Epic equipment Brings Modular transfer concept To ‘Morph’ Gaming Mouse

In advance this 12 months, Epic tools debuted modular MMS switches on its Defiant keyboard. Users can pluck out a transfer and replace it with a specific type with little problem. The organization has ported the equal concept to a brand new gaming mouse known as the “Morph” that it will reveal off at Computex 2016.

Surely, the Morph takes matters a step in addition. You cannot use the handiest swap out each of the left and right switches; you could even alternate the sensor. (Mimicking a fashion we saw at CES in advance this yr, modularity is the call of the sport.)

To get entry to the switches (to which Epic tools is lending the MMS [Modular Switch Structure] call), pop off both the palm rest (that’s secured in the region by using magnets) and a cowl underneath that hides the transfer assemblies. They’re truely small modules with a touch button sticking up on the pinnacle. Omron does the transfer modules, and Epic gear is running with the agency to make 3 styles of switches for the Morph. The switches all require different amounts of stress for actuation, and that they healthy the MMS switches in the shade. That is, they’re grey, orange, or pink.


On the Morph, grey is “moderate,” Orange is “medium,” and crimson is “pro” and calls for the greatest quantity of pressure to actuate. (on the Defiant keyboard, the grey switches are linear like Reds, the Orange ones are tactile like Browns, and the pink ones are clicky like Blues.)

Epic gear offers you the identical key puller that it ships with the Defiant keyboard to cast off a switch module.

You may additionally switch out the mouse sensor, which’s housed in a detachable square module called a Modular switch Cartridge (MSC). The Morph will ship with two modules–the Avago 3362 optical sensors and the Avago 9800 laser sensors. Exchanging one module for the alternative is quick and trivial.


Unsurprisingly, this eminently customizable mouse has a sequence of removable weights. Overall, there are 4 5g weights, every half-moon that slots in succession into the gap below the palm rest. That won’t sound like tons weight, but thinking about that many mice weigh as low as 90g, that 20g is sizeable.

Wait, there’s extra: despite the fact that Epic equipment wouldn’t inform me who it became partnering with on it, you’ll have the option to feature a custom-designed brand on the palm relaxation. And if that wasn’t enough, the Morph has RGB lighting.

The Morph remains a prototype; however, I inferred that Epic gear is planning to roll it out soon, and due to the fact the team desired to reveal it off at Computex, they added a “prototype” that’s near the final version. Because it is a prototype, in any case, there are no pricing facts but.
