Razer just announced the Razer Viper Mini Signature Edition, the epitome of gaming mouse technology. The result of years of craftsmanship and engineering, the Viper Mini Signature Edition is an ultra-lightweight, high-performance wireless gaming mouse with Razer’s industry-leading technologies.
Designed for gamers with the highest demands, the Viper Mini Signature Edition takes gaming mouse performance to a new level. Weighing in at an astounding 49 grams, gamers experience pure perfection with a gaming peripheral that combines top-notch technologies with a perfect form.
Extremely lightweight at only 49 g
“We set out to create the best lightweight performance gaming mouse. We went beyond our usual design process and explored material choices and alternative industrial designs to use magnesium alloy to create an extremely durable exoskeleton chassis in the fan-favorite Viper Mini shape. The Viper Mini Signature Edition weighs just 49 grams and doesn’t compromise, making it our lightest mouse ever.”
Barrie Ooi, Head of Razers PC Gaming Division
The use of magnesium alloy and injection molding techniques allows for a significant weight reduction of the mouse without sacrificing durability while providing a comfortable grip in the popular Viper Mini design. These choices allow the Viper Mini Signature Edition to remain ultra-light at just 49 grams while delivering excellent performance.
Magnesium alloy exoskeleton
Constructed of high-quality magnesium alloy, the Viper Mini Signature Edition boasts an exceptional weight-to-strength ratio, thanks to a new, complex, extremely durable design created using an injection molding technique.
“The Viper Mini Signature Edition represents our most ambitious design and engineering project. We wanted to go beyond traditional honeycomb design, and to do so required a material with an optimal strength-to-weight ratio. After evaluating plastics, carbon fiber and even titanium, we decided we finally chose a magnesium alloy because of its exceptional properties.”
Charlie Bolton, Head of Industrial Design bei Razer
Each example of the Viper Mini Signature Edition is made with an injection molded exoskeleton that is CNC machined and polished. The exoskeleton shell is then passivated to reduce susceptibility to corrosion, after which it is painted and assembled. At every step, each specimen is carefully inspected to ensure the highest quality.
