A team of Toronto-based engineers has launched the Kickstarter campaign for Formify, a tailor-made, lightweight, and high-performance gaming mouse that is designed through the use of 3D scans, making it unique to each owner. According to the Kickstarter page, which counts 86 backers and $11,232 pledged at the time of this posting, a customer simply has to send in a picture of their hand, which is then analyzed by the team using machine learning to create a customized and presumably ideal design with 3D printing technology. Palm grip, claw grip, and a hybrid of the two styles are supported, while battery life is listed as being over two weeks on a single charge, coupled with Kailh 8.0 clear switches and ultra-low latency wireless technology.

From a Kickstarter post:

We at Formify believe it’s ridiculous that gamers settle for generic, one-size-fits-all mice when precision, comfort, and weight make all the difference in competitive play. That is why we have dedicated the past 3 years to developing one of the most advanced gaming mice on the market, after refining with hundreds of prototypes and shape demos.

Your hand is the key to unlocking the full potential of your gaming experience — simply submit a picture of your hand and we’ll generate the ideal mouse. Our advanced technology analyzes your hand shape and size to produce the ultimate mouse shape for peak accuracy and performance. The mouse is manufactured using state-of-the-art Multi-Jet Fusion (MJF) technology.


  • Submit a Picture of Your Hand: Our process begins by having you submit a picture of your hand, which our system will use to analyze the size, shape, and contours of your hand.
  • Machine Learning Analysis: Our advanced machine learning algorithms will then analyze the picture of your hand, taking into account factors such as finger length, width, and hand size to identify the optimal design for your performance mouse.
  • Customized Design: Using the data gathered from the picture of your hand, we will generate a customized design for your mouse that is perfectly tailored to you. The generated design has been parametrically perfected through hundreds of iterations.
  • Manufacturing and Delivery: Once we have generated a design for your mouse, we’ll move forward with manufacturing your customized mouse. We employ industrial grade additive manufacturing (MJF) to create the highest quality product. Your finished product will be delivered to you in a timely manner, so you can start gaming with optimal precision and comfort.
