Formify is making custom mice based on the shape of your hand

Formify is a startup company that wants to change how players see gaming mice. Unlike other gaming peripheral companies, Formify aims to create mice specific for users using unique technologies by designing custom-made mice adjusted to your personal hand measurements to provide the best ergonomic grip possible. 

Formify‘s innovative software builds a personalized 3D model of your grip using only a photo of your hand. This photo is then used to manufacture a mouse specifically made to match your demands. On average, each mouse weighs about 55g.

However, ergonomics aren't everything. Formify's gaming mouse also packs a Pixart PMW3395 sensor with 650IPS tracking speed and a resolution of up to 26K DPI. The mouse supports a lift-off distance of < 2 mm. However, you can increase that distance to 2 or 3mm. For the switches, Formify decided on the Kailh 8.0 clear.

The process of having your custom-made mouse can be divided into three steps. First, Formify will ask for a photo of your hand. Then, it will use that photo to design a mouse for you. Lastly, it will build the mouse using 3D printing technology. As an extra step, you can ask the company to add a specific texture pattern to your mouse.

Formify's Kickstarter is launching on March 21st. Pricing hasn't been revealed yet, but early supporters who sign up for the company's newsletter can get up to 20% off an order.
