It has an integrated OLED monochrome display to clearly show how far along in the recharging cycle a power pack is. It also shows the current DPI setting of the Uranium and its current wireless frequency. You can even customize the macros, as this is where the onboard memory for the Uranium is stored. By offloading as much as they could from the mouse to the station, Gigabyte’s claim of 70 hours of wireless use does seem much more plausible.

Oh, the things people come up with in the name of fun. Tetris was probably the most overplayed game on my old NES Famicom, so to see it resurrected and playable on an actual pumpkin is, well, kind of awesome.
But this is no ordinary pumpkin. Dubbed by its makers as the ‘Pumpktris’, this pumpkin has been embedded with over 128 LEDS and a board on the inside, which is basically the ‘brains’ of the game. The pumpkin’s stem serves as the joystick which lets you control where you want your Tetris pieces to be positioned. It’s good fun and definitely adds a spooky theme to a classic game.
Too bad it’s game over for good care of Mother Nature in a couple of days (or weeks, tops.) Hit the break for a video of some Pumpktris being played.

I’ve gone through dozens of gaming keyboards during my decades of PC gaming, from generic off-white Wal-Mart specials to elaborate, fully-programmable, back-lit monstrosities. The Cyborg S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 from Mad Catz is the first gaming keyboard I’ve had to screw together before using. Gizmodo Australia
