Ergonomic Tilting Mouse


Tilting Mouse
I’ve just received a press release about a new sort of mouse that you just have to tilt to control rather than moving it around the desk. It’s an interesting concept and could be especially useful for laptops where you don’t always have the physical space to use a conventional mouse. Press release follows:

The new moving controller designed by Wolfe Systems and engineered by Iguana Robotics leaves the mouse pad behind and operates without conventional boundaries.

The controller operates similar to the pilot stick in an A-4 Skyhawk (ex-navy pilot)

The system is fully ergonomic movement ideal for gaming, CAD, drawing programs and standard input.

The controller operates from the same spot and therefore does not require the standard controller search from keyboard operations and is not bounded or confined by a mouse pad.

– The system is the first controller accepted and utilized in the rapidly expanding ergonomic market.

Full operational or rotational use: gaming, draw, medical and CAD applications are no longer bounded or interrupted by the operating surface.

You can find more information on the Wolfe Systems website.

I would love to try one of these. I wonder if there’s anywhere it can be purchased now.

Cool Mouse. When will the mouse be available for purchase and where?

This is pretty sweet looking. I wonder if lack of wrist use would actually be a worse thing then a bit more use.
I use an Evoluent mouse which I really like. I really notice a difference too. The only problem that I have w/ it is, just like the video, you must keep picking it up and replacing it on your mouse pad or moving it off screen to “reset” it.

I hope the above link works as it will be my first html posting. 😉 If it didn’t work here is the url so I don’t have to post twice.
