With the growing popularity of touch devices, there's a growing sentiment that the days of the mouse are numbered. But ask anyone who creates on the computer using a mouse, pen and tablet, or other input device, and you realize these all remain not only popular, but also essential for specialized tasks. But what if you could alleviate some of the ergonomic issues that arise with continual use of a mouse while keeping their utility? That's the idea behind Ryo Yoshimi's Adapta, a 2011 James Dyson Award Entry, changing the angle in which we interact with our mouse from an above position to a handshake grip. What do you think?
