Cyborg already had the R.A.T. mouse line for FPS games in its catalog. Now the company releases the M.M.O.7 with basically the same R.A.T. body but aimed at MMORPGs, a game genre that has World of Warcraft as its prime example. The distinctive feature over the competition is the body, which resembles a Transformer. The M.M.O.7 has some exposed body parts and it is reshapable; that is, the user can change bits and pieces to adjust the peripheral to his or her hand. The mouse has 13 reconfigurable buttons that are able to control 78 functions, a weight adjustment system, and a sensor that reaches 6,400 dpi of resolution. First, we will describe its physical aspects and then proceed to its configuration and operation.

The M.M.O.7 is a right-handed mouse with a mechanized design, a sleek black body and several easy-to-spot orange buttons. It comes with two additional pinkie and palm rests, some rubberized, some bigger than others, so the user can adjust the M.M.O.7 to his or her favorite grip. The thumb rest is not replaceable, but it can be tweaked to be accessible to any finger size.

As for the buttons, there is one near the right side over the pinkie rest; three independent buttons on the forward edge beside the traditional left and right click, the resolution control key and the scroll wheel; five buttons on the thumb rest plus a distinct little round one that resembles an analog videogame control; and finally, another wheel for horizontal scrolling. In total, there are 13 buttons. It’s a lot of options, but thanks to the reshapable body, the user can build his or her own design for the M.M.O.7 and be able to reach most buttons.

On the underside, the user can find the 6,400 dpi sensor, the five weights (six grams each) of the weight adjustment system, Teflon feet, and a tool to change the spare pieces. The M.M.O.7 has braided cloth cable with a gold-plated USB connector.
