To be unveiled at the 2012 CES, the company announced today that they will show off their Isku Illuminated Gaming Keyboard and Kone[+] Max Customization Gaming Mouse at CES. Another technology they plan to show off is the ROCCAT Talk, which allows compatible devices to :talk”: to one another making it easier to execute commands while playing.
