ODiN, innovative electro-optical mouse that starts your experience anew.

ODiN Aurora presents you a whole new experience with computer and mouse. The world's first laser projection mouse redefines your daily user habits for designing, gaming, work, and everything. Intuitive and convenient, ODiN Aurora is your must-have gadget for computers and laptops. It’s all designed, for you.

UPDATE: ODiN's New Feature

Dear backers, thank you for staying with us! We’re really humbled by your support, and we can’t wait to share the news with you. ODiN’s new feature, a user-defined application “button,” is here! The triangle runic symbol is now a “button” for you to define, in both Windows and Mac. Be it open a particular software or “back to the desktop”, the button is at your disposal. For the laser button, you can code your own macro and even share it on Serafim’s online forum!

According to an old Norse poem, ODiN the major diety is the originator of the runes. On that note, we believe ODiN is an innovative product that challenges people’s perception of electro-optical applications, and opens up a whole new world of endless possibilities.

The triangle runic symbol is now your self-defined button.

Inspired by Nordic mythology, ODiN Aurora embodies the powerful figure. Laser beams are projected as lightning when the legendary Odin throws his spear. A triangle, innovative and extraordinary in Runic alphabets, is also incorporated in the virtual pad design, projecting strength and courage into our life.

 Does your arm or wrist feel tired or even hurt after holding the traditional mouse for a long time? Pain no more! The problem is solved with ODiN Aurora. As your wrist comfortably rests on the table or other surfaces, your shoulder and arm muscles can take a break, so you can focus on work, game, or both, or anything!

ODiN Aurora supports multipoint controls. In the 8cm x 8cm project area, you only need, at most, two fingers to click, scroll, drag and zoom, as easy as that! With low CPU loading and responsive design, it enables smoother design and gaming experiences, wherever you go.

 Tiny and portable, ODiN Aurora only weighs 40 grams, fits well in your pocket or backpack, and consumes very littler power! This is the best travel companion for business travelers and your office on the go. It's compatible with Windows XP and later, as well as Mac OS. We will also continue to update software, so ODiN Aurora never goes outdated. Plug in to USB hub, and you're ready to enjoy!

 Privacy has been a concern for some people as they use gesture controllers, such as virtual keyboards, as cameras are integrated in the operation. Well, no worries with ODiN Aurora! With no camera involved, your privacy is ensured. It's good for confidential meetings of course, with doubled response speeds, minimized sensing modules, and smaller package.

 Although ODiN Aurora is our debut project under Serafim, our development and design team has already got extensive experiences in optoelectronics industry over ten years, working and taking orders from manufacturers all over the world. We aim to offer affordable, useful and cool devices for your better computing experience, and ODiN Aurora is the result after one year in development.

 ODiN Aurora comes in three colors: metal green, bright silver, and charcoal black. We maintain the best coloring process, so what you see is what you get!

 Founded in 2010 by a group of experts in optoelectronics industry, Serafim aims to offer affordable, useful and cool consumer electronics for a better computing experience. Team members obtain extensive experiences in local and international vendors, before building a brand of their own.

Serafim is derived from seraphs in Christian theology. It's the highest choir of the angelic hierarchy, representing light, thunder and fire. We aim to reach the highest rank in our professional fields with our passion. 

After designing smartphones, tablets and computer accessories for international brands, ODiN Aurora is the debut project of Serafim.

Risks and challenges

For many Kickstarter projects, it's especially difficult to choose the right manufacturers for production. With over a decade of experiences in optoelectronics industry, our team in Serafim will ensure the best quality and features for ODiN Aurora, our debut project.

Quality control is also a main focus for Serafim. Unlike traditional rectangular or oval shape, ODiN Aurora is designed with more stylish details. Although it may require a little more time, we will conduct all necessary tests and assembly processes before delivery to maintain the highest standards.
