It's a saddle for your hand

Security for virtualized datacentres

The wireless edition of the HandshoeMouse is less demanding in this respect. This model can be recharged while you work by connecting a USB cable, which is handy, but it costs £22 more. And this is an expensive mouse, make no mistake. Blame the exchange rate if you like, but at £94 you need an absolutely compelling reason to buy one.

Going Dutch: the only mouse in the world with its own wrist rest

To be fair, Hippus is not selling these in large numbers just yet, and the company is manufacturing the wired versions in three different sizes and three different colours: all this costs money. On that note, additional 'special' sizes and a left-handed model are apparently available for an unlikely £266.00 (€297.50), which will not go down well with the 'sinister' crowd out there.

Verdict

The HandshoeMouse is a well-designed and well-built product, comfortable to use and smooth in action. We cannot prove whether or not it relieves strain to your forearm in the long term, but the background science and our brief experience suggest that it is so. It will certainly relieve your wallet of nearly £100... which is more than the cost of a terabyte hard disk. Which do you need more? ®
