Sometimes when I see announcements and news in games I do have to check the date. I have to double-check it's not April 1 and I'm not being made a fool of for believing that developers or brands are making things that look, in a word, bonkers.
But Razer, this time, seems to be genuinely offering something more than a little bizarre.
Kotaku has noticed a new product on the Razer website, the "Razer Gaming Finger Sleeve". These $9.99 finger gloves are small fabric pieces designed to sit snugly on your digits and help you be the best gamer you can be. And by that I mean it's for gamers who are serious about mobile gaming and don't want their fingers to slip around their screen. Which makes sense, to be fair.
Although these things look ridiculous, if you're someone who uses your phone as your primary source of gaming, I can see why you'd want the surface of your screen to be less slippery. We've all had that moment where our mouse or our controller gets a little sweaty in high-intensity competitive moments (reminder to clean your gaming peripherals, by the way) so mobile gaming is likely the same. Sometimes you might need a little help to clutch a round.
On the Razer website the finder sleeves have such features as "smooth, high-sensitivity fabric", "lightweight and breathable" and don't worry about sizing because they've got "wide compatibility and universal fit". And honestly, for about ten bucks, I can imagine many mobile games at least wanting to see if they really do improve gameplay.
Razer loves to experiment with concepts here and there, to their credit. It wasn't long ago when it revealed Project Hazel, which could in fact be the future of masks if we continue to live in a very virus-concerned environment going forward.
