The idea of creating gaming peripherals that help users enjoy an enhanced level of realism within their favorite games is not exactly new, but the people over at Mad Catz seem quite keen on taking it to a whole new level by releasing a couple of new gaming peripherals that come equipped with amBX technology.
For those of you who're not exactly familiar with this topic, it's important to point out that amBX technology provides a completely new and innovative level of control over lighting and additional accessories in such a way as to extend the content on the screen beyond the display's physical boundaries.
For this reason, Mad Catz
has decided to incorporate this technology into its Cyborg Gaming Keyboard with amBX technology and Cyborg Gaming Lights with amBX technology, each of these products, set to be available in early 2011, providing a couple of features gamers will certainly find to be particularly attractive.
For example, the Cyborg Gaming Lights with amBX technology consist of twin light pods which can be positioned around a PC monitor and, after being plugged in the computer's USB port, react to in-game amBX commands and deliver up to 16 million colors, matching the virtual environment created within the game.
The Cyborg Gaming Keyboard with amBX technology features laser-etched keys, as well as full RGB back lighting capable of displaying up to 16 million colors which react dynamically to on screen game play.
Moreover, the keyboard offers Anti-Ghosting of the WASD keys, as well as multiple macro-assignment options.
Darren Richardson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz commented, “We continue to evolve our range of Cyborg branded products by incorporating new technologies that enhance the gaming experience.”
We are excited to be working closely with amBX and publishers to bring our new range of Cyborg amBX-compatible products to the PC gaming community. We believe the new range is well positioned to demonstrate the benefits that this emerging technology has to offer,” concluded the company's CEO.
