WarMouse Meta


$80.00 Released June, 2010

Product Shot 1 The Pros:No annoying / distracting lights. Affordable price point compared to less functional mice. The most advanced mouse available - 18 buttons, thumb joystick and 512k of internal memory.

The Cons:Extreme nerd factor. What a piece of junk. Unattractive / cheaper looking and feeling plastic enclosure.

The WarMouse Meta is a mouse designed to help with complicated appliations and gaming. The most striking feature of the WarMouse Meta is the fact that it has 18 buttons on it (that is, 16 more than a regular mouse).

Where to Buy

The Meta Modeware software included allows you to assign specific functions to each button (for example, opening certain websites or programs). You can create and alter the application profiles of each button. There are also 63 operating modes available. These modes correspond to specific programs, websites and games. The buttons are divided in half by the clickable scroll wheel into left and right groupings. On each far side are the regular left and right click buttons. The other seven buttons on each side are labeled A1-A7 and B1-B7, and the left edge has a joystick and rounded-triangle clicker. This design is geared toward making the many commands of games like World of Warcraft realizable on a single mouse. This goal was the inspiration for the WarMouse Meta's creation, though this mouse will also be useful for applications that have nested pull-down menus and hotkey combinations. WarMouse promotes the Meta as having 12x the functionality of a regular two-button mouse.
