Roccat has today unveiled two brand new products, a gaming keyboard and a brand new mouse, which are set to bring a few new features to the traditional keyboard and mouse.
The Roccat Skeltr is the most interesting out the two, featuring a dock on the top of it, it can house your smartphone and use it to add extra functionality to the keyboard itself with the use of the companion application.
This works by connecting the keyabord and the smartphone together via Bluetooth, at which point the user will be able to use their phone as a second screen for the keyboard, allowing them to quick switch keyboard settings, change the brightness and colour of the keyboard and more.
Alongside the new keyboard, Roccat also announced a new gaming mouse called the Nyth, which has been designed specifically to be used whilst playing MMOs. Check out Rene Korte’s (Roccat’s CEO and founder) explanation of it below:
“We’ve wanted to develop our own MMO mouse for a long time, but like always, we end up seeing a bigger picture once we begin brainstorming.”
“MMO mice have these massive button grids that are locked in. You can change the button functionality, but what if you don’t like the layout?”
“With a replaceable side-part, coupled with our button modularity, the Nyth can absolutely transition into a perfectly fine-tuned MOBA mouse, and yes, even an FPS mouse.”
“The Nyth adapts, evolves, and keeps on giving far into the future. It’s a remarkable peripheral conceptualized and created by our amazing design team.”
As of yet we are still waiting on further specifications, and details on the prices for the products, but we expect that Roccat will reveal all next week.
