Thermaltake turned heads when it first released its artsy Level 10 chassis, and it hopes to have the same effect on people again with its soon-to-be-released Level 10 M mouse. Like the chassis, this mouse also results from the company’s collaboration with BMW DesignworksUSA, and to say that it stands out would be an understatement. In fact, many might even call it “weird” or unusable, but I think I’ll have to hold comment until I can actually use one.
Straying from the path of all other mice, the Level 10 M is missing half of its chassis – on purpose of course. Coupled with a collection of holes right in the center of where your hand will rest, the mouse is meant to keep sweating to a minimum. I admit I am not quite sure how this will work, however, as it just doesn’t seem logical. No fan is being employed here, though even if there was one, I still don’t think it’d have a great effect.
Some might consider the mouse to be a bit of a luxury product given its $100 price tag, but it’s being targeted towards gamers, boasting many configuration options and an aesthetic that gamers will be proud to show off. The odd design also allows gamers to adjust both the height and angle of the chassis in order to reach the most comfortable level, and as most of the mouse is comprised of aluminium, it should hopefully last a while.
If money were no object, would you jump on the Level 10 M, or does it leave a bit to be desired?
