Iowa State University researchers have developed a new type of computer mouse/pointer. It’s supposed to be more ergonomic. I think it looks a bit odd, and I can’t see how it will be easier to use. I’ve tried a few trackball type mice, and usually they frustrate me. I can’t move the mouse pointer as quickly with them, and by the time I’m finished with whatever I’m doing (or have given up), my thumb feels cramped. This new mouse they’ve developed is controlled by the thumb as well. I hope it’s more effective as a pointer tool than the current ergonomic alternatives.
