Razer Releases Finger Sleeves for Mobile Gaming

Razer has long been known as one of the best gaming brands around. There isn’t a single person who has ever touched a controller, keyboard, or mobile device that hasn’t at some time wished they could have the newest Razer product. That sleek black with a green that almost glows was the true mark of a professional or serious gamer. Even now, as video games become more popular than ever, Razer is one of the OG faces of the gaming scene.

But even they have a miss every now and then.

Introducing the newest product for the hardcore mobile gamer but Razer…the Finger Sleeves. I can’t even type it with a straight face. They’re basically thimbles for gaming, they’ve been called ‘finger condoms’ on social media. You’ve heard of fingerless gloves, these are gloveless fingers…for your thumb and index finger.

Woven with high-sensitivity silver fiber for enhanced aim & control, our breathable sleeves keep your fingers deadly cool in the heat of battle, so you’ll always have a grip on the game. https://t.co/mxXSQ3EDtE pic.twitter.com/pypXRMvc9N / Twitter”

Joking aside, the reasoning behind their function is based in reality. Some people game hard, even when it comes to mobile gaming. It’s not uncommon to have sweaty hands, or palms and while most gamers aren’t going hardcore with their mobile games it can screw up your play.

These Razer Gaming Finger Sleeve’s, as is the official name, are made of a conductive silver fiber, which allows touch screens to pick up on finger movement. The sleeves are made of nylon and spandex which allows them to fit any finger type or size. They’ll run you $10 a pair and all your friends and the lady on the bus or subway will make fun of you.

But in the end, if it’s improving your game, maybe it’s worth the embarrassment?
