Razer and Belkin Team Up for Nostromo Gaming Keypad

by Shane McGlaun

Razer and Belkin have teamed up to resurrect a gaming icon from days gone by. The two companies have unveiled an updated version of the Nostromo gaming keypad. I had one of those things years ago and it was a good way to shed the keyboard and have less space taken up on your desk. The Nostromo is a keypad with a D-pad on the thumb area and 16 programmable buttons.

You can map those buttons to anything you want. The thumb D-Pad can be mapped to directional controls if you want or can be used as a modifier to increase the number of commands that can be bound to the keypad.

The key mapping can be changed on the fly and programming software for the Nostromo is included with the device. The shape of the Nostromo is ergonomic for comfort with extended gaming sessions and the macros that can be bound to the keypad can have an unlimited number of characters. The new Nostromo will ship on 11/29 for $69.99 (USD), and you can order one over at the Razer website.

    What is the difference to the old version? It cannot see any changes. Maybe it’s just me. ;)

    Ah, sorry. On the website they have a FAQ. It’s all about macros and instantly switching between keymaps. Again: Sorry!
