    It took us nearly 1.5 years to bring the Func MS-3 to perfection, which speaks to the spirit and dedication we put into this product. What we have been trying to accomplish during the project is simple and can be summarized in one word, Advantage.

    We anatomically studied the hand to create a deeper understanding of how we can develop an ergonomic shape to keep your hand strain and stress-free while optimizing the button positioning. The MS-3 is indeed equipped with many buttons but they can all be reached without taking your eyes off the screen. We evaluated and re-worked the mouse several times before we were satisfied with the shape and button positioning but I have to admit that the result is fantastic. Another important piece in this puzzle, which has been a focus for us, is quality. We have a reputation to uphold, everybody knows how good our other products are. The MS-3 is equipped with the best components we could get our hands on to meet the requirement of a long product lifetime" says Arvid PĂ„lsson, responsible product developer for the MS-3 project.

    I have to say that I like the design, been looking for something like this, although I doubt it'll be on sale in the neck of the world I live in...

    If the software is better than the Mionix it might be a good buy

    reason may be that one of the co-founders of Mionix is at the helm there now;) Guessing software would be similar, but waiting on a sample to be sure.

    Func is a terrible name. Do you pronounce it funzy or funk?

    looks like its right handed, the bump on the right of it is for the index finger and pinky.

    Have gaming mouse sales increased recently? An increasing amount of companies are wanting to create gaming mice.
