How’s Your Penmanship?


In July of 2011, I blogged about a vertical mouse that looks like a penguin. Today’s ergonomic upright mouse looks more like an old-fashioned quill pen. This “Penclic Mouse™” product takes you back to the days of writing longhand – without the writer’s cramp. The angled pen shaft allows you to rest your wrist in a natural position during mouse use. The feel of the pen in your hand is designed to make navigation intuitive. Anyone who has ever doodled on a legal pad can get the hang of this mouse. You gain precision control over the cursor easily with the fine movements of your fingertips. The brochure for this product says that it’s almost as if the mouse is anticipating your next move. Mind-reading claims aside, there’s no denying that the days of innovation for the mouse are far from over.
