Liu Yi’s Mouse Is Toe Operated

Toe-Mouse

If you needed any more proof that we live in a world where physical disabilities can be overcome with the help of technology, Liu Yi’s toe mouse concept should do the trick.

The Chinese designer’s mouse takes full advantage of our natural ability to grip stuff between our toes, allowing disabled people to easily operate it. Its ergonomic shape makes it a perfect fit, between the big toe and the second one. The sensor beneath the two toes act like the left and right mouse buttons.

Thanks to its flip-flop design, the toe mouse will feel familiar even to those who haven’t used it before, allowing practically everyone to handle a computer. Check out more photos of the Toe Mouse, after the jump. (more…)

The Robotmouse – Strange Computer Peripheral

Robotmouse

This is one of the strangest computer peripherals I’ve ever seen. The Robotsmouse, as it is called, was created by Aaron Ristau and has a round body design. Its buttons for left and right “click” look like those of an old typewriter while the scroll wheel looks like something archaic. At the top of the mouse, a LED will illuminate your palm with glowing red light and also you’ll need to stick your finger through that loop when you are using it, as you can see in the video below.
