Mousetrapper controller promises pain-free PC control

Mousetrapper Advance

Swedish design firm Mousetrapper today announced the Mousetrapper Advance, a unique mouse replacement that builds a trackpad into a palmrest. This gives a notebook-style control scheme to almost any desktop keyboard. The design is specially crafted to keep a computer user's hands on the home row of the keyboard while they type and reduce the cramping or other repetitive stress, its creator says. The position suits both left- and right-handed typists and is a straightforward USB add-on that works with both Macs and Windows PCs. It ships today in the UK for 170 ($333) and should spread to other regions soon. [via TechShout]

    Don't buy this

    Hi, I've been using the "classic model" mousetrapper for years. The classic model is brilliant..this one is not. The model in this article is a "modernized" version of the original mousetrapper. The buttons are too small and badly placed. My hands were hurting BADLY after 20 seconds, just like an ordinary mouse. So ill tell to those who designed this, remember the old saying, if it aint broke dont fix it.
