The Adept Trackball is here.
You’re an Adept. Your trackball should be, too. And now, with six buttons and an amazing sensor, your trackball can be as skilled as you.
Let’s talk about buttons.
With six buttons to choose from, any layout is possible. Whatever you want and need out of your button layout, the Adept has you covered.
Great click experience
The switch pads are big, and if you click anywhere on them, you’ll experience the same, great click as anywhere else.
Powered by Omron’s D2LS-21 switch, the Adept’s buttons are guaranteed to last at least 5 millions actuations, with very low rates of false clicks.
Drag scroll functionality
Scroll wheels are out. Drag scroll is in. With the click of a button, you’re using the ball to scroll, for the most precise scrolling experience available.
You want things custom? You got it.
The Adept Trackball ships with QMK firmware preloaded, and VIA compatibility. That means that you can customize every button on your Adept using an online web app, and the changes persist to the Adept for ultimate portability.
3D-printed, and with a great finish.
A 3D-printed case means that you can print your own. You can repair it yourself, and print any colours you like. And best of all, the Adept’s design means that it has a great finish.
Any colour you want.
Multiple colours available
No matter your setup, we’ve got a colour in stock that’ll make the Adept fit in perfectly.
3D-printing means more possibilities
Of course, you’re not just limited to our case colours. Since the Adept is 3D-printed, your Adept can be as unique as you.
Not only do we ship multiple colours for cases, we also ship different ball colours. It’s the perfect flair of colour to make your setup shine.
Don’t forget the top-notch sensor.
The Adept Trackball comes with a PMW-3360 sensor, with polling rates of more than 1,000Hz and a DPI of up to 12,000. And with a ball that’s 1.75″ in diameter, you’ll get unparalleled precision.
It’s all open-source.
