Switches and encoders are not things that people think about every day, but
they are at the heart of a responsive, long-lasting, and high performance
mouse. We use components that yield a great mouse experience.
4. Custom firmware
Matias designs its own firmware, and has built tight integration into the
Mac OS, enabling the mouse to be controlled and customized with the Mac OS
mouse system settings, similar to the Apple mouse, as opposed to having to
install software or custom drivers. Not only does this make operating and
customizing the mouse easier, it also means a more secure technology
environment, ideal for businesses, governments and schools.
