We already saw a couple of shots of what Cougar has been touting as their ultimate line of gaming peripherals but it seems like they are nearing release as this latest press release is flaunting the design achievements of Cougar’s peripherals.
The Cougar 700M and 700K are both aluminium-based peripherals with very intricate, tech-themed designs. The main take here is that Cougar is banging its PR drum for an imminent launch and if what we see is true then we can expect these two new products as the top-end offerings of their upcoming line.
The 700K is fully mechanical and features a large wrist-rest clad in an aluminium body. The 700M features extra buttons as well as a reinforced cable end.
From what we can see, they’re looking pretty good. Let’s just hope these land in the labs soon when they’re released.
COUGAR, leading PC case, power supply and computer peripherals brand has won design awards for two new gaming peripherals, an ultimate gaming mouse and an ultimate gaming keyboard.Â It took two years for COUGAR to develop the first aluminum framed gaming mouse, the 700M and keyboard, the 700K, and both have won theÂ iFÂ (International Design Award) of 2014. TheÂ iFDesign Awards are considered the design â€œOscarsâ€ in the IT/PC industry.
Design ConceptÂ behindÂ the COUGAR Gaming Mouse 700M is one of a “vertebrate” with metal support for â€œbonesâ€. This allows for customized ergonomic adjustments and players can transform the feel of it in accordance with customary gestures giving the right height. There is also a unique design idea for the side angle sniper button. At 45 degrees, the lateral force can be slower, so this design provides for a more accurate aim. The â€œmagazineâ€ and â€œmuzzleâ€ shape of the cable connectorÂ and its strain relief add to a more game-like feel.
Design ConceptÂ behindÂ the COUGAR Gaming Keyboard 700KÂ was inspired by military â€œstealth warshipsâ€ technology, the design is created from elements of geometric facets: mechanical key modules are mounted on an exposed, bent aluminum structure with premium anodized surface treatments, enabling more efficient typing bolstered by providing the players wrist support points. Intuitive key and button groupings are neatly integrated into the plastic frame, drawing attention to key areas so gamers can focus on their competitive matches.
These design awards further bolsters COUGARâ€™s reputation for excellent product design and creation. Look for the new COUGAR flagship gaming mouse, the 700M and keyboard, the 700K that will be officially launched on the market soon.
