CES 2018 sees the launch of a new mouse from gaming peripheral maker SteelSeries-- the Rival 600, the first from the company to feature dual optical sensors to track movement even when the mouse is in the air.

SteelSeries Rival 600The mouse uses TrueMove3+, a system combining a TrueMove3 primary sensor and a second PixArt optical sensor to track lift-off distance. SteelSeries claims the dual sensors eliminate jitter and cursor disparity on lift-off movements, while the lift-off distance is the lowest in the market.

“We took a massive leap forward in sensor innovation with Pixart with the TrueMove3 sensor in the Rival 310 and Sensei 310," the company says. "Now we’re taking that innovation even further by combining the true 1-to-1 tracking of the TrueMove3 with a second optical sensor for precision. It’s the only dual optical sensor system in the world that can offer this level of precision and accuracy of movement.”

Nintendo remains on a quirky streak as it announces Labo-- a range of "experiences designed to inspire creative minds and playful hearts alike" customers build out of cardboard.

Nintendo LaboAs seen in the announcement video, Labo sets consists of sheets of perforated cardboard. Customers pop out the different shapes and fold them according to on-screen instructions to create objects such as a piano, fishing rod, bike or even a robot suit. Nintendo calls these results "Toy-Cons," and they spring to life when the users slot the Switch controllers or tablet into place.

Thus the cardboard piano becomes a playable instrument, with the IR sensor in the right Joy-Con detecting which key is being pressed before the console plays it through the built-in speakers. Other Toy-Cons use the combination of controller and console to create drivable motorbikes, fishing games and what looks like an interactive house.
