The horribly named HandshoeMouse promises the ultimate in ergonomic comfort: an ergonomic computer mouse which is not gripped, but into which the palm and digits of the hand sink. Its creators certainly take it seriously: it is based on four years worth of research into muscular tension conducted by the medical universities of Rotterdam and Maastricht. But as comfortable as the HandshoeMouse looks, there’s no getting around the fact that it’s not a very good mouse. Oh, I can do without a horizontal scroll wheel, or a couple of thumbable buttons at the side, but to not even include a middle mouse button? That’s just unforgivable in a 120 euro mouse, no matter how wonderfully breast-like it conforms to the palm of the hand.
