Power up

The 400 DPI twin-eye laser sensor runs off of two AAA batteries that slide in the bottom. Also, it uses Bluetooth 4.0, which promises better low-power performance. Mad Catz says that the R.A.T can run for as long as a year on the same set of batteries.

Coming apart

Designed to be modular, it comes apart in several places to be as functional or as minimal as needed. You can remove the wrist rests, for example, or you can take off the right portion when you just need a portable solution. The various pieces connect with Micro-USB cables.
