  • ROCCAT shows the Next-Gen Kone gaming mouse 
  • Horde redefines gaming keyboards with Membrane 2.0 
  • AIMO is the evolution of RGB illumination

Hamburg, August 22nd, 2017 – ROCCAT Studios started the RGB illumination revolution ten years ago with the original Kone gaming mouse, one of the most popular and widely heralded gaming peripherals on the market. Now, ROCCAT has done it again, starting with our next-gen entry into the Kone family - the Kone AIMO.

Gamers spoke and we listened, updating every aspect of the Kone to match their wants and needs. Ergonomically improved for better feel and comfort, with a tri-button thumb zone for greater control and a more robust 4D Titan Wheel. OMRON switches certified to fifty million clicks, with an updated SWARM driver system for easier use, and an Owl-Eye optical sensor modified to the high and exacting standards expected from a ROCCAT product.

The Kone AIMO is also the first in a series of ROCCAT peripherals designed out-of-box with intelligent RBG lighting that learns and adapts organically to player interaction, enhancing their experience rather than distracting. We call it Living Light. The AIMO lighting system exists in tandem with our already award-winning customizable illumination functionality.

Introducing Membrane 2.0: With the Horde, the next peripheral in the AIMO family, ROCCAT redefines what gamers know about membrane gaming keyboards. What we call Membrane 2.0, was designed from scratch by our in-house product development team. Deeply researched for ease of use, lightning-fast execution between button press and on-screen action, and built to prevent dirt from accumulating within, the new ROCCAT Horde AIMO is a genuinely new membrane keyboard experience. Also utilizing the AIMO lighting system, it along with all upcoming AIMO family peripherals will work together in one intelligent RGB lighting ecosystem.

Both the Kone AIMO and Horde AIMO will be presented at this year’s Gamescom 2017.

Kone AIMO will be available at retail in September in black, grey and white for 79.99USD/EUR, while Horde AIMO will hit shelves in November at a price to be announced.
