Does anyone have one of these? What do you think of it? I'm always up for a mouse with more buttons :)

I've never heard of this but watch the Tutorial (http://www.sandiotech.com/product.php?type=video) video. It's kind of interesting. Can't say it's something I'm interested in, but it's a neat idea.

I think a gamepad would be more useful. I used to have a device that you wore as a ring, it was pretty small, but it had 3 sensors that were attached to the monitor and the little wireless thing was a 3d mouse. It was pretty cool, bought it like 10 years ago, wonder why it never went big:lol:

Neat. Have a SS of it at all? Yeah, a controller does give a lot of functions, but you don't get the precision of a mouse. This seems like a strange hybrid, plus the one-handedness of it might be good... perhaps when I'm 90 and still gaming after my third stroke I can use this mouse :D

I'm just wondering about that freakin' attachment around the bottom. What the hecks is that used for and more importantly does it come off :headexplode:

I think it's just for stabilizing the mouse movements, because one's wrists usually drags along the mouse pad when moving the mouse, causing the mouse movements to become more inexact. :) And when working in say 3d max my "mouse hand" often gets a bit sticky and sweaty, and that makes precise movements with the mouse pretty difficult.

Thats pretty stupid, the wrist contact is the only thing that make movements precise, just try playing an CS:S or something with your hand only touching the mouse, I find it impossible.

Actually not touching the pad can make very fast precise movements much easier and smoother (and more accurate if you have a steady arm). A lot of people do it that way (Fatal1ty comes to mind). If you need some "grip" in a hurry for something you drag your pinky.

I'm surprised by that, I have quite a small mouse and move it around almost entirely with my fingers with my wrist still, I find it fast and very precise....

I liked some ideas in the tutoring video.
But unfortunately bad execution on the mouse itself.
