Corsair teases concept Qi-charging Zeus mousemat and mouse

Plus a spill- and dust-resistant K68 keyboard.

Corsair was busy with concept ideas at Computex 2017. The Concept Zeus mousemat features Qi charging technology that, when paired with a compatible mouse, should take the need to explicitly charge a wireless rodent. The early prototype has charging in the top-right corner, though the final model will feature trickle charging across the entire surface. The mat can also be used to charge mobile phones, with Corsair providing an adapter for any without the technology built in. We expect to see a final version at the back end of this year.

Switching gears again, and mainly in response to the Internet Cafe market in the Far East, Corsair debuted the K68 keyboard outfitted with dust- and water-proof technology rated to IP32. It works by having a membrane around the Cherry keys and is handy if you keep drinks close by. Though the shown model in the video doesn't have per-key lighting, it's sensible to assume that Corsair will have such a keyboard in due course. Pricing for this one should be around $80, mind.

Great idea, maybe I'll finally ditch my cloth mats that I've had for years.
Agreed, it is a good idea, may actually make me consider buying a wireless mouse….
I'm guessing it's just charging through the mat and there will still be those pesky 2ms wireless data lags that people always say get you killed in FPSes? :D

Think about the chaos caused if these were all used at an esports events and everyone's mice interfered with each other!
