Finger mouse is just plain weird

It's wireless but still doesn't look too comfortable.


We first saw a finger-mounted mouse more than a year ago, but our opinion of the idea hasn't changed much since then.

Granted, there's a new version that's wireless, which addresses one of our biggest complaints about its predecessor. But the new 3D Optical Computer Wireless Finger Mouse still looks too cumbersome to use comfortably for those of us who type about as much as we breathe on any given day.

And even though it's supposedly more ergonomic than a traditional mouse, according to PClaunches, we still think a bit of contortionism is needed to work the scroll wheel and other controls. Besides, just the thought of it freaks us out because it looks like some kind of robo-leech stuck to the hand.
