Exclusive: Unwilling to divulge details on Gigabyte's first multi-touch accessory, we had to jump through a few hoops to get an early look on the company's latest gaming mouse: the Aivia Xenon.
The multi-touch mouse isn't scheduled to launch until tomorrow at one of Gigabyte's unveiling parties, but we managed to get some play time with one of the first samples. We were also told by our contact window that the mouse we see here, may end up looking slightly different when it actually goes on sale.
The mouse itself has a single surface with left and right click actions, but this isn't the selling point. The mouse can be switched into several different modes, from multi-touch trackpad, to presentation mode, and then a painting-pad.
In multi-touch mousing mode, the Aivia Xenon recognizes horizontal and vertical scrolling, as well as zoom gestures. When switched into trackpad mode, you can actually use the entire surface to control the cursor. Presentation mode acts like a laser pointer. Users move a red-dot around the screen and can even draw shapes to highlight areas.
The Aivia Xenon is also DPI adjustable.
No pricing details were given to us.
