INFINITE CONTROL AND 16.8 MILLION COLOR OPTIONS WITH THE RAZER ORBWEAVER CHROMA MECHANICAL GAMING KEYPAD
Razer refreshes its top-of-the-line, mechanical gaming keypad, featuring adaptable ergonomics and Chroma lighting for maximum control and customizability
COLOGNE, Germany (Gamescom 2015) — Razer™, a world leader in connected devices and software for gamers, today announced the launch of the Razer Orbweaver Chroma, a customizable, mechanical, ergonomic gaming keypad that is specifically designed for tournament-grade controls and color synchronization with other Chroma-enabled devices.
Building on the success of the original Razer Orbweaver, the all-new Razer Orbweaver Chroma provides gamers with 20 fully programmable Razer Mechanical Switches; an eight-way directional thumb-pad; adjustable hand, thumb and palm modules; and now, with all of the beloved lighting features first seen on the Razer BlackWidow Chroma keyboard.
The built-in green Razer Mechanical Switches come with a required actuation force of 50 grams, ensuring that commands are executed as fast as users’ fingers can trigger them. The thumb-pad can be used for movement or even as a modifier to enable nearly endless spell combinations, which can be set through Razer’s cloud-based driver software Razer Synapse. With the Razer Orbweaver, gamers will be able to unleash a rain of spells, macros and abilities upon their opponents, all with incredible speed and efficiency.
“The Razer Orbweaver Chroma is the ultimate instrument of game control and style,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “It’s a powerful feeling to have all essential gaming keys at your fingertips, without any distractions, on a device that offers absolute comfort.”
The Razer Orbweaver joins other Chroma-enabled Razer devices, including the award-winning Razer DeathAdder Chroma and Razer Naga Epic Chroma gaming mice; the Razer BlackWidow Chroma gaming keyboard; the Razer Kraken 7.1 Chroma headset; and the Razer Firefly gaming mouse mat. All Chroma-enabled products feature 16.8 million customizable color options and a range of effects enabled through Razer’s Synapse driver software. Razer Synapse also allows for inter-device color synchronizing with just the click of a button.
