Vigorous mouse clickers who suffer from clammy hands might find something to like in Thermaltake's Black Element Cyclone edition gaming mouse. Available sometime in August for $80, the mouse promises to keep sweat at a minimum by pushing cool air into the wet recesses of your palm with a removable 6,000 rpm 5V fan. The tiny fan manages 2.6 cubic feet per minute of airflow while achieving acceptable noise levels of 21.7dB. Powered by a tethered 1.8 meter USB cable, the fan-and-mouse amalgam looks a bit unusual but we'll know how it looks aesthetically once people actually get their slick hands on it. By itself, the mouse should keep most PC gamers content with a 6,500 dpi laser sensor and nine customizable macro keys with an adjustable weight of up to 22.5 grams. Is Thermaltake's Black Element Cyclone edition gaming mouse the perfect solution for sweltering hands? We'll find out soon enough.
