Product information: ZM-FG1000 FPS Gaming MouseThe first thing you will notice is the very unusual and unique shape of the mouse. It may look unnatural but holding the mouse in this way is ergonomically better than a standard mouse. It has been designed this way to aid gamers in FPS (First Person Shooters) games. It does this in many ways...
The reason the FPSGUN is designed like a upside-down gun is because it places your hand in a more natural position. The grip is moulded to fit the palm of your hand, making the FPSGUN very comfortable to hold. This design will aid to reduce RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury), which is ideal if you play FPS games regularly. There is only one downside to this design, unfortunately if you are left-handed then this mouse would not be suitable.
The layout of the mouse buttons are extremely important for this type of design. They need to be easily accessible, just like a standard mouse. The right and left click mouse buttons are located where you would normally expect the trigger for a real gun to be. The same fingers are used for right and left clicking as a standard mouse. As you grip the FPSGUN your thumb will be able to access the scroll wheel along with two additional mouse buttons. For ease of use all mouse buttons are customisable.
A standard mouse has the optical sensor located on the base of the mouse directly underneath the users palm, the FPSGUN is totally different. When looking left or right in game the users wrist acts as a pivot, unlike a standard mouse. The reason for this is that the optical sensor on the FPSGUN is located further down the mouse allowing for quick on screen movements with less psychical movement of the mouse. The diagrams below should help clarify things a little better.
The FPSGUN is able to change the sensitivity of the mouse by a touch of a button. There are three different settings available. The default settings are 400, 800 and 1600 DPI, of course each of these settings can be customised using the supplied software. The scroll wheel changes colour depends on the chosen setting.
