USB Mouse Wheel Encourages You To Type Faster

By Luke Anderson

Since I type for a living, I’ve learned to move my fingers quite quickly over the past several years. However, when you’re first learning to type, you don’t move nearly as fast. If you need a little encouragement to get your WPM (words per minute) count up, here’s an entertaining little device that should do the trick.

We’ve all seen those little exercise wheels that you can put a hamster or mouse in, well this is one for your computer, complete with a mouse (don’t worry, it’s made of plastic). The speed of the wheel is determined by the speed at which you are typing. Sure, it would probably get pretty annoying for an adult, but if you have a kid that’s just learning, it might be a good way to encourage them.
