V-shaped design, the Lua delivers supreme comfort to both left- and right-handers. Plus, it features No Sweat side grips that ensure a steady hold even when the action gets hot – as well as a soft touch surface that lets gamers play comfortably during extended sessions.

The Lua also features a large ROCCAT logo illuminated in arctic blue with a "breathing" effect, so gamers will always know that their Lua is alive and well and awaiting the next command. The Lua comes standard with ROCCAT Driver software, which lets users easily customize their mouse buttons using a clean, simple-to-use interface.

And last, but certainly not least, the Lua is durably constructed using high-quality materials and advanced technology. From its premium electronics – featuring Omron switches and cutting-edge encoder – to its PTFE Teflon feet that deliver low-friction gliding, everything on the Lua is built to last and designed to give players a competitive edge.

The ROCCAT Lua will hit shelves internationally July / August 2012 for a MSRP of $29.99. For more information, check out ROCCAT's official website.
