ROCCAT Apuri Gives You Extra USB Ports, Holds Your Mouse Cable

Roccat-Apuri

By Chris Scott Barr

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.

    I actually have conduit running to my mouse. Now if I could figure out a way to make it move I'd be all set.

    I don't have an issue with the cord, but I can see how this can be useful. Eventually everything will be wireless and eat the hell out of batteries and no one will care how “un”green it is. Oh well. *rocks out on her corded Guitar Hero guitar*

    I'm a little strapped for space on my desk for this monstrous thing. It's great to tidy up cords but I think mice of the future will be wireless, and the mousepad will be wired and power the mouse through induction. I don't know if that is possible, but it would be an interesting mouse.
