SteelSeries Rival 500 mouse promises gaming ecstasy for your thumb

The general shape of the computer mouse hasn’t changed all that much over the years. Subjectively some gaming models are definitely more comfortable to use than others, though there’s no one-size-fits-all mouse that everyone agrees is the bees-knees. In the absence of such a design, SteelSeries decided to build a new rodent from the ground up around the gamer’s thumb and hand movements. Meet the Rival 500.

“The Rival 500 is the first true multi-button gaming mouse engineered to maximize gaming efficiency, while keeping the gamers movement and comfort in mind,” said Ehtisham Rabbani, SteelSeries CEO. “We created a MOBA/MMO mouse that fits your hand and not the other way around.”

SteelSeries said it reimagined the traditional multi-button grid layout of most mice by incorporating natural hand movement into the design of the Rival 500. More specifically, it replaced the squeezed buttons of a grid format with what it calls a “Next-Gen” side button layout that’s supposed to make identifying, clicking, and combo clicking precise and easy.
