It’s true. While computer mice are all cute and nimble, Ektouch claims it’s not ergonomic enough and has an adverse effect on a user’s wrist. Their solution? A non-keyboard finger intensive hunk of hardware called the Ergoslider Plus+. Yes, you actually slide it.
To be honest, figuring out its use without the benefit of instructions or even a video calls for much head scratching. According to the promotional press however, the Ergoslider Plus+ is supposed to ease the usual strain on hand muscles—see that white pad at the bottom? Rest the wrists there, says Ektouch.
Okay, now that the wrists are all comfy, manipulate the gray cylinder for basic cursor movements. Roll up roll down for Y-axis action, push left and right for the same on the X-axis. Now the cluster of buttons at the middle–those are for clickity-click-clicking and the fat black one is a scroll wheel.
So how many fingers keep busy working the Ergoslider? All ten? Now how about the mouse, how many fingers for that?
Okay, okay, so the Ergoslider doesn’t exactly inspire snazzy confidence. But it does deserve credit for thinking out of the box. We’ll unleash extra details soon about retail and pricing.
Parting message: We’re 100% sure you can’t use this on a first person shooter.
