ErgoClick, the two-fisted mouse

Marc Perton

We've seen a lot of alternative pointing devices, but we don't think we've seen one like the Ergo Click before. Instead of a single-handed mouse, the ErgoClick splits pointing and clicking between the two hands. The idea is that, while one palm slides around to move the pointer, the other palm handles the clicking, minimizing hand and finger movement and lowering the risk of repetitive stress injuries. While this might be a good idea for someone who only uses a mouse, we can't help but think that for average users who constantly switch between keyboard and mouse, this will only make things worse, as they now have to take both hands off the keyboard to get anything done with the pointer.
