Whenever we came across mouse designs we generally saw some odd shapes [chocolate mouse, golf mouse, frog mouse etc.] or the use of flashy colors. We also did find some wooden versions of the same. This one has an altogether different form with not just three or four buttons, but a pack of 18 buttons along with an analog joystick. It is called the OOMouse and is said to be the “the first multi-button application mouse designed for a wide variety of software applications” that was released on 6th November 2009.
OOMouse, a product of Warmouse, is capable of supporting 52 key commands and includes default modes for the five core OpenOffice.org applications, games and other applications as well. The joystick can be used as a keyboard making it an altogether a new way of experiencing a variety of applications including games.
The features of the OOMouse are:
- 18 programmable mouse buttons with double-click functionality
- Three different button modes: Key, Keypress, and Macro
