Mionix has taken to Kickstarter to fund its new gaming mouse, the NAOS QG, or the new NAOS Quantified Gaming mouse. Mionix's new NAOS QG is the first mouse of its kind to track all sorts of information on you, as it has built-in sensors that are always keeping a track on your movements, on the mouse pad, and off of it.




The NAOS QG "tracks your heart rate, galvanic skin response and actions per minute" the company explains on its Kickstarter page, with the information being displayed on your screen through a transparent overlay. Gamers can then use the "NAOS QG can even share and compare their QG stats with teammates, friends and the community. This opens a new dimension to how games are played, shared and professionally broadcasted".




You can track your stress levels in real-time, measure your body reaction times, and keep track of your changes, and goals all within the software that Mionix has created for the new NAOS QG. You can pledge $79 for the NAOS QG, which is $50 off of the RRP of $129. At the time of writing, Mionix had secured itself $12,046 of the required $100,000 funding goal.
