Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Float Away
One design firm has taken an innovative approach to resolve carpal tunnel syndrome; something that is affecting office workers everywhere. This device – a floating mouse called BAT – alleviates the need to rest your wrist on the table when using it. Float away carpal tunnel!
Czech Design firm, Kibardin Design, has taken the age-old mouse design (internet time of course) to a higher level with a BAT wireless mouse, literally.
Magnets keep the BAT levitating wireless mouse floating above its 240 mm (9.4 inches) diameter, and 20 mm (0.7 inches) thick mains-powered base. The mouse is able to hover up to 10mm with a 1000g (that’s 1kg) weight on it. It is also above to hover up to 40mm when floating freely.
It is in the pre-production stage at the moment but something we should be keeping an eye out for.
