The prize awarded by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) honours the first real revolution in the history of the mouse since its invention in the last century. One of the most innovative mice in the PC Gaming universe has just been awarded in the Computer Accessories category at CES Las Vegas. Only nine products were awarded in this category in 2019. This new CTA award, presented at the CES Show in Las Vegas, confirms the ultra innovative nature of this mouse, which had already received three awards in the previous edition in 2018.
The Lexip Pu94 offers advanced technical features, including its thumb joystick combined with an internal pivot. It also has ceramic glides that make it easy to handle. Beyond the pure technique, the use changes the potential of this PC accessory. All 3-D actions become intuitive, because the internal pivot and thumb joystick allow the choice to move in 3D, or to manipulate objects (movement, rotation, etc.) with a simple movement of the thumb or wrist. These features make it an ideal ally for gaming enthusiasts, especially on games such as Rocket League® or The Sims™ 4.
It is also a valuable tool for users of 3D design and engineering software and gaming production. "Pu94 is fundamentally innovative, both in terms of technology and usage," explains Lionel Chataignier, founder of Pixminds and Lexip. The mouse offers precision, performance, speed and comfort during long game sessions. Pu94 was a resounding success on the crowdfunding platform Kickstarter at the beginning of 2018, proving that the mouse has found its market with gamers. It is currently the most funded mouse on this platform.
It is now available at the recommended retail price of 129€90 on store.lexip.co as well as from Lexip's partners for online and in-store distribution.
