Gaming peripheral guru [b][url="http://www.razerzone.com/store/gaming-mouse-pads"]Razer[/url][/b] today unveiled its collection of mouse mats for 2013 and 2014, which consists of the Razer Invicta, Razer Manticor, Razer Destructor 2, and Razer Megasoma 2. All four were supposedly engineered with new construction methods for a superior finish and treated with "performance-boosting sensor-reactive surface coatings," but what's really interesting is a sub 3-minute video walking viewers through the design process.

We'll get to that in a moment, but first a rundown of the new mouse surfaces. First up is the [url="http://www.razerzone.com/gaming-mouse-pads/razer-invicta"]Razer Invicta[/url], which is an all-in-one mat with a slick-smooth surface on one side for ultra-fast moving mouse speed, and a rough texture on the opposite side for precise control. It's available for pre-order now ($60).

Second up is the [url="http://www.razerzone.com/manticor"]Razer Manticor[/url], billed as offering the smoothest glide yet. It's stamped and sandblasted out of a single sheet of aircraft-grade aluminum and sports a non-slip rubber base. It carries an MSRP of $50 and is available to pre-order as well.

Next is the [url="http://www.razerzone.com/destructor2"]Razer Destructor 2[/url] designed with next-gen mouse sensors in mind. It has a micro-texture finish and is also available for pre-order, priced at $40.

Last up is the [url="http://www.razerzone.com/megasoma2"]Razer Megasoma 2[/url], a hybrid soft/hard mat that's supposed to be both flexible and offer precise control. It's built with a durable anti-static, anti-fraying finish and is available to purchase now for $40.

As promised, we've embedded below Razer's video detailing the design process of the Invicta mat. The video starts with concept drawings and goes all the way through factory manufacturing, giving viewers a unique glimpse into hardware design.

Ditto, they were only useful with ball mice.

Haven't used one in a long time either. But I do admit that they come in handy for gaming to help muffle the endless mouse clicks from vibrating through the table. I just use a stack of old papers instead.

I agree that pads with this silicone wrist support are quite addicting.
