If you have some sort of repetitive stress issue with your wrist or hands and need an alternative for mousing a trackball is a popular choice. You can control the mouse pointer with your fingers rather than your wrist with the trackball. Kensington has a new trackball called the Orbit that is sized for mobile users that want an alternative to a normal mouse.
The Orbit is wireless and uses a nano USB dongle that can be stored inside the peripheral if needed. It uses 2.4GHz wireless technology and has a touch scrolling feature for gliding through long web pages. The trackball is also ambidextrous so you can use it in either hand.
Kensington ships the Orbit with software that allows the user to customize the function of the device. It will work with Windows and Mac computers and will ship soon for $59.99. This is also a good choice for users that don’t have the room for a normal mouse near their computer.Filed Under: Technology News, USB Gadgets
