Roccat moves ahead with development of Sova, lapboard for living-room gaming

Roccat Studios will continue development on the Sova, the company's modular board to enable keyboard-and-mouse gaming in the living room, and chronicle the process on its blog, the peripheral manufacturer announced today.

Hamburg, Germany-based Roccat brought a prototype of the Sova to E3 2014 last month in order to get feedback about the device. According to the Sova website, the lapboard debuted to a 96 percent positive reception, which gave Roccat the support it was looking for.

"We are thrilled with the overwhelmingly positive response we have received for the Sova," said René Korte, CEO and founder of Roccat, in a press release today. "We're ready to go full speed into our refinement process, and want our fans to see the hard work that goes into moving a Roccat product from its development phase, into what you see at retail."

Roccat will give people an inside look at the Sova's progress, and continue to solicit feedback, on the product's development blog. The company has yet to provide a release window or price for the Sova, which will support Android, Linux/SteamOS and Windows PC at launch. You can see a message from Korte below.
