Oh, that’s just setting up your phone to be swiped from the desk…


#3

Or have beer spilled on it.

“Gaming mousepad” made by non-gamers for we’re not sure who.


#5

(From back when optical mice were novel and needed special reflective metal mouse pads with tiny dots for tracking)


#6

What’s next, a gaming keyboard with a Kindle Stand in the middle so you can read and play games at the same time?


#7

cat-fuck-this-fuck-that


#8

this could be kinda useful if you also had a wireless mouse which charges over Qi. I wonder if such a thing exists?


#9

It’s like whoever designed it has never used a mouse or seen one being used, especially by someone playing a game.

That, or the people that are stuck designing these low-tier “gamer” products are just seeing what they can get away with. Remember “gamer” energy drinks and “gamer” snacks?

I’m practicing my flick-aim. Hold on while I pick up my mouse to re-center it.


#11

I prefer throwing it away and just using the surface of your desk instead. Like, literally nothing, (as in; not having the thing) can improve a mouse pad.


#12

Qi charging for wireless mice make so much sense yet very few companies have done it, but there are some examples.


#13

You might not think much could be done to improve the humble mouse pad…

Correct.
