With the trend in question being a shift towards ultra-light, with the goal seemingly being 'let's see how just light we can make these'. The new Project 4
from Swedish company Xtrfy
continues the trend of the M1, M2, and M3 but now with an eye toward esports and high-end performance.
“While a lot of gamers are going ultra-light, we see a standard that doesn’t match our image of the perfect mouse. It’s time to change that”, says Erik Jensen, CTO at Xtrfy. ”It’s time for lightweight mice to meet the demands of esporters. Based on feedback from our network of pro gamers and the gaming community in general, we’re creating a mouse that’s incredibly light yet top-performing and durable. With a right-handed, ergonomic shape for the right grip and feel.”
For the Project 4 this means a lightweight but durable 65 grams that still includes an ARM 32-bit microcontroller, Omron switches, and high-end Pizart sensor (the 3389). Plus, RGB lighting too.
Due for release this month at selected retailers for ~ $100 AUD, the Project 4 might just be the lightweight gaming mouse for 2019. For more info - head here
