Gaming With the Mystify Claw

A little help for gammers? ...

"The Mystify Claw is not quite a mouse, not even a keyboard. It acts as a docking station for your left hand with ten programmable buttons at your fingertips. Each button can be assigned its own function—customized for different programs if you like—and can also execute a sequence of commands, such as jumping and shooting at the same time.

Why would anyone consider having the Claw around as anything other than an ugly paperweight? Simple: Ergonomics and control. Your left hand (your right hand controls the mouse) comfortably sits snug on the claw, where grooves guide your fingers into position. Each finger controls one, two, or four buttons at a time, some of which are arranged to accommodate FPS games. For instance, two buttons stacked vertically are ideal for walking forward and backward, and buttons sitting side by side are ideal for left and right movement. As for the other six buttons? We'll leave those up to your imagination."   continued ...   (Via ExtremeTech)
