Ross's Crazy Mouse Design

Recommended Posts

Quote

If it had a modular design like the Roccat Nyth, I would probably go for it.

Obvious question: It looks like you can change out the buttons for bigger ones at the expense of space, of course. So why don't you buy the Roccat Nyth?

The customizable thumb pad for that seems really nice but it's sadly been discontinued and is out of stock everywhere I've looked.

 

Here's another interesting one: ML160 "Commander" Infrared Mouse.

One reviewer said it's a big mouse so might be good for big hands. Not as great as the Swiftpoint Z but for only $33 USD it might be a good cheap alternative.

 

Swiftpoint Z is actually now only $99 USD on Amazon.com and my left mouse button just stopped working on me so I'm really tempted to pick one up.

This looks like it hits a lot of marks. Not sure of your hand position and whether or not the "grip"/button position would mess with you. It is wireless but it's the same weight as my Logitech M325 and that's considerably light IMO.

So I found that exact same design under a different brand for only $13 instead of $73! So I'm not sure if LERSYCO is just a cheap knockoff or if EVESKY is trying to rip people off.

Okay here's a bizarre one: the AULA S10 ergonomic mouse (Amazon, Newegg, Newegg)

The shape reminds me of "The Claw" Ross mentioned once so maybe this is a design he would like? This also seems to hit most of his requirements except for being kind of glossily, but it does have a sort of smooth space age look to it. I'd almost be willing to get it for $30 but shipping is $20 or $64 with free shipping.

The OOMouse/OpenOfficeMouse/Warmouse Meta is probably the closest thing to Ross' dream mouse and was created way back in 2009 but like all mice of this type, it was short-lived and almost impossible to find now.

As ugly as this is I kind of like the placement of some of the buttons. Plus I like that thumbwheel. Out of all the ones in this thread this is the one I'm most interested in trying.

What the hell is that? Jesus H Christ that looks like a nightmare to use and I even have narrow fingers. I definitely disagree with Steve Jobs and think that a mouse should have as many buttons as possible but this ain't it chief.

i think these mouse designs are all terrible and i think what the guy truly wants is, a custom, hand made mouse, for his own hand specifically, so if someone can get a mold of his hand, then you can make whatever the hell mouse you want based off that shape

 

personally i would struggle to use all 5 fingers though, i think it would hurt after a while, i always keep my other 3 fingers on the right side, just tucked away,  i always used my second finger for the left click \ middle click and my third finger for right clicks, but i've never been able to left click and middle click without hurting myself, personally i would need a VERY big mouse or at least i would move the scroll wheel on the side maybe, but i never use my last 2 fingers, so i'd either use 2 max at all times, since the rest of my fingers are usually just, hanging around doing nothing

 

anyway i think a custom mold is the only real solution, and then, once you have the plastic printed, you can ghetto it with an existing mouse, and boom, you have your ultra ergonomic, custom made, 3d printed mouse

 

@Ross Scott get some guy with a 3D printer to get a mold of your hand, the mouse you want to purchase will probably never ever exist so you have better odds of someone else making a custom shell for u, and then you can just, take the guts from another mouse and slap them togheter

That was one of Ross' ideas in his birthday video and probably the only real solution. The @ThePhunMaster even developed a prototype for Ross over in the Birthday thread: Mouse topic, but it doesn't seem like anything came of it.

Jeff Dunham, the ventriloquist guy, had a behind-the-scenes video where he was showing how he made his puppets, and in one of the videos he demonstrates this device that scans 3d objects; he used it to scan his hand to make the hand for his puppet(s)

It's called photoscanning, and you actually don't need a special device for it anymore, just a camera and some software.
