Outline

This product is a high-end model of a thumb-operated trackball mouse. Inheriting the design concept for conventional models that focuses on a good fit with the curve of the hand, the product has evolved in terms of design, functions, and durability. Maximizing the exposure area of the trackball on the outside enables a wider range of ball operation. The product is designed to be inclined at 16 degrees to the setting surface, allowing for a more natural palm resting position. Equipped with wired, wireless, and Bluetooth connections, the product offers various operation settings. A switch manufactured by OMRON Corporation durable for 10 million clicks, an optical-designed wheel encoder free from wear during motion, and durable parts on the movable area are installed.
