These days, most of us are glued to our computers, staring at our screens for hours at a time. This can have terrible effect on our health. This new wireless mouse from Japan’s Sanwa industries aims to help with our sedentary lifestyles. This three-button wireless mouse has a sensor on the left side that measures your heart rate.
All you have to do is sit still, place your thumb on the sensor, and in a few seconds the mouse records your heart rate. You can even assign a preset heart rate and if you cross that threshold, it will sound a warning and flash. That isn’t all it does. It also measures the clicks and distance the mouse has traveled, though you can already do that with several 3rd-party apps and any mouse.
Right now the mouse will store its data with a PC application, but a smartphone app is coming soon. I’m not sure if it will really help you with your health, but it may make you more aware for about $71 (USD).
