A normal computer mouse is an innovation many of us take for granted, especially those of us who use one all day, every day. This also means we may ignore the limitations of this device which has been with us for more than 40 years. That is until the dreaded carpal tunnel strikes or we come up against a task that requires an extra degree of precision difficult to attain using a conventional mouse. Mimicking a pen in shape and size, gStick is looking to join the ranks of alternative mouse designs that aim to address these problems. Read More
