Mindshunter has made available ordering for its upcoming Zephyr mouse - a PC peripheral rodent that features a built-in cooling fan to, quote, "prevent sweaty palms". The Zephyr weighs just 68 g on account of its palm rest being highly perforated, which not only allows air from its built-in fan to cool your hands, but also reduces the mouse's weight (Mindshunters says its geometric design doesn't compromise rigidity or durability of the palm rest).
The Zephyr's call to fame is an angled RGB fan that sits inside the mouse's housing, which has three set speeds and an off position so you can adapt to thermal conditions on your environment. The Zephyr employs a PixArt 3389 sensor, with a maximum 16,000 DPI resolution that's tunable in 100 DPI increments. Omron switches with 50 million clicks of durability are also employed. It remains to be seen how does the operating fan affect the mouse's precision and control on your hands, and if the mouse registers any movement whilst idle and with only the fans spinning. The Zephyr is now available at a Super Early bird promotional pricing of $79 with a 50% off promotion, which places the mouse in the $160 territory for full pricing.
