You've got a great gaming keyboard, and now you need a great mouse to go with it? Well the Swedish company MIONIX thinks they might have the solution for you. We've reviewed their NAOS 5000 and NAOS 3200 units in the past and were reasonably pleased with their performance. And now they've just announced their new NAOS 7000 high performance optical gaming mouse. MIONIX even made a nice little demo video for you.
Billed as a truly ergonomic, right-handed gaming mouse, it looks like it follows the same form factor as many other gaming grade rodents. That means that it has a full palm grip with a high point near the middle of the mouse for optimal control.
The hardware used within this mouse is littered with just as many interesting specs. This includes a 7000 dpi sensor with no hardware acceleration, to ensure any movement is smooth like butter. The NAOS 7000 even has a built in ARM processor with supporting software, allowing you to customize every button, movement aspect, and even allows you to change the LED colour.
The price for this mouse is suggested to be $79.99 US and it should be available this month at the usual places. More details are in the full press release below.
