For most people, the mouse has become the only way to really interact with their computer in an optimized way. Don’t get me wrong though, there are plenty of ways we can interact with our computers, but the mouse is so far unchallenged when it comes to usage and interaction. As a matter of fact, we are all introduced to the mouse as soon as we sit down at a desktop computer. But we might start to broaden our minds when we have a look at the new mouse ring just made available.
I wouldn’t go as far as to say that the concept is new in any way, but it could definitely change some of our interaction with our computer. The mouse ring is actually quite a common technology when you start looking for similar solutions on the Internet. This just happens to be a super cheap solution with a huge impact that could appeal to anyone looking to become just a tad bit more mobile when they are working in front of the screen. The mouse ring is also a great way to relieve stress and pain for people with carpal tunnel problems since it enables the user to interact with their computer device in a much less stressful way.
This mouse ring is made available by Hammacher Schlemmer, and it will only set you back a measly $39.95. All you will really have to do is navigate the cursor on the screen by touching the thumb pad and using the right and left mouse ring buttons also located on the mouse ring. It’s a really simple and straightforward solution that could have a huge impact on the way you work in a positive way. Of course it is wireless, which makes it even more optimized. So far, its software is only calibrated to Windows 7, Vista and XP, but I am sure they are working on making it available on other operating systems as well. The batteries will last you about 8 hours, so you will have plenty of time to do your work. When it runs out, you simply hook up into your USB port, and it will recharge in about 30 minutes.
