    I am picturing using the thumb stick to move camera in Age of Empires or Dota or whatever. That'd be a marvelous thing, but not worth putting this much £ into.

    Seen stuff like this before, it's not the first and won't revolutionise anything... especially as I can't even buy one yet.
    Plus, it doesn't have enough buttons!!

    I read it as two integrated chopsticks,and thought this would be useful if I ever want to game and eat some Chinese. Then I re-read the description again.

    It has a joystick on it... it's instantly 10x less useful than giving me buttons for my thumb. Precision? Someone has never used a joystick. There's nothing precision about them.

    They keep trying stuff like this, but the engineers don't seem to realize that all that movement in the device you're trying to do renders any kind of precise movement on any of those axes virtually impossible...

    Re: Lexip gaming mouse claims to be first ever 3D mouse

    That thumbstick could be useful if it's possible to bind keys to it, and it's "clicky" - like a little HUD one on top of a joystick. It'd be like having (at least) four thumb buttons.

    Re: Lexip gaming mouse claims to be first ever 3D mouse

    TBH I can barely manage the two regular left and right buttons and the wheel/middle button without something going awry. Actually, I've managed several times to casually unscrew the silencer on the M4A1-S (accidental right-click) in Counter-Strike in the middle of a heated fight. Why would I want more buttons ...or joysticks, for that matter.

    Also, spelling "pixel" backwards really makes for an innovative company name.

    Difference is that your hand grips a joystick giving a stable platform with which to use several thumb hats, often with other finger buttons, while still canting the stick over across two diferent axes all at the same time.
    This is a mouse which requires use of the thumb to move it, in this case in four axes, which means the thumb is useless for thumbsticking at the same time.

    Re: Lexip gaming mouse claims to be first ever 3D mouse

    if it's a digital thumb stick, then it's only 4 buttons (maybe 8) given you don't need a lot of force to move a mouse about I can see this working ok, not sure it's any better than 4 good buttons.

    I seem to remember a mouse that had a mini tracker ball on the side . . . or was that just a fever dream?

    I don't ever recall a mouse with a pitch rocking movement, depending on how well that's done it might make a passable throttle control for flight controls, but a slider instead of that thumb stick on the side would probably be better.

    Looks analongue to me.
    Digital would have been better, a-la CH Products hats, or something.

    But try it - Grip your mouse and move it, while pretending that you're rolling it on the X axis and thumbing a joystick at the same time... see how it feels.

    I find it difficult enough trying to negotiate 12 thumb buttons on my Razer Naga, nevermind having a thumbstick. This is a clear case of try before you buy.
