QuadraClicks RBT (Right ‘Bove Touch) Gaming Mouse Review

0
Posted May 25, 2017 by Josh Jackson in Peripherals

Overview

Hardware:
 
Manufacturer:
 
Price at time of Review: $150 by backing the Indiegogo campaign
 

WHAT WE LIKED:

Surprising relief of tension in the hand during use, Feels like a more natural extension of the hand which leads to faster reaction time
 

WHAT WE DISLIKED:

Mouse wheel seems too far back and the front thumb button seems a bit too forward, but it looks like those changes are already underway. Pricey.
 
BOTTOM LINE:
The RBT definitely lives up to its claims on performance and while I can't verify carpal tunnel relief, I can say it feels more relaxing to use in relation to hand tension. Take it for what it's worth, but I have to own one now! (Remember that the review unit is a prototype)

Conclusion

They say you can’t reinvent the wheel, but maybe it’s because the right person hasn’t come along and tried it yet. The RBT has the potential to revolutionize the way everyone uses a mouse. While many computer users are casual, not looking for performance improvement or pain relief, gamers and professionals should certainly keep an eye out on what QuadraClicks is offering. I’m confident that if eSports competitors get a hold of these devices, they’d fall in love with them and feel a potential┬ácompetitive edge.

On the price front, we don’t have a lot to go off of since this is a product in it’s development stages. On the other hand, the base price to secure your own device on Indiegogo is $150. There’s still a little time so you can pick up these spots while they’re there. Sure, that’s pricey for a mouse, but is it pricey if it benefits your health in a major way? Once again, I don’t suffer from carpal tunnel, but if I did, then this would certainly beat the price of surgery. While I might not see the cost worth it for gaming improvement at first glance, it would be very hard for me not to own this device having had the chance to get used to it and severely miss it while I wait for the manufacturing to complete.

Ultimately, I’d love to see the RBTs get to a point where they can range in price from $50 on up, but the nature of kicking off a product like this means there will be higher overhead costs since manufacturing is slightly specialized towards the unique design. That said, I can’t bring myself to say the RBT isn’t worth the price. As a pro gamer or someone who suffers from mouse use pain, I believe it’s completely worth a leap of faith. If the final MSRP comes in over $300 though, I know that’s going to be too steep for many people. That said, it’s rare to find a product that targets a major lifestyle problem in the way the QuadraClicks RBT Rebel does, so we happily award it the Pureoverclock Editor’s Choice Award.
