OM Optical Mouse

People have complained about how thin the Magic Mouse is, some have even complained about their hands cramping up. We haven't had any problems with cramping, and we actually enjoy how flat the mouse is. Now there's a mouse that looks like the Magic Mouse met a mallet.

The OM Optical Mouse is flatter and much wider than the Magic Mouse. The mouse is about as wide as the average hand, and apparently it's to help minimize cramping. This way your hand can be spread out on the mouse, not flexed above it.

The highest point of the OM is 10mm and apparently feels like you're using nothing at all! We'd love to use this mouse, but sadly, it's still in concept form. We could imagine this being pretty comfortable because you essentially just have your hand sitting on top of it, spread out, relaxing!

If you aren't a fan of the Magic Mouse, would you consider using the OM Optical Mouse if it were to become available?
