The Astrum, Ninox's third mouse, is the lightest fully modular computer mouse in the world, coming in at under 80 grams. With 13 different ways to configure the shape of the mouse, along with the highest quality materials and components available, it's designed to deliver the best possible levels of comfort and performance. The Astrum has also been designed for extremely high levels of adjustability and customisation, from the hardware, through to the software.
Ninox Astrum Fully Modular Mouse Is Crowdfunding And Will Start On Friday
Choose from 3 main shapes, with the choice of where you'd like the side buttons - on both sides, none at all, or the left, or right, all included in the box. Unique features of the Astrum's shell include an adjustable sensor position, and 3D CAD templates which you can use to create your own attachments via 3D printing, or simply download and print community made designs!
The hardware inside the Astrum packs a punch, too, with infrared optical microswitches, rated at 90 million clicks, and an optical scroll wheel encoder, rated at 50 million scrolls. The optical microswitches are also extremely fast, requiring far less error checking delay than their mechanical counterparts. The Astrum also uses a top of the line sensor, the Pixart PMW-3360, which is capable of 12,000 DPI, and a max tracking speed of over 6.5 meters per second.
Changing basic settings on the Astrum can be done without software, simply use button combinations to change settings, such as your DPI and LED colour. However, fully featured software is also available, with much finer control over settings, including key binds, macros, profiles, LED control, and advanced sensor options. The software is compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux.
The Astrum was designed in England, by Ninox, and is a crowd funded project. If you like the sound of the mouse, please take a look at the pre-launch page, and if you don't want to miss out on the launch deals, make sure to sign up! There will also be five special colours available, exclusive to backers. Those that want to check on the project can find their kickstarter page here
