What if you could merge two joysticks into a mouse? Now you can, with Lexip. Lexip is a 3D mouse made for games like, “Elite Dangerous,” “Star Citizen” or “Minecraft.”

Lexip’s glide is performed with an ADNS-9800 laser sensor and provides a two-dimensional glide with 8200 dots per inch (DPI) with a speed/acc: 150ips/30g. The mouse includes two accelerometers, one which is assembled with the top shell and the other on the bottom circuit board.

An aspect that hasn’t been seen before in a gaming mouse is the internal mechanical two-axis tilt on the upper shell that tilts +/- 30 degrees in all directions. The rotation plane is horizontal: right, left, forward, backward and intended to be used with the palm. The tilting shell is composed of a quiet block linking Lexip’s top and bottom shells, which allows the bottom shell to remain stationary. The accelerometers register 550 individual points over the +/- 30 degrees tilt and are capable of inputting over 300,000 different joystick position values.

Lexip can be used by serious and casual gamers to bring more precision and accuracy to their gameplay. When used for long periods of time, Lexip is pretty comfortable to use. The hand grips are made of rubber for a comfortable grip, and the left side of Lexip includes a space to rest your thumb on.

One of the exciting aspects of Lexip is the mini thumb joystick with two thumb buttons above it which can send more than 90,000 angle values and perform complex sustained actions. 2 degrees of freedom is accessible and offers the use of a traditional joystick but in a compact version. Instead of using a hand to act, only a thumb is needed. With 30 degrees of tilt in four directions, it is easy to control the roll (z-axis), yaw (x-axis) and pitch.

To meet the personal needs of consumers, Lexip is customizable in its design and aesthetics. The LED backlight colors of the mouse can be changed and are easy to configure the configuration software. After the desired changes are made, the configurations are stored directly on Lexip’s microcontroller which ensures a lag-less transmission of every single in-game action.

Lexip will be available on Kickstarter for right handed and left handed users in late January. For backers to the Kickstarter campaign, one of the rewards include customizable items. After the Kickstarter, consumers can purchase a set of rubber coverings in various sizes, shapes, and colors to adapt to any player’s thumb size and grip comfort. The ceramic feet and side grip rubbers will be available in different weights and colors.

For more information, visit the Lexip website. Early backers can pre-order Lexip for a 33% discount at $100. The future retail value will be $149. The campaign has a goal of $25,000 (which it has reached). Shipping and delivery is estimated for June 2018.
