Well, things have been tweaked.
The mold of the shell has been changed in various places, so its not exactly the same as the ones you'll find on amazon. I identified a few areas of concern around the buttons and scroll area, and they have been changed.
Then the firmware has been specified by me, it was my idea to create a menu system on the mouse and exactly how it would work, and testing the mouse to make sure the firmware was written well, a lot of which required them to create it from scratch instead of using cut and pasted code from other firmwares.
Then I used the best components that were compatible and available, affordability wasn't really a big factor in that area, I could have used cheaper components and they would have been just as available and compatible, but I chose to use the best I could. Also it would have been way easier to just go with a standard cord, but the factory and I worked with their supplier to make a new one.
