Founded in 1994 by 'movement scientists' and ergonomists, BakkerElkhuizen is committed to linking the human being and their computers in a more natural way. The latest development from the company is a complete work set for the kind of flexible workstations that laptop driven working models demand. Consisting of a laptop holder, a compact keyboard, document holder and a vertical mouse. Regular readers of DaniWeb will know that my vision is impaired due to a medical condition, which …

Product Review HandShoeMouse

[ATTACH=right]15223[/ATTACH]The box that the HandShoeMouse arrived in proudly claims that this is "the only mouse that fits like a glove" although I'd take issue with that. You don't wear it like a glove, but rather it wears you. The glove analogy does hold up when it comes to the pre-purchase ritual, however, as this is the first time I have ever needed my hand to be measured before I could purchase a mouse! The vendor website guides you through the process, with a separate order route for right and left handed users. It's not overly complicated, which is handy if …

[ATTACH=RIGHT]22124[/ATTACH]If you are a Windows 7 user then maybe you have longed for a mouse designed just for you and your Operating System, but somehow I doubt it. What you want is a mouse that just works the way you expect and doesn't leave your wrist feeling like you've been shaking hands with Hulk Hogan for a fortnight at the end of the day. So what was Microsoft thinking of when it decided to launch a Windows 7 only mouse into the market that's unlike any other in the way you use it? Actually, Microsoft was trying to push the …

Having just written [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/reviews/review345593.html"]a glowing review of the new Microsoft Arc Touch mouse[/URL] in which I was struck by the sheer beauty of the thing, I thought it only right to take a look at what is quite possibly the ugliest mouse in the world to get my reviewing karma balanced. In that Arc Touch review I happened to mention that it was pretty useless to hardcore gamers, which inevitably led to my getting emailed by gamers asking what I recommend they should be looking at when it comes to the cutting edge of gaming mice. This review is my …

Looks, I am often told, can be deceptive. This is certainly the case as far as the Microsoft Arc mouse and the new Arc Touch mouse are concerned. Sure, at first glance there is not much different about the two in terms of that innovative arcing design; but look closer, and more importantly pick the Arc Touch up and start using it, for the differences to become clear. In other words, the form may be broadly the same but the function has moved on.[attach]19161[/attach]There's the transformational function for a start, which no longer folds up into a mouse-sized clamshell but …

The Swiftpoint Mouse is primarily designed with one purpose in mind, and that is to replace the touchpad on your laptop or netbook. Indeed, unlike any mouse I've ever used (and that includes the smallest of portable units) the Swiftpoint can be comfortably operated within the confines of the palmrest alongside the existing touchpad. Actually, it's even more amazing than that as I am currently using this clever bit of geek design quite comfortably on the very small area of palmrest next to the touchpad on my netbook - and that's an area of just a couple of square inches. …
