Keyboards have come a long way. From basic command inputs and programming to fast paced gaming, keyboards are a necessity in todays daily computing. There are basic 102 key keyboards that satisfy most people, but there are also the advid gamers who need something catered to their lifestyle. Here is where the Flexiglow Cyber Snipa gamepad comes to play.

What Flexiglow has done is taken the most important keys on a keyboard to a gamer and placed them onto a smaller gamepad. Equipped with it's own wrist rest, it just might be the wrist and finger saving piece of equipment many gamers have been looking for.

Here are some features:

  • Designed to improve game control, speed and accuracy
  • No learning curve for experienced FPS gamers
  • USB device that will operate alongside your keyboard
  • Ergonomically designed navigation and function keys
  • Optimally engineered tactile key feedback
  • Can be used with any FPS game that allows programmable key mappings
  • Built in volume control
  • Removable non-slip palm wrest
  • 1.8m (6ft) USB power cord
  • US and other patents pending
  • Dimensions: 235mm x 153mm x 24mm (LxWxD)

The wrist rest is not particularly thick. The foam is actually rather thin to the touch. I can imagine initially this would suffice, but over time this might be worn down.

The beauty of this gamepad is that there are no drivers to install nor do you need to edit your buttons through another piece of software. Just plug the gamepad into a USB port and map your keys in your game. If you already have them mapped onto your main keyboard, the Cyber Snipa gamepad will inherit your settings. This makes it extremely easy to setup.

The main keys are the QWE and ASD, colored blue in the image above. Flexiglow has spent a bit of time gathering information on what gamers wanted. The keys are spaced apart quite nicely. My only real quirk is that the placement of the Alt and N buttons. They are a bit awkward to press during the heat of battle.
