When wireless mice came out, everyone was dreaming of an unwired PC. Eventually the only cord going to our computers would be for power, right? All-in-one computers and laptops can actually get away with only a power cord, but most desktop users still have half a dozen cables connected. Heck, as a gamer even my mouse is still corded, which for some people can be a nuisance. That cord can easily get caught on something, ruining that perfect shot. If you refuse to switch to a wireless setup, then here’s a device that can get that cord out of the way.
The ROCCAT Apuri is actually a USB hub that has an extra function. It features an arm that holds your mouse cord up so that it won’t catch or drag on anything. I could see this sitting on top of someone’s desk, especially since it isn’t too hard on the eyes. For those with keyboard trays, you might not find it to be as useful. Of course, the $60 price will likely be enough to make most people think twice about it.
