A 16-year-old student from Wales is looking for funding to develop a wearable mouse device. The "Mouse Glove" was developed by Tobias Patterson-Jones, who is currently studying at Coleg Powys, Brecon.

The glove-like prototype fits on the hand and allows the user to control a computer in much the same way a mouse would.

The invention was featured on a TV programme on The Discovery Channel after Tobias was named as one of four people chosen to pitch their ideas to a panel of experts experienced at turning ideas into commercial products.

The mouse glove is designed to help people who suffer with Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI). It also thought it could be employed by the computer games industry.

Earlier this week US-based Essential Reality named EB Games (formerly Electronic Boutique) as one of a handful of companies to flog its new peripheral product, the P5.

The P5 is a hand-worn controller that lets users interact with their PC without having to touch their keyboard or mouse. ®
