The Kickstarter for Lexip's 3D mouse launched Jan. 29 and it had reached its goal of $31,000 within three hours.
By Feb 1, the Kickstarter has raised more than $110,000 in pledges. And it still has more than a month to go.
Lexip will be available on Kickstarter for right-handed and left-handed users. Early backers can pre-order Lexip for a 33% discount at $100. The future retail value will be $149. The campaign has a goal of $25,000. Shipping and delivery is estimated for June 2018.
Lexip touts the mouse as versatile and designed for users working in 3D environment games.
It is unique because it combines two joysticks, a mini thumb joystick and the joystick on the upper shell of the mouse for six degrees of freedom.
Lexip's glide is performed with an ADNS-9800 laser sensor and provides a two-dimensional glide with 8200 dots per inch (DPI) with a speed/acc: 150ips/30g. The mouse includes two accelerometers, one which is assembled with the top shell and the other on the bottom circuit board. The length of Lexip is 120 mm with a width of 72mm and is 43mm in height. Lexip weighs 150g.
The internal mechanical two-axis tilt on the upper shell gives gamers and designers a mouse that tilts +/- 30 degrees in all directions. The rotation plane is horizontal: left, right, forward, backward and intended to be used with the palm. The tilting shell is composed of a silent block linking Lexip's top and bottom shells, which allows the bottom shell to remain stationary. The accelerometers register 550 individual points over the +/- 30 degrees tilt and are capable of inputting over 300,000 different joystick position values.
