Hi all,

Mionix new gaming mouse with heartrate, galvanic skin response and activity monitoring is now available to pre-order. This mouse had a load of buzz around it when they launched the kickstarter for it. I'm looking forward to a third party app where I can use the galvanic skin response detector to play a little game of lie detector with my wife :)

The mouse is designed for those who use a palm grip for the sensors to work, so if your a "Claw" then go for something else. It's been in development since 2014 and so should be a quality product , like the rest of the Mionix gear. I'm thinking this product is aimed at professional gamers and streamers to be able to gain insights into their performance or share their bodies reactions to gaming scenarios. I can imagine the data being useful to gaming companies to alter their game design to create more scenarios in their games that provoke greater reactions from players. Some blurb from the kickstarter:

A NEW DIMENSION OF GAMING

We created the NAOS Quantified Gaming mouse to enable you to get deep insights into how your body reactions effect your performance

Via built in sensors, the NAOS QG tracks your heart rate, galvanic skin response and actions per minute. This data appears as a transparent overlay on your screen.

Just like athletes gather and analyze data, we want to do the same for gamers. Provide you with deep insights. Enable you to understand your reactions and optimize your gaming.

Sounds awesome, right? You have no idea yet.

WIth the NAOS QG you can share and compare QG stats with friends and the community. This opens a whole new dimension.

NAOS QG enables you to understand your body reactions, without ever compromising on performance. This is what makes it possible:

A cutting edge optical mouse with outstanding ergonomics, highest build quality and awesome performance
State of the art sensors, built into the mouse
A Quantified Gaming software engine that brings it all together

TRACK, MONITOR, ANALYZE

SHARING

Here is the best part: Option to share your physical reaction with others through Twitch and your favorite social media channels! Display your stress levels live on-screen to your followers and casters. You decide when, how and what data you want to share. Simple and awesome as that.

WE ARE BUILDING QG COMMUNITY

NAOS QG is just the first step towards an open Quantified Gaming platform. We are developing APIs so you can create your own Quantified Gaming experiences.

We welcome developers and hardware teams to join the Quantified Gaming community, where players can share applications and data to give gaming a long awaited new impulse. Stay tuned for more info on www.quantifiedgaming.org

SOFTWARE

The Quantified Gaming software can be used with any game (and even with other apps). No matter if you are hunting panzers in World of Tanks, zerging in StarCraft II, facing a penalty in FIFA 15, sneaking by the witch in Left4Dead2 or playing Online Poker, Quantified Gaming will add a new experience to your game.

It is completely independent of the game or play

The QG software takes screenshots and time stamps, so you can easily can analyze your peaks or certain patterns and relate them to situations.

SENSORS

NAOS QG contains sensors that track and monitor your body reactions for real time information whilst using it

Heart rate sensor - optical heart rate sensor, using 515 nm InGaN PWM controlled LED, high-sensitivity photo sensor and advanced noise-surpressing algorithms to extract heart rate from blood flow variations.

Galvanic Skin Response sensors, measuring galvanic skin response as an indication of excitement and stress. - high resistance voltage dividers, low noise amplifiers and software algorithms especially optimized for gaming to derive changes in stress from skin moisture level.

The sensors are positioned on the back of the mouse for smooth and interruption-free tracking. Due to the ergonomic shape of the NAOS, the sensors' positions are optimized for right-hand gamers using the palm grip.

Please note that sensor placement and design may be adjusted during the development process for optimization.

OPEN APIs

Oh yah, one last thing: we kept the APIs not only open but also free for everybody to use. We invite all game developers and hackers to incorporate QG data into their games or applications.

Wouldn't it be awesome to have sweat running into your character's eyes in BF5 when the sensors detect your hand is perspiring? C’mon DICE, your turn!

£110 is all I take away from this, very happy with my second hand like new deathadder chroma for £35. So many mice out that are under £50 that are excellent and this is over double that figure ^_^

Well that's... odd. The Naos 7000 I picked up a few weeks back is a great mouse, but the doubling-and-a-bit of the price for a few gimmicky features that no gamer ever asked for seems a wee bit steep.

Tin foil hats on; just more ways for the NSA and reptilians to spy on us with :p

The heart rate sensor is to monitor for residual life signs after your O.H. finds out how much you spent on a mouse (or possibly an overly energetic 'browsing session').

Can't wait to watch Twitch/Youtube and have a live feed of their heart rate.

"Call of Duty Gameplay - OMG MY HEART RATE!!111"

What a time to be alive.

Quite a few streamers already do this when playing 'horror' games.

£110 for a mouse is crazy, especially considering I've got a Mionix Avior for work and that cost me around £40. :eek:

Such a good mouse though, I've looked for an FPS mouse for years thats decent and I think theres nothing better than this Avior. Perfect fit for my hand.

Yeah the Mionix range are superbly built. Like the Logitech MX518 of old, but better.
