We are back!  

After our last successfully funded Kickstarter campaign we have decided to bring this monster to life.

Get ready to experience your computer in a whole different way with Aerion Mouse. 

 

Cables, connectors, mouse pads, clicks, non reflective surfaces... OLD SCHOOL

Aerion Mouse was designed in the simplest possible way, to replace the old mouse once and for all... we have been waiting since 1965!

We have integrated an extremely accurate gyroscope system into this small gadget. The gyroscope is used to track the rotation of the Aerion Mouse in all directions. 

No cameras, no tracking devices. Just take this baby in between any two fingers and start navigating.

Ergonomic right handed mouse? Bad for society!

Designed for efficiency, customizability and comfort,
Aerion Mouse
 is designed for both left and right handed, fitting perfectly in between any hand's fingers.
Lean it to your left, you will have a soft left click, lean to the right and feel the right click.
The word "click" will start feeling old school to you very soon.

You will feel like driving an aircraft or spaceship. 

Universally compatible with most operating systems, including handheld like Android and iOS, Aerion serves many different purposes, giving a very positive user experience when dealing with:

  • Gaming (give your shooter games a whole new dimension, or simply play solitaire, up to you!)
  • Office and Presentations (those powerpoints flow naturally)
  • Multimedia (from watching a movie to surfing the web)

Remember when we had to stop typing just to grab the mouse? History books, let our kids laugh at us.  

Aerion Mouse can be kept on hand while typing and it can also be used while typing (requiring minimum skills).
Anyone working with a computer would understand the infinite advantages of having mouse and keyboard integrated in one hand.

Netdoctor explains a couple ways to decrease hand and wrist fatigue caused by using a conventional mouse.
We found a unique solution to solve this problem: 

Old mouse ---> Trash bin.

The mechanical pressure needed to move the mouse and keep it going through the surface friction forces will end up causing trouble that we don't want to see EVER AGAIN. You can put the mouse pad in a museum. 

What's inside the Aerion Mouse?

You are probably as curious as we are, so we will try to explain you a bit about it.

Body

15 grams of ergonomically designed to fit between any pair of fingers. It is divided in 3 parts: an upper case, a middle band for sealing the case and a lower case. The sealing case contains the micro USB power inlet. Modern and versatile. The 3 parts can be manufactured in ANY color you can think of.

You can charge it with your own USB cable, but if you really want the full experience, try the charging dock specifically designed for the Aerion Mouse.

Soul

Our engineers made the soul out of an extremely accurate electronic gyroscope (that can easily measure down to 0.1 degrees rotation).
The brain processes the data sending it via Bluetooth to your system (any computer, tablet, phone, OTT, etc.). Simple and elegant.

Night time... Day time!

And don't worry about finding it in the dark.

What we need

Your contribution will be allocated to palliate 2 challenges: 

1) Getting an aluminum mold for smoothing the Aerion and mass manufacturing it. Estimated cost: 4,000 USD.

2) Reduce and simplify the PCB for improving the capabilities of the Aerion (battery life and energy consumption mainly). 
Estimated cost: 1,500 USD.

Your help is vital, help us bring Aerion to life!

Unlock Rewards

Bonus 1 - Unlocked at 10.000 USD

Bonus 2 - Unlocked at 15.000 USD

Once the bonuses get unlocked, they'll be included in every package with no extra fee!

Who's behind the Aerion Mouse? 

Engineers (electrical, mechanical, industrial and software), designers (industrial and makers), marketing specialist and entrepreneurs got together to create the Aerion Mouse.

Risks and challenges

There is NO RISK here, but there are some challenges.

We would really want to improve the Aerion Mouse to the limit.
We have been suggested to add some features for gesture detection, integrated laser pointer, QI wireless charging, etc.

Innovation will require your help, and we're hoping to get you the best cutting edge technology.

Manufacturing a big batch of these can also be VERY tricky, but with your help we will bring the best quality and the optimum manufacturing technique to bring Aerion Mouse to this world, and for that we need an Aerion Mouse aluminum mold.

Electronics can also be improved by redesigning the PCB into a more compact and less energy consuming model.

Every contribution will help us making this your perfect Christmas gift.
