Tesoro announces Thyrsus mouse with six thumb buttons

Gaming peripherals company Tesoro has announced its newest mouse, the Thyrsus. It packs six thumb buttons, and it's targeted mainly at MOBA and MMO players.

All those buttons can be programmed with macros, and each one has an Omron microswitch lying underneath that's claimed to be good for 10 million clicks. The optical sensor is specced for a sensitivity of 8200 DPI, but there's no word on the model or maker. However, Tesoro claims it can keep tracking at speeds up to 150 inches per second, and acceleration up to 30 gs. Much to the relief of those with sweaty palms, the Thyrsus features a soft-touch surface with rubber on both sides.

Gamers can customize the mouse's six on-the-fly DPI settings, as well as the LED lighting. Tweaks can be saved in five profiles with the Thyrsus' 64KB onboard memory. Oh, and if anyone's wondering, Thyrsus was the staff of the greek god Dionysus.

Tesoro says the mouse will be availabe in August, at a retail price of $69.
