The mouse we were pimiping at the event was provided by our sponsors www.gamingmouse.com. The company who makes it, GWSystems, do alot of development work for Razer and Logitech so the guys know what they are talking about! The theory is that because you have more muscles in your fingers than your wrist and forearm, you are mose able to accurately use the mouse. It is quite a departure from the previous style and takes some getting used to. That being said, one guy picked it straight up, loaded up de_dust2 and blew the heads off 3 enemies without so much as a flinch! All at default settings. Here's the tech details:
Weighing in at 2.5 oz, the small, circular RTR-720 is approx 35% lighter and smaller than the average desktop mouse. Smaller and lighter means faster, more precise action, with less movement and work.
Placing the small circular mouse between the fingers and thumb enables the ultra-precise compound motion of the fingers to contribute to mouse movement. This means the mouse can be moved twice as fast or with double the accuracy of conventional handheld desktop mice.
7 buttons in total - with 4 buttons on top and 3 pressure zones built into the wrap around rubber grip, there is a button at every fingertip. Grip zones with Shift functions can quadruple the commands available from the other buttons.
1600 dpi (optical) for precise aiming and game control. X and Y axis sensitivity are individually and dynamically adjustable.
Top Exiting Mouse Cord eliminates drag for cordless perfomance.
The RTR-720 contains its own CPU, memory, and software for advanced performance without special disc-based drivers. The RTR-720 contains more than 5 times the processing power of the original IBM PC or Apple IIe which it uses to intelligently manage an innovative new suite of gaming controls and binding capabilities.
The RTR-720 with PAL 2.0 Mouse Controls and Binding Engine features the capability to save, store, and manage 30 complete sets of configuration instructions. Profiles are stored in onboard memory and can be dynamically changed to automatically or manually configure the RTR for use with specific games, mods, or applications. 32k of non-volatile onboard memory enables highly customized configurations to be automatically loaded upon game or program activationcompletely independently of the machine it is plugged to.

As for the system we were using it with, it was an Alienware Area 51-M 7700 Laptop with an Intel 3.6 P4, GeForce 6800 @ 400MHz/1100Mhz, 2GB DDR 500 RAM and plugged into the stunning 32" LG Monitor which was a stonking 8ms response.

I'm thinking it was an Inwin Q-500 case (got one myself), but the pics were a bit lacking on details so I'm not possitive... Kinda curious on whether I'm right or not, and I don't wan't to wait for the review thats been promised.
