“Most Advanced Gaming Mouse” Smashes Kickstarter Goal
Ashley Allen / 4 years ago
A new gaming mouse, billed as the “most advanced” ever made, has nearly doubled its Kickstarter goal with 31 days remaining. Swiftpoint’s gaming mouse, dubbed The Z, has exceeded its $140,000 goal, raising $233,019 in the space of two weeks.
The Z allows gamers to tilt, pivot, and roll with only slight movements of their hand, and contains an accelerometer, a gyroscope, a force sensor, and tactile feedback.
Swiftpoint’s mouse has also managed to squeeze in 50 clickable buttons into its compact frame. As Swiftpoint puts it on the Kickstarter page:
“Many mice pack in additional buttons around the thumb grip and all over the device. We’ve figured out a new way of clicking that means you can have more buttons, that are effortless to click with no finger or thumb contortions required.
The Z has a new type of trigger button. It can be used by simply straightening your finger slightly and then clicking – while still gripping the mouse as normal, with your fingers poised on the main left and right click buttons.
They are so easy to click that you can use them for actions you do frequently, like reloading, jumping or crouching.
You can pull them like a trigger as well. These two buttons are in effect four buttons.
We’ve also added adjustable fingertip buttons, that can be accessed with very little finger movement.
Combine pivot and tilt with trigger and fingertip buttons, to effortlessly access over 50 different actions (48 plus left and right click) – all while maintaining a full grip for maximum control on the mouse.”
The standard pledge to get yourself The Z is $169, but there are still a few cheaper early bird specials available, if you’re quick.
