We have reported on special computer mice in the past, like the one from Swiftpoint, but the Cellulon evoMouse claims to be something very different.
Some of you might have been confused by my headline, but just picture using your hand to do the gestures that you would using a mouse, but don’t use the mouse.
Watch the video if you are still confused. Let’s just say that your pointer becomes the pointer, and you have some special moves that you can do for going forward and backward.
As you can see in the video, not much has changed in mouse technology for over twenty years. In all honesty, I think that most users are used to them like it was a third arm. This evoMouse seems like it would be the natural evolution of a computer mouse. It doesn’t look like it would take much getting used to, and it does things that regular mice cannot.
You will note that it is powered by a USB cable, so you wouldn’t have to worry about the power running out like with wireless mice.
All in all, I would say that this is a welcome change for technology. I notice that the evoMouse is in front of the user’s hand, but could it be altered so it is on the side? That way, a laptop could come with an evoMouse and users would not have to purchase a separate peripheral.
I don’t have a price or any availability date on this, so let’s just say it is under development.
