When it comes to the mouse, there’s basically one design that we all have to get used to. Conform to, if you will. Sure, there’s been plenty of variations out there, with some that include more buttons, and still others that have no buttons at all (at least, not visible ones). But, at least to the best of our knowledge, we can’t remember the last time we saw a mouse that actually looked like a hand. More specifically, a mouse that fit into your hand, like a one-side glove, and conformed to you, and not the other way around.
That’s exactly what the G50 Vanguard mouse concept is. It’s designed to show that a mouse can, indeed, fit into the palm of your hand, and still be functional. On top of that, it’s designed to help your wrist and fingers, so that you don’t get carpal tunnel from using it too much. The only real unfortunate part of this, is that it really is just a concept, and there’s no word on when, or if, it will ever see the light of day.
But, then again, Apple did just release the Magic Trackpad, and that’s supposed to revolutionize everything. Again. But, does it really? If you’re looking for an answer to that question, then maybe you should go head on over to the trackpad’s review, which is right here. It’ll be a good read — and it will give you some insight as to whether or not the mouse is dead, or if the G50 Vanguard has any chance in the real world.
