在6月1日的螢光派對登場的觸控滑鼠Aivia Xenon,就是這個。

看起來走的是針對年紀大的族群呀,還滿嚴肅的XD,與螢光派對的印象也差太多了。不過從技嘉所出的幾款Aivia系的產品來看,的確很有心經營這個系列,還請好好加油。

設計概念以及功能都滿強的,只可惜目前僅在T1階段,離量產還遠得很,這三台都是手工打造的,所以要好幾萬元。只是在現場沒有文字相關資料,我憑記憶力來寫一下這款觸控滑鼠的特質:

‧看起來比較適合客廳用的滑鼠
‧可切換滑鼠與觸控板模式
‧具備4個按鍵:電源鍵、切換鍵以及技嘉自定義的兩個按鍵
‧雖然說是觸控,但事實上左鍵與右鍵仍然傳統的微動開關設計。
‧可以看得出來有心在質感上(嗯,量產後不知還能不能保持就是)
‧造型上個人認為應該還有再變化的空間

跳轉後有比較詳細的說明。

Computex 2011: Gigabyte's Multi-Touch Mouse Aivia Xenon

So this what was unveiled in last night's (2011/06/01) neon party, in contrary to the jovial image one would normally associated with a neon party, one very solemn looking Gigabyte Aivia Xenon.


Design concept and functionality were great, however it's still in T1 stage, so it's still steps away from mass production. All three demonstration units shown in the photo above were all expensive, hand-crafted samples.


There were no promotional material given in the party, so from memory, here are some more exceptional features of this mouse:

  • Looks like something that would be more suitable to use in living room
  • Switchable between mouse and touchpad mode
  • four buttons: power, mode switch and two function buttons
  • Although claim to be touch control, left and right mouse button were in fact, conventional micro-switches
  • great finishing (however, one would wonder if that's going to upheld when it's put to mass production)
  • a lot of room to improve in terms of appearance
Continue after break for more descriptions and photos.
這款滑鼠是以方正為主的概念設計。上面是鏡面。有Aivia字樣的是滑鼠屁股,右邊的兩個按鈕是技嘉的自定義按鍵。晚點再來說明用法。
Very squarish design. Top-side is mirror-finished, the side marked with 'Aivia' is the rear of the mouse, on right hand side, two function keys

再反過來看還有兩個按鍵,前面是切換模式鍵,後面是電源鍵。
Two more buttons on the other side, the one towards the front is mode switch, follow by power button towards the rear.

在切換鍵的上方有LED指示燈。
In front of mode switch button, there is a LED indicator.

LED指示燈在藍光狀態下是滑鼠模式,而在紫光狀態下是觸控板模式,而紅光狀態下......,就是告訴你沒電了,可以換電池。
Blue indicates mouse mode, violet if its in touch pad mode, red means low battery

如果你是在滑鼠的狀況下:
1、上圖GIGABYTE字樣那邊是右鍵,按鈕那邊是左鍵。而左鍵有兩種按法,一種是正常的用右手食指按,另一種則是食、中指同時按。

2、具備中鍵功能(就是要按中間囉)

3、手指往左或往右橫擼的話,具備橫向捲軸功能。

4、印象中還有往上與往下擼,就是前一頁與後一頁功能。

5、切換模式鍵 + 技嘉自定義按鍵1:預設是將鼠身視為滾輪形態,這說起來有點抽象,簡單來說,就是鼠身移動的向量與滾輪移動的向量是一樣的。

6、切換模式鍵 + 技嘉自定義按鍵2:預設是將鼠身視為滾輪形態,與上述不同的是,要按住不放,屬於暫時性的。

In mouse mode:
  1. The side marked with 'GIGABYTE' is the right mouse button, the side shown with buttons nearby is the left mouse button.
  2. Do have a middle button (that is, click in the middle)
  3. Finger slide left or finger slide right triggers horizontal scrolling
  4. Finger slide up or slide down to triggers page up or page down
  5. Mode switch + function key 1 : turn the mouse into scroll wheel mode, under this mode, the movement of the mouse would simulate the scroll wheel movements as in conventional scroll wheel mouse.
  6. Mode switch + function key 2: turn the mouse into temporary scroll wheel mode, same as scroll wheel mode described above, but revert to normal mouse mode once buttons are released.
如果你是在觸控板的狀況下:
上面鏡面的部分就是單純觸控板了,原來左右鍵的功能不變,你可以拿在手上使用。至於相關機能,請比照具備多點觸控的筆記型電腦觸控板。
In touchpad mode, the top mirror finished panel would act as a multi-touch touchpad, the mouse button still works, and touch gestures are the same as most multi-touch touchpad.


以上的功能描述僅憑記憶,不太確定有沒有描述完整,再加上產品還未開模,改的機會也是很高,因此產品正式上市後,功能有變也說不定。
Since there were no press material supplied in the party, so all descriptions made above were purely out from memory, which may not fully describe all functionality of this mouse. And since it is still under development, so functionality and appearance may change when its put into mass production.

拆開後的樣子。
