Moldable Mouse wins a Red Dot
The Moldable Mouse Concept designed by Lite-On Technology, P&C Design Center has won the Red Dot award: design concept 2007 in the Productivity and Work category. It’s made of lightweight modeling clay and covered with nylon and polyurethane blends fabric, and can be kneaded into shapes by users. Most high-tech mousse claim to be ergonomically designed, but ask the poor bloke who has been at the comp all day long, he will give you a reality check. The Moldable Mouse infuses a bit of fun and game into the drone of computing. On a more serious note, by allowing a wide variety of hand positions when holding the mouse, it reduces repeated motions of the same posture, thereby minimizing the chance of common mouse-related injuries such as the Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
The click buttons and touch-sensitive scroll pad of the Moldable Mouse are stick-on parts with built-in RFID (Radio Frequency Identification Device), which can be repositioned for maximum comfort.
