We give a brief review of deformed N = 8 supersymmetric mechanics as a generalization of SU(2|1) mechanics. It is based on the worldline realizations of the supergroups SU(2|2) and SU(4|1) in the appropriate N = 8 , d = 1 superspaces. The corresponding models are deformations of the standard N = 8 mechanics models by a mass parameter m. View Full-Text
