Button swapping

Perhaps the features listed so far are somewhat ordinary but this next feature adds a whole new dimension to gaming and in the future other mice too. How about some button swapping?


Button on the bottom of the mouse

Everything starts with this little rectangle button at the bottom of the mouse. Press it and something unique happens...


Buttons released

Side of the mouse falls off. No, it is not broken in any way. This is a nice built-in feature that allows one to use that black piece of plastic that came with the package.


Perhaps you guessed it from the first two images already - Habu has the ability to change the side button positions. Depending on the way you hold the mouse, one of the side buttons is usually hard to reach. With this innovation, MS and Razer made it possible to select the button positions. There are only two possibilities but it opens a whole new way of designing the mouse. And it makes it easier for shopper to decide what mouse suits his/hers hand the best.

Also the two main buttons differ from the majority of the mice that I've used recently in the way they operate. One can click anywhere on them and the mouse will react. With many modern mice, there are no real buttons visible any more. The whole cover is one continuous piece of plastic. This affects the way the buttons react. With Habu, one can slide the hand all the way back and still use the main buttons.
