Razer Announces Release of Orbweaver at CES

Company: Razer
Product: Razer Orbweaver

Razer has announced the release of the Razer Orbweaver, a customizable, mechanical gaming keypad designed with tournament-grade controls, ergonomics and full customization.

Picking up the gauntlet for the much lauded Razer Nostromo, the Orbweaver claims to let gamers bind an infinite number of controls to 20 mechanical keys and a programmable eight-way directional thumb-pad. These keys require a minimal 50 g of force to trigger, ensuring that commands are executed as fast as users' fingers can act—and faster than the enemy can react. The thumb-pad can be used for movement or as a modifier for even more combinations.

Armed with the Razer Orbweaver, gamers will gain an edge, being able to rapidly fire a vast number of spells, macros and abilities at their foes with hyper-responsive speed and efficiency.

"The Razer Orbweaver is the ultimate gauntlet of game control. The feeling of having every command at hand to destroy the competition in so many different ways is just sublime, and the tactile feedback and fast key actuation from the mechanical key architecture gives you a feeling of satisfaction and an added edge in the games you play."
- Min-Liang Tan, CEO of Razer.

The Razer Orbweaver delivers comfort over extended hours of play with its adjustable rests modules for the thumb, palm and wrist.
