The house also includes a precision aim mode which allows gamers to hold down a button and temporarily slow down
cursor movement, steadying the aim. The mouse's five programmable buttons combined with a 3 position mode switch allows for a total of up to 15 user definable commands to be available to the gamer at any one time. Cyborg Smart Technology software included in pack allows gamers to remap programmable buttons and create custom macros. The R.A.T. 9 is compatible with Windows 7, Vista and XP and sells for $129.99, £119.99, €129.99.

Mad Catz is also showing off their new G.L.I.D.E. mouse pad at this week's show.

The G.L.I.D.E. 7 is 19.7" by 15.7" and made of "a low-friction synthetic fabric ensuring smooth and
accurate mouse control at all times."

I get the desire for friction-free gaming, but how do you come out with seven iterations of a mouse pad?
