Not sure yet, CAD said it takes about 8g off, so not huge. But I'll be printing a few things soon, I'll post the weight reductions when I've got them.

Its for the Astrum, a free bonus, and it's optional. Its for enthusiasts, mostly.

Its an enthusiast/DIY thing, so its not something a big company would do, so I think that's why it hasn't happened before. Its basically something I think the enthusiast community will like.

To be honest, I regretted mentioning it shortly after, there was no real need, you'll see it soon anyway. I remembered I hate keeping a secret when people know I'm keeping one. Its much easier when people don't know [IMG class=inlineimg]/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif[/IMG]
My guess is this mean it will be flashable like an Arduino where you can modify the source code to your liking? That would be a nice feature

Why not, as long as it's still coming and not vanishing into the depths of 'what might of been'.

This mouse can come out into the Light of Day whenever it chooses. It will be a very timid creature that needs our care and attention when it shows itself.

Looking forward to it's eventual arrival on our Desks and Gaming Pads.

I started out as a "Leftie" but eventually switched over to the other side.

No regrets whatsoever because this is after all the RIGHTie world of play here. Knew that one day the Right's will kill off all Leftie's hence was better off changing arms than sticking with a dying decision to remain on the left side.

Not fair I know, but this is the World we are all currently forced to live in. Until that changes, you are forced to adapt or fall by the way side.

They've finished the tooling, which took a while because they're busy. Its really annoying because the factory will give the standard time it takes, then if that changes (like, they book it in and it turns out it'll take longer), they don't tell me.

They also wanted some changes to the PCB after the tooling was finished, and my engineer was away on business so he didn't get round to making the changes for a while (I only sent the factory the new PCB designs yesterday).

The other thing is I'm going to test the microchip direct chip programming, since its what will be used in manufacturing. Basically you send the firmware with the order of the MCUs, and they are programmed with it. So far I've been just manually updating the FW, so I haven't tried their service yet. I am waiting for new FW from my engineer at the moment, when I get that I can order the MCUs, which take about 3 days to get to the factory.

So how long it takes depends on three things: The time it takes the factory to make the PCBs, the time it takes my engineer to send me the new FW, and the time it takes Microchip to send the MCUs.

Hopefully, these will be the last changes needed, so the mouse will be final after I get these samples. While the mouse with reviewers, it'll be FCC/CE tested, which should be easy. Then it'll be ready to be mass produced, which will take 1.5-2 months. It might take a little longer, because it's a new model for them and they'll probably want to figure out how best to manufacture it on the production line.
