Tmouse-Worlds first deformable mouse

$106,280

1,718

Tmouse is the first truly deformable mouse in the world that offers you two kinds of grip method by the means of deforming. You can stretch your palm to use the mouse as usual, or roll your palm like clenching your fist in a natural way to use it, making you feel more comfortable, interesting. Tmouse will change your clicking style, absolutely a new experience for most of the mouse users.

How Tmouse transfor

Convert the two grip methods easily by moving the slider forward and backward.

 Is it a TRANSFORMER? Of course not...it is a deformable mouse that provide you two methods of griping.

Why Tmouse

Keeping the same posture or doing the same action for a long time will make people get fatigued,  the same problem will occur to people when they use the mouse. When you use some mouses designed with the ergonomic concept, at the beginning you will feel comfortable , but you will become tired over a time of period, even have the feelings that a kind of fatigue replace another one, which means you are never free from the real fatigue. In other words we still need to change postures constantly to relieve fatigue.

A suitable mouse will make you comfortable, which is convenient to control when you move fast. Also, the well-positioned mouse will not exhaust your energy after operated for a long time. That will be greater if the mouse is good-looking and futuristic.

We are trying our best to ease Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Stretch Goal is Right Here! 

 After the many messages we received about adding more colors we did our research and we agree.. it would be pretty cool! This being the case, we added a Step-by-step Stretch Goal for Tmouse which makes it so much easier to accommodate the laptop or desktop computers, place with Macbook, surface pro etc. The colors will be maintained in mystery, each color will be unlocked in different levels funding amount. As always, we are here to hear your advises of stretch goal, please let us know what colors you like, we may add your favorite ones to the stretch goal.

2nd Stretch Goal

Tmouse with Ultraviolet Curing Paint section will be unlocked until $60,000 reached. UV paint is a environment friendly paint , widely used in Piano keys, high-end furniture, leathers and so on. The use of UV paint will keep Tmouse away from scratching, corrosion and deformation, Tmouse will be always brand new and bright.

3rd Stretch Goal

Tmouse third stretch goal is right here ! Military green color will be unlocked when $80,000 reached, we are required to add one to two more colors for Tmouse, we believe you will like the GREEN one !

Stretch Goal : Braided USB Cable

We got a few backers need wireless/wired Tmouse charged with braided USB cable and I wanted to tell you all about $100,000 Stretch Goal : Braided USB Cable .  

So, what exactly is the advantage of a braided cable over the typical cable that is sheathed in rubber/plastic? Braided cable is less likely to get damaged if Tmouse is moved around a lot , braided cables would offer extra layer protection to the mouse . Just imagine when your cat is chewing your plastic cable and get ripped , that hurts !

How people talk about Tmouse

We invited 4 passersby to have their simple experience on Tmouse, they are from Thailand, Mongolia, Hongkong and Singapore.

One mouse with two grip methods: Practice, comfortable and interesting

Before transformation

After transformation

Two grip methods: a. normal grip method provides efficient but not the most natural posture since index, middle and finges are not naturally placed , the muscles of palm and arm will be intense (find the pic below)

b. roll up your palm, which is a very natural posture, and it will make you feel indefatigability after a long time. Once you adapt this grip method, your efficiency will be improved. Shifting two kinds of postures will greatly lessen your fatigue when you use the mouse, you can have one more choice to avoid becoming mouse hand (see figure below):

If you are using mouse now, you can rotate your mouse to 90 degrees and then clasp it, or you can hold something like tubes, soon you will feel how comfortable this grip method is shown as below:

Unprecedented experience in shooting games

 

Tmouse offers you a positive posture like pulling the trigger. If you are a fan of video games, we are very pleased that you will have an amazing experience when using Tmouse. Normal mouse-keys or clicks are usually hard to click, you may not experience the true shooting experiences from those normal mouses on the market. Just to upgrate your game playing quality, we will use the high quality responding sensors which  are popular used in mainstream gaming mouse in the market.

Convenient touch bar

The touch bar is designed to fit the front of middle finger, you can slide your middle fingers forward and backward easily, it is unnecessary for the mouse users to raise their fingers like we use the ordinary mouses do and rotate the wheel in an unnatural posture. If you want to surf on the Internet, the wheel will be used more frequent than the left mouse button.

Ergonomic side buttons

The two side buttons are designed on the left side of mouse and will be separated in a reasonable distance to avoid much wrong operations.

Positioning accurately

Essentially, accuracy is so much of important. Especially for those engineering, drawing(like CAD) and gaming. To pursue better hand feeling, some producers'd like to manufacture the mouse quite big, though the big mouses will make consumers feel very comfortable when users place their hands still.  However, the faster you move, the worse the accurate will be made. Putting the mouse in your hand will be easier to control than letting your hand lie on the mouse. Tmouse's design will make you to grip the mouse in all aspects, which will ensure you to position  on the screen accurately to ease your fatigue.

Tmouse development

To prove our idea and achieve the expected effect, we try a lot of tentative test and come up with many solutions. During the process, we constantly improve the mouse, the following pictures just display the part of protopyping, 3d figure and mock-up.

Timeline

 Why kickstarter

To make our idea come true and let thousands mouse users have one more choice, we spend many months to develop this mouse, making the shape of mouse more beautiful and fitful to the ergonomics, improving the product's reliability, also, we have made many more available samples. In the following several months, we hope to achieve mass production, thus we need molding development, tooling and coordinate with kit-suppliers so as to keep our project alive. We need money, your support and your feedback that will help Tmose to come true.

Risks and challenges

Tmouse, from the concept, design, standard figure to the final prototype completed is a constant improving development process. We own experienced designers and engineers, and it is enough to deal with the various problems in the product design develop process.

But in the mass production, we meet some unpredictable problems like mould manufacture and suppliers' cooperation. And we know the most important part in this process is to fulfill our commitments, we will work hard to assure that you can share the extraordinary experience Tmouse brings to you on time rather than postpone it, your support will let us have enough confidence to accomplish it
