Jelfin Redesigns The Mouse

Jelfin unveiled a new type of computer mouse that the company is touting as the first of its kind. This ball-shaped mouse has a gel cover that covers its entire surface area. To use this mouse, users cup their fingers around the ball instead of extending them outward.

To back up the need for a newly designed mouse, Jelfin points to a survey that claims many Americans would like a more comfortable mouse than the one they currently use. In addition, these users would like the new mouse to feel more natural in their hand. According to the survey, 67% of mouse users with an opinion think a more comfortable mouse could increase their productivity and/or creativity.

To help meet these desires, the Jelfin mouse is designed to fit in the curvature of your hand and offer a more natural and comfortable feel. In addition, fans of the Jelfin say the jelly cushion keeps their hands relaxed and comfortable for longer periods of time and puts less tension on their wrist and forearm than today's traditional mice.
The Jelfin mouse is available in five accent colors: cobalt blue, crimson red, cadmium yellow, electric green, and hot pink. The cover is removable and replaceable. The mouse sells for about $35 and comes with a travel can. The Jelfin mouse is available from www.jelfin.com or www.Amazon.com. The mouse is also expected to be available from major retailers nationwide soon.

I personally am very happy with my mouse except that the scrolling wheel doesn't have that mechanical cicking feel. Makes changing weapons in FPS difficult.

That thing can't possibly be comfortable...

@acarzt - Which mouse do yo have? If it's a Logitech, you can usually switch between the smooth and clicky mouse wheel settings.

>> That thing can't possibly be comfortable...

My thought exactly.

Looks like your wrist would be at a horrible angle.

I've got to laugh at the company's justification. Of *course* people would like "better," "more natural" mice. If you're using the mouse+keyboard that came with your computer, that's a real given.

Yeah, uh, go to the store and buy a mouse that fits your hand. I got a Logitech MX510 probably five years ago now. It was the only mouse to actually fit in my hand properly. And the most amazing part is, even though I got it so long ago, IT STILL FITS IN MY HAND!

I am with you Gonzo I use Logitech MX 518's on my laptop and on my desktop. I have in total owned 3 now I think. I have big hands and it works perfectly for me I have looked at others, but I always try my mouse out in person. This one fits me flawlessly, I also like all the features and know by touch where every button is on it. I also personally don't like wireless mice even the top end ones always seem a split second off to me in synchronization. Either way this thing looks very uncomfortable to me with the two big click actuators being all the way on the opposite side of a ball to me. That means I would have to hold my arm like 2.5-3.5 inches off the desktop at all times. No thanks!!!!!!

Terrible design. There's a reason no one has really changed the design of the mouse in all these years.
