distinctive FG-1000 FPSGUN Gaming Mouse.

The first thing you will notice is the very unusual and unique shape of the mouse. It may look unnatural but holding the mouse in this way is ergonomically better
than a standard mouse. It has been designed this way to aid gamers in FPS (First Person Shooters) games. It does this in many ways...
The reason the FPSGUN is designed like a upside-down gun us because it is places you hand in a more natural position. The grip is moulded to fit the palm of
your hand, making the FPSGUN very comfortable to hold. This design will aid to reduce RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury), which is ideal if you play FPS games
regularly. There is only one downside to this design, unfortunately if you are left-handed then this mouse would not be suitable.
Mouse button layout
The layout of the mouse buttons are extremely important for this type of design. They need to be easily accessible, just like a standard mouse. The right and left
click mouse buttons are located where you would normally expect the trigger for a real gun to be. The same fingers are used for right and left clicking as a
standard mouse. As you grip the FPSGUN your thumb will be able to access the scroll wheel along with two additional mouse buttons. For ease of use all mouse
buttons are customizable.

Optical sensor location
Standard mice have the optical sensor located on the base of the mouse directly underneath the users palm, the FPSGUN is totally different. Also when looking
left or right in game the users wrist acts as a pivot, unlike a standard mouse. The reason for this is that the optical sensor on the FPSGUN is located further down
the mouse allowing for quick on screen movements without the psychical movement of the mouse. The diagrams below should help clarify things a little better.
The FPSGUN is able to change the sensitivity of the mouse by a touch of a button. There are three different settings available. The default settings are 400, 800
and 1600 DPI, of course each of these settings can be customized using the supplied software. The scroll wheel changes color depends on the chosen setting.
The images below will provide the DPI range of each setting and its color.
- Tracking Resolution Programmable up to 2000 DPI, Default Presets - 1600/800/400 DPI
- Image Processing 6400 FPS
- Maximum Acceleration 15 g
