Maxell ErgoMotion Mouse Is Really Just A Joystick
UPDATED. If it ain’t broke don’t try to fix it. Apparently, Maxell never got wind of this saying and has decided to fix, or should I say has attempted to fix the computer mouse.
The ErgoMotion Mouse forgoes the standard laser or optical tracking sensor, and instead replaces it with a joy stick like experience. To move the mouse pointer forward or backward, left or right you simply lean the mouse in that direction, much like a joystick. Unfortunately, and according to Laptop Mag, leaning forward was a challenge and usually resulted in the left and right buttons being inadvertently clicked. Sliding the mouse around on the desk only relocates its physical position and we imagine that having your hand lifted inches above the desk would lead to rapid fatigue.
