The Sinister is a gaming controller...thing currently up on Kickstarter that looks, well, nothing like a gaming mouse.

The idea is similar to that of R.A.T.7, which got an A for effort but a C- for comfort. The Sinister looks to get around that by not being slightly customisable, but entirely customisable.

You can pivot, rotate and slide the major components into any configuration you deem comfortable, and it's also got some fancy inputs that let it mimic either a PC mouse, keyboard controls or Xbox pad. It's also got haptic feedback.

DISCUSSION

It definitely would be something I would have to try.

All I really want is for Razer to take their Orbweaver keypad, put a non-crap analog stick option that the game will recognize as analog movement, and a spacebar option that doesn't involve stretching my thumb to an uncomfortable degree. If I idealize even more, pressure-sensitive keys. That way I get the best of both worlds when it comes to a gamepad, and having mouse precision.
