Mouse bungees may not be the most popular gaming accessories around, but we're sure there's at some dedicated gamers reading this that wouldn't think of using a corded mouse without one, and Razer is now hoping to increase that user base with a mouse bungee of its own. Developed in partnership with Mouse Bungee -- the company itself -- the contraption simply promises to keep your mouse's cord off your desk and not impede on your freedom of movement in any way thanks to suitably springy suspension mechanism and a sturdy, non-slip base. No word on pricing just yet, but you can look for it to be available sometime in the fourth quarter of this year. Full press release is after the break.
