Thermaltake Level 10 M Gaming Mouse Review

Thermaltake caused quite a splash when they first introduced their Level 10 line, which is a collaboration with BMW Group DesignworksUSA, by taking a more artistic and imaginative approach to something that had begun to grow a bit stale, the computer case.  Since then, Thermaltake has released a smaller and more affordable Level 10 GT case, and now it comes to another form factor that it looks to transform.  The Level 10 M blends elements from car design with functional ergonomics and a gamer-centric aesthetic that has once again resulted in a one-of-a-kind product that people everywhere take notice of.  Let's dive right in and see if this is the... dare I say it... ultimate mousing machine?

 

Overview


 

Thermaltake Level 10 M Gaming Mouse

The Level 10 concept allows gamers to experience the power of their high-end computers through the design itself. In order to achieve this, iconic design is combined with optimum functionality and innovative details.
The inspiration for this approach the design team took right from the computer worlds themselves – expressiveness, virtual townscapes and futuristic game components served as orientation for the arrangement and the display of individuality. These appear within the overall design in the form of an open modular and configurable structure that visually appeals to users, offering them additional functional as well as pleasurable benefits.

 

For the Level 10 project Thermaltake wanted a design partner which stands for innovative thinking and revolutionary approaches in design. Right from the beginning therefore, DesignworksUSA has been the design partner for the Level 10 project. The global design consultancy has skillfully extended the Level 10 design concept and translated it to a vital gaming accessory: the Level 10 M Mouse.
Working in various industries, the design team is able to transfer visions and inspiration between many projects and has successfully demonstrated this ability in the latest Tt eSPORTS product design. With the Level 10 M Mouse Thermaltake presents a product which was inspired by the leading future thinkers. The collaboration between Thermaltake Group and BMW Group subsidiary DesignworksUSA will be continued and with an extended e-Sports product range it will keep its focus on serving the high demands of our customers.
