Razer’s new mouse mat is so big and glassy the company is warning customers to avoid using it as a weapon or to start fires.
On Thursday, the PC vendor launched the Razer Atlas(Opens in a new window), a $99 mouse mat that’s made out of tempered glass. The product is both sleek and large, measuring in at 17 inches by 15 inches while featuring a thickness at 0.19 inches.
Although the Razer Atlas is designed to sit on a desk, the company is also cautioning customers from using the mouse mat for potentially malicious purposes. An image on the website for the Razer Atlas advises owners to avoid using the mouse mat as a giant magnifying glass to start fires or to bash someone’s head with.
A separate image also warns customers to avoid using the mouse mat as a reflective surface to receive a tan from the sun.
The warning may have been added as a joke, but it could serve as a helpful disclaimer if Razer ever faces lawsuits over the Atlas being used in hazardous ways.
The product represents Razer’s first-ever glass mouse mat. To stand out, the company tempered the glass “for maximum tensile strength and impact resistance.” So some users may be curious enough to test the product’s durability.
Razer added: “Protected by a unique coating, the surface remains flawless even after extended periods of use, while any smudges and grime can be cleaned off with a quick wipe down.”
