Clip Mouse Concept: Now Why Didn’t I Think of This?
November 30th, 2012
If you’re like me, you loathe the idea of using a trackpad on your laptop. I grew up using mice, and I’m about 1000 times more efficient using a mouse than a trackpad. So whenever I hit the road, I carry a mouse everywhere I go. But one problem with the mouse is where to put it when you carry around your computer. That’s why I love the idea behind the Clip Mouse.
The concept for the Clip Mouse was designed by Frank Guo for a design competition being put on by Lite-On, and it’s really a cool idea. Basically, the mouse would be made of a curved material that could be easily clipped onto the edge of an ultrabook or other thin laptop, so you can carry both the computer and the mouse with one hand.
Guo envisions a C-shaped mouse that would be easy to grip and control, offering a touch-based scroll and button capability. The bottom of the mouse would be flat, so it could glide around on a desktop or other even surface, while the inside would be made of a ribbed rubber material, making it safe and easy to clip around your other gadgets.
Currently, the Clip Mouse is still in the concept stages, but I’m hoping that somebody decides to make these. I’d definitely buy one if they ever come out.
