Logitech G Aurora Collection

Today Logitech presented its new Aurora Collection. It is a new series of gaming products that includes the G735 headphones, the G715 wireless keyboard, the G713 keyboard, the G705 wireless mouse and eight customization accessories. This new collection has been designed to be gender inclusive, and not gender exclusive, and addresses the needs and desires of gamers, but also players who are always looking for a lively design and an experience with attention to every detail.

“Much of the video game industry has stuck to the idea of ​​'one-size-fits-all'. But that doesn't reflect the wide range of consumers who focus on personal expression and play for fun, and it certainly didn't fit Logitech's commitment to providing solutions for all gamers. When we analyzed our gaming products, we realized that we could have done more and with Aurora Collection we have created a gender inclusive collection, focused on comfort, accessibility and liveliness, which supports our long-term commitment. to allow everyone to experience the joy of gaming, ”said Ujesh Desai, Vice President and General Manager of Logitech G.| ); }
The design process was guided by the following three principles:

Comfort: in the design phase, the team made sure to take into account aspects such as longer hair, glasses, earrings and smaller hands, without stopping only at ergonomics. Accessibility: To better embrace the opportunities associated with accessibility, the team has abandoned the typical sharp edges, black colors and boisterous aesthetics to create a more welcoming experience, characterized by soft tones, translucent materials and relaxing lighting outside the box. Playfulness: the Aurora Collection encourages self-expression. The products are available in the basic White Mist color with the possibility of customizing them using the Pink Dawn and Green Flash accessories. Gamers can also show their creative side with thousands of customizable lighting combinations available in G HUB with Aurora Collection lighting called Play Moods.

It also includes Logitech G's advanced gaming grade technologies like LIGHTSPEED high-performance wireless technology and Blue VO!CE microphone technology. The result is a collection of gear that invites all gamers to come as they are, while delivering the advanced feature set all gamers expect.

'Much of the gaming industry has been stuck in a one-size-fits-all mentality. But that hasn't reflected the wide range of consumers who are focused on self-expression and playing games for fun, and it certainly didn't fit Logitech's commitment to delivering solutions for all gamers. When we looked at our own gaming products, we realized we could be doing more,' said Ujesh Desai, Vice President and General Manager of Logitech G. 'With the Aurora Collection we've created a gender-inclusive collection centered around comfort, approachability and playfulness that supports our long-term commitment to enabling  everyone to experience the joy of play.'

The Aurora Collection was conceptualized based on the feedback from women gamers across the community and brought to life by a team of predominantly women innovation, design, engineering and marketing leaders at Logitech. The collection was created to meet the gaming desires and needs of an underrepresented segment of gamers and reimagine the future of gaming where representation is firmly present. And the design process was guided by the following three principles:

Story continues

  • Comfort: In the design phase, the team made sure to take things into account like longer hair, glasses, earrings, and smaller hand sizes. Not stopping at fit. The team prioritized products that felt and looked good to support longer play sessions, exploring different materials and finishes that were lightweight and soft to the touch.

  • Approachability: To address areas of opportunity around approachability the team broke away from the typical sharp edges, black colorways and loud aesthetics to create a more welcome experience featuring softer tonalities, translucent materials and soothing out-of-box lighting.

  • Playfulness:  The Aurora Collection encourages self-expression. The products come in base White Mist with the ability to customize using Pink Dawn and Green Flash accessories. Players can also show off their creative side with thousands of customizable lighting combinations available in G HUB with Aurora Collection signature lighting that we call Play Moods.

  • 'Our endeavor, to craft a gender-inclusive collection of gaming gear, challenged us to set aside old ideas—and really ask ourselves some essential questions about our own love of play,' said TIffany Beers, Head of Gaming Innovation at Logitech G. 'In setting out to design principally for women gamers, we achieved not only that but created a collection we hope is meaningful for an even larger segment of gamers beyond gender and stereotypes. We're excited for the Aurora collection and what it represents.'

    The Aurora Collection consists of:
