The humble used to be a simple product without any fancy features drawing unnecessary attention. With the rise of RGB accessories, however, manufacturers have begun to introduce RGB to mousepads, including the company SteelSeries. The Danish gaming peripherals manufacturer recently launched the QcK Prism mousepad with a bunch of LEDs and other interesting features. Here is the company’s announcement:
The QcK Prism is the world’s first dual-surface RGB illuminated mousepad, featuring a premium micro-textured cloth that adds friction for more deliberate movements and a hard polymer surface for a fast-paced glide. The QcK Prism comes with brilliant 360-degree, 12-zone Prism RGB illumination with advanced lighting effects and supports SteelSeries GameSense, providing reactive illumination to in-game events such as low ammo, health, kills, cooldown timers and more.
While it’s not exactly true that the QcK Prism is the first RGB mousepad, SteelSeries is right when it says it’s the first dual-surface RGB mousepad. On top of the RGB lighting, another major draw lies in the performance benefits it lends to PC gaming from the dual-sided surface that allows for flipping within its RGB frame. One side consists of a micro-textured cloth that provides friction while the other side is a hard polymer pad that facilitates quick, smooth gliding.
The mousepad measures in at 292.4 x 8.68 x 356.72mm, two pounds, and features a cable length of 1.8m. You can also customize the mousepad with various RGB effects which you can tie to in-game events including low ammo, health, and kills, among others.
SteelSeries further adds:
In addition to the millions of colors and lighting effects, the QcK Prism also supports SteelSeries Prism Sync. Gamers can create dynamic multi-color lighting effects between the QcK Prism and all other Prism-enabled gear, including the Arctis 5 headset, Rival 700 mouse and Apex M800 keyboard. The QcK Prism was made with a game-tested design. Unlike all other RGB mousepads, the cable housing is positioned out of the way, on the left side, where it will not catch a gamer’s mouse cable.
The QcK Prism is available to purchase from SteelSeries’ website for €74.99 ($59.99).
