Don’t worry if you can’t or won’t buy the new iPad. You can still have fun and save your wrists on your pc by using the ingenious but rather ungainly “airmouse”.
Technology aside, the aesthetic design could be so much more unless you like looking half-human…
Deanmark founder s Mark Bajramovic and Oren Tessler met in university, where Mark learned first-hand (no pun intended) what it’s like to OD on mousing. “Half way through our first year, I developed a computer mouse related RSI (Repetitive Stress Injury) and lost the use of my right hand and arm for several weeks,” he tells us. According to the company website, the clinically-tested product works by aligning itself with the ligaments of your hand and wrist. This lets you keep your hand in a neutral position, and transmits more of your vector force than would be possible with a regular mouse. Not only does this make it easier on your hand, but it increases your mousing speed and accuracy as well. The mouse is also designed to remain inactive until your hand is placed in a neutral, flat position, so you can easily go back and forth between typing and mousing.
The AirMouse should be available for purchase within the next 6 to 12 months, at a price of $US129.
