Logitech launches ID Grip
Logitech on Friday announced the availability of its new ID Grip for the company's G9 Laser Mouse meant for gamers. The ID Grip can be customized by buyers via a custom printing process. Logitech offers a choice of artwork it created in-house, or designs from various video games. Buyers can also create and send in their own images or photos that Logitech will then transfer onto the palm grip for the G9 mouse. The printing process ensures the image is resistant to rubbing off, as the image is printed into the surface of the grip and not simply on top of it.
The ID Grip is Logitech's latest attempt to give gamers all the customizability they want, the company says. The ID Grip attaches quickly and easily, with its operation overseen by a single button. It features more palm and wrist support than the naked G9 mouse and has a soft-touch side grip. The G9 laser mouse already allows tuning, including changing its weight, grips and changing the color of its LEDs.
The ID Grip is now available in the US, priced at nearly $20.
