Is the VerticalMouse 2 Worth a Thumbs Up?
Extreme Tech reviews a new vertical mouse.
Unfortunately, Evoluent’s VerticalMouse 2, which we review today, doesn’t win any crazy and kooky awards. In fact, it’s best described as a regular-looking mouse that’s been turned 90 degrees clockwise (counterclockwise for the lefties). The idea is to allow your arm to control the mouse in a more natural position, with the thumb up, in a hand-shaking position. Doctors who specialize in ergonomics consider this position preferable. And because it resembles a regular mouse, there’s no real learning curve when you start using it.
Being a left handed person, this would not be the mouse me as I like to be able to use my mouse with either hand, back and forth depending on what I am doing, and this mouse would not allow me to do that, but I am glad to see more ergonomic mice coming out, and wonder how much having a vertical mouse would help.
