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
. The mouse is also expected to be available
from major retailers nationwide soon.
