Joystick Mouse Nextick Hits Its Kickstarter Funding Goal in 3 Days

Just three days after launching on Kickstarter, Korean game company Aidus hits its funding goal with Nextick. Nextick is a reimagined 3D mouse that combines the functionalities of a regular mouse and a macro keyboard.

Nextick began its Kickstarter campaign on Sept. 13, 2021, and immediately received a warm welcome from the crowdfunding community. The mouse's versatility and freedom to customize are among the few reasons why early adopters support its campaign. On top of being offered at 34% off retail price, Nextick is here to revolutionize the way people see mouses.

Nextick is designed like a joystick, providing a comfortable grip for its users and the ability to manipulate a mouse in 3D mid-air space rather than a 2D flat surface. It shines brightest when playing games due to its maco shortcut keys, which allow users to designate specific commands to each key. It also has a vibration control through Bluetooth, which users can turn on so the entire joystick vibrates when certain commands are made, such as shooting.

However, Nextick also works like a normal mouse. Functions like moving the cursor, clicking, double-clicking, and scrolling are all possible. This provides further versatility than other 3D mouses currently on the market. Nextick can be used conveniently in regular day-to-day settings - whether that's for saving passwords on the shortcut keys or for browsing through Netflix remotely.

"We poured our heart and souls into creating Nextick," says Byung Chan Lee, CEO of Aidus. "It's truly a one-of-a-kind mouse that not only solves the problems of using regular 2D mouses for FPS or shooting games, but also we provide free access to Nextick's SDK so that backers can further unlock Nextick's potential to do even greater things." 

For a limited 30-days starting Sept. 13, 2021, Nextick will be available for pre-order at a 34% discount on retail price. In order to learn more about Nextick, visit Nextick on Kickstarter.
