ADATA XPG HEADSHOT Mouse and GENESIS DDR5 Memory Win Prestigious Good Design Award

ADATA XPG, a fast-growing provider of systems, components, and peripherals for Gamers, E-sports Pros, and Tech Enthusiasts, today announces that the XPG HEADSHOT gaming mouse and GENESIS DDR5 memory module have been recognized for design excellence with 2021 Good Design Awards.

The XPG HEADSHOT gaming mouse is a one-of-a-kind gaming mouse manufactured via 4D printing and AI technology. 4D printing is used to create a mechanical structure with a lattice mesh exterior that provides for an incredibly sturdy yet lightweight mouse. Thanks to 4D printing, the HEADSHOT can be custom-made to match the shape of an individual's hands for personalized ergonomics. Its design process was started with three key aspects, light weight, incomparable ergonomics and stylish design. XPG HEADSHOT also recently won Taiwan's most influential design award, the Golden Pin Design Award.
XPG GENESIS DDR5 Memory
The XPG GENESIS DDR5 is a next-generation memory module that aims to bring next-level performance to PC gamers and PC enthusiasts. As a top-of-the-line DRAM module, it sports a premium look and feel that is dominated by two metal surface treatments, one glossy and one matte. The module also makes use of intersecting geometric grooves and lines, and a beveled surface for added effect.

About the Good Design Award
The Good Design Award is Japan's most prestigious design evaluation and promotion program launched by the Japan Industrial Design Promotion Organization (today's Japan Institute of Design Promotion) in 1988. Based on the Good Design Selection System (or G Mark System) established by the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (today's Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry) in 1957, the program is committed to promoting and encouraging exemplary designs that facilitate industrial development and enrich people's lives.

It's printed in four dimensions? Interesting. So ... X, Y, Z, and time? (Sorry, but I think that might apply to all 3D prints! Whoops!)

Actually the idea is quite interesting: 4D printing - Wikipedia

Especially the part where materials assemble themselves like a transformer.

That's interesting, but does it mean that the mouse actually morphs to fit your hand? That would be really cool (though could also lead to a bunch of problems), but the press release copy is very vague about this, saying it "can be custom-made to match the shape of an individual's hands for personalized ergonomics". "Can be" does not mean "will be" last i checked, and "custom made" implies that this is a manufacturing side process, not something users can expect to happen in use. So, unless clarified further, I'm assuming this is a rigid casing made with a slightly unconventional production method and some very grandiose ad copy attached.

Who needs speeds? It's "top of the line". So, it's the fastest/most advanced memory they make. That means it must be good, right? (It's not like anyone's top of the line has ever been mediocre or bad, right? :rolleyes: ) We should just buy it, all of us. Who cares about concrete information? :D

That mouse looks like a magnet for grime and dirt. And quite possibly a pain in the ass to clean
