Thermaltake's new Black FP mouse offers lazy and the paranoid gamers a new way to log into their PC. The Black FP mouse adds a FIDO UAF-certified fingerprint sensor to an otherwise conventional gaming mouse.
Synaptics provides the headlining biometric fingerprint sensor, which employs the touchpad manufacturer's "Iron Veil" technology. Thermaltake claims the included software makes it easy for users to register their fingerprints for securely logging into Windows and websites. The manufacturer says the sensor is compatible with Windows 10's Security Center, allowing for biometric-authenticated file encryption and decryption.
Gamers are doubtless more interested in the Black FP's sensors and switches. An Avago 9500 optical sensor can handle up movements up 150 inches per second and allows selectable sensitivity up to 5,700 DPI. Thermaltake touts Omron switches with 5 million click rated lifespan, though this probably only applies to the two main switches, not the full complement of seven buttons.
The Black FP's body measures 4.8" x 2.7" x 1.6" (121mm x 69mm x 41mm) and contains five pockets for 4.5-g weights. Lighting, macros, profiles, and lift-off settings can be configured with Thermaltake's Command Center software. Thermaltake kindly requests $60 in exchange for the mouse.
