Float Away Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Float Away
One design firm has taken a 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.
Czech Design firm, Kibardin Design, has taken the age old mouse design (internet time of course) to higher level with a the BAT wireless mouse, literally.
Magnets keep the BAT levitating wireless mouse floating above its 240 mm (9.4 inch) diameter, and 20 mm (0.7 inch) 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 pre-production stage at the moment but something we should be keeping an eye out for.
