Mouse survey - developing a mouse for competitive gaming

Hi,

What kind of mouse are you using today and are you having problems with your current mouse? Do you have a separate mouse for gaming and work?

We are two engineering students that are currently doing our master thesis. The thesis is touching upon integrating digital footprinting with innovative product development in a beneficial and ethical way for both customers and developers.

SURVEY: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1F...rm?usp=sf_link

The survey takes 2-3 min and is part of the thesis even though the questions are about developing a gaming mouse. We are very passionate about gaming and we are optimistic about developing an innovative gaming mouse specific for competitive gaming.


With love from Stockholm.

I'd love a sensor as accurate as the G900 inside an "MMO" style mouse (doesn't even need the 1-0, just that wipe hand formed shape)

Do you use any particular grip while gaming?

I'm one of those can't quite find a comfortable claw, can't quite find a comfortable palm. I switched to a vertical mouse @ work, which I've actually grown to like, but once again TERRIBLE SENSOR (even though its logitech's uber expensive model) & @ home I now use a G900. But I'm heavily debating modding it into G503. Only problem is i'd be killing off all the extra buttons on the 503.

I've typically stuck to wide bodied mice (RAT pre-acquisition, razer's mmo mouse, G503, Roccat's garbage MMO mouse, etc) but that causes me to take a hit in the sensor department.

I'm likely a minority here.

Cold hands and sweaty hands were covered, but dry hands are not ? Mouse 'coatings' (nowadays usually not more than textured / sanded plastic) are getting worse and worse, especially for dry hands. Can't hold any of the current Logi's comfortably due to their bad coating.

yep. this $80 vertical logitech mouse is the cheapest damn thing I've ever felt.

Only reason its $80 is due to USB-C charging, direct bluetooth, and bluetooth dongle. The wired version is $20, n the wireless knock off is $19.

Have you tried the Intellimouse 3.0? Grip wise.

We haven't considered dry hands. So thank you for your input! Do you have any solution for dry hands usage?

Rival 110 currently on the table, problem is that it's not G100s shape and has a wide ass.

What's so special with the shape of G100?
