Logitech claims its new gaming mouse is the world's fastest. The G402 Hyperion Fury is designed specifically for first-person shooters, and it's supposed to be capable of tracking reliably at speeds up to 500" per second—a staggering 28 miles per hour. Here it is:
To handle such high speeds, the mouse combines Logitech's Delta Zero optical sensor with input from a gyroscope and accelerometer. A 32-bit ARM processor manages this "Fusion Engine," which has apparently been in development several years. Logitech even built a slick-looking machine to test the thing. You can see the rig in the Fusion Engine promo video embedded below. (Fast-forward to the ~1:13 mark if you want to skip the fluff.)
Apart from its unique tracking tech, the Hyperion Fury is fairly conventional. It has eight programmable buttons, a one-millisecond "report rate," and a four-way sensitivity switch with a range of 240-4000 DPI. Without the USB cable, the mouse weighs just 3.8 ounces (108 g), making it extremely light.
The Hyperion Fury is due to hit the U.S. in early August for $59.99. That's reasonably affordable given the technology inside, and I'm curious to see how it works in the real world. We might have to get one of these in for testing.
