Thanko’s wireless mouse exercises your muscles while you work on your computer

by Sayan Chakravarty

Be it the quirky, massive USB mask that offers protection from pollen, or the wicked USB headgear that gives relaxing massage at work, Thanko never fails to impress us with their whacky products. Their newest creation, a wireless computer mouse specially designed for people stuck with desk jobs and don’t have time for physical exercise to keep them fit. The mouse is fitted with EMS (Electrical Muscle Stimulant) which can stimulate muscles that need exercising by sending electrical impulses while working on the PC.

The mouse has six different pre set impulse patterns: random A, random B, Macho Man, Katatataki, color timer, and siren. The EMS powers off automatically after 15 minutes. It comes with two different sizes of impulse pads; large pad measures 45 × 74mm whereas the smaller pad measures 30 × 43mm. The mouse is powered 2 AAA batteries and weighs 88g. It is available for sale in Japan and retails for 5,980 Yen ($60 approx).
