BAT Levitating Mouse: Impractical, Probably Impossible, But Awesome All the Same

 |  |  |  |  |  |  March 7, 2013

While Leap Motion and Google Glass are real products, the BAT Levitating Mouse is unfortunately just a concept. That doesn’t mean it can’t be real in the future, but unlike the previous concepts mentioned which have a range of uses, what would people get from having a levitating mouse aside from the coolness factor?

Could it perhaps offer better usability that will reduced the likelihood of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome? I’m skeptical, but that’s basically the premise that¬†KIBARDINDESIGN Studio¬†worked with when they came up with this concept.

As you can see, the BAT levitating mouse is made up of two parts: the base (which is basically its fancy mouse pad), and the actual mouse which is fitted with a magnetic ring.


As is often the case with prototypes and concept designs, there’s no word on an actual production run of the BAT mouse. However, its designer does have a history of actually bringing his design concepts to market, like the cool White & White Clock, so there may be hope for floating mice in our futures.
