Mycestro is a Computer Mouse That You Put On Your Finger

Mycestro

For years, people have been creating mock-ups of a computer mouse ring concept that’ll let users replace their current computer mice with something they can wear on their fingers. Now people can stop imagining because Nick Mastandrea has taken that idea and turned it into a reality with the Mycestro.

The Mycestro is a 3D mouse that allows its wearer to control his or her computer with hand gestures, and of course, the basic mouse functions. The handy device is fitted with a touch-sensitive panel that you’re supposed to touch to initiate cursor movement. It connects to your computer via Bluetooth and has a range of up to thirty feet.

Up Mouse Wants You to Click Up Instead of Click Down

UpMouse

Thus will begin your battle against carpal tunnel syndrome.

The solution? The Up Mouse. Instead of clicking down, this mouse will have you clicking up. This way, you’ll be using a whole different set of muscles that don’t go through the carpal tunnel at all. It might feel weird at first and will definitely take some time to get used to, but your wrist will thank you for it.

Check out a video of the Up Mouse prototype and a link on how you can get it after the jump.
