80$ for 4 buttons! Are they mad?

In this case, for 3 buttons :p

I could probably build something more solid for less cost with the PCB layout and a weekend or two with my home-built CNC machine

Looks like a DDR pad gone horribly wrong.

looks like they were just way to eager to show you an incomplete product.
would have been better to just get 4 electric-keyboard pedals and wire them to work on USB.

Having had a play with these myself, I agree. They are terrible totally no feedback when you press on them.

Concept sounds quite cool, I've always wished I had an extra hand or two to make gaming that much easier, but it's a shame the didn't do it right.

badly done and expensive, bury it deep!!!!!
i think i saw a review of that thing in another place and it got a good score.

For some reason Gizmodo were very pleased with it if I remember correctly, with Kotaku linking them and saying they thought it was good. I think it was probably a case of them not trying it out properly if at all and thinking the concept was cool. There are some definite design flaws that are inescapable as soon as you try and use it.

I agree with Veles. I have some nerve damage in some of my fingers, making it difficult to become proficient at hitting keys with my ring finger and pinky finger. I had thought of having foot pedals for some extra buttons. I thought it would be especially cool for a game like F.E.A.R., to assign the melee kick to a foot pedal. Its a good idea, but the application seems to miss the mark.

I've heard thats actually a very good mouse, perfect for people who "finger mouse" instead of the strange people who palm mouse *shudders*

have you seen the 'how to use the mouse' video ? It might be true that it's precise for those who 'fingermouse' , but there is no denying that it must be incredibly uncomfortable

Dumbest thing I've ever seen.

It's like having a joystick to drive a car.

That mouse looks like a prop from the set of a bad sci-fi movie.

I can't help but laugh at this, I have not seen such a badly designed and built product for quite a while. Most amusing :D

Out of curiousity... how does a product get a 1? Becuase there seemed to be absolutely no positives at all to this product. Yet the total score was still 11/40... Where'd those points come from?

it seems like you need superflexible fingers to use that comfortably. especially those side buttons.

Well, there is a certain inventiveness to it even if the product is awful. Plus, despite a few design flaws, it can actually be used for some stupidly simple tasks. If it was inane and worked not at all then it gets a one. These look ok at least and worked a fraction, plus having a novel idea, so it brings them up a point or two.

Hardly any though when we consider 7 to be the average score for a moderately decent product.

Well, if you plugged in a USB memory stick that installed spyware and pron dialers, or an external HDD enclosure that randomly reformats the drive instead of defragmenting it, or a mouse that gives you irregular electric shocks, that might come close. Or a case with all the internal edges filed to razors
