In another of ASUS’ Computex announcements, they have shared the impending release of their ROG Balteus Qi RGB mouse pad. The mouse pad combines a surface for the mouse to track clean as well as the ability to use Qi wireless charging on the desktop. The 370 x 320mm surface is portrait oriented and offers space for concurrent charging and gaming as well as RGB lighting for additional flare. 

The ROG Balteus Qi features 15 RGB LED lighting zones that are fully customizable using their Aura Sync RGB software. The mouse pad also has on-pad lighting mode button for on the fly adjustments and a USB 2.0 pass-through port. Additionally, a ROG Balteus (non-Qi) will also be available for those who would like the RGB mousepad but do not want/need the Qi charging capabilities (and likely a lower price tag).

Availability of the Balteus Qi is 2H 2018. Pricing was not listed.

    Is there a Qi-enabled wireless mouse I've missed or do they intend for you to get your cell phone in the way of your mouse while you're charging your phone? This is kind of bizarre.
