Cut the Cord: Wireless, Wearable Mouse Prevents RSI

The humble computer mouse is something that most of us use every day, but few of us think about. Those of us who don’t use the traditional mouse usually use either a trackball or trackpad, both of which hold the hand in an unnatural position, similar to how it would be held if you were using a mouse. And it’s been this way since the mouse was introduced in the 80s, so not many of us think about it. But the way we do computer mice might be set to change for the better, and very soon.

The AirMouse is set to be released within the next year for $129. And besides looking super futuristic, it might actually help you avoid repetitive stress injuries from constant mouse use. The wearable device only works as a mouse when your hand is in a flat, neutral position, so it encourages good hand posture and you can continue to wear the glove even when you’re typing. And because it’s wireless and can go up to a week between charges, you won’t be tethered to a cord.
