evoMouse has been described as the evolution of the computer mouse which has hardly changed from its original format in the 1990’s. The device let’s users use their finger as the pointer rather than a touch screen or a physical mouse.
The evoMouse can work on almost any flat surface with very little space and tracks to the users movements to perform common mouse operations such as controlling the cursor, click and select, double-click, right-click and drag with basic hand gestures, using only your fingers.
Furthermore, it feaures a multi-touch functionality that includes scroll, rotate, zoom, forward and back in addition to handwriting recognition with the finger or a pen.
Connecting a computer or desktop to evoMouse is also quite simple and straightforward as it can be done via Bluetooth or a standard USB port. Finally, there is possibly some health benefits. According to the manufacturers “Because it allows natural movements and doesn’t require pushing around a physical object, the evoMouse may help reduce repetitive stress injuries like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.”
VERDICT: Seems like a good alternative to touch-screen functionality for those who do not like the mouse and are not so keen on having their computer screens dirty.
What are your impressions of evoMouse technology?

The evoMouse seems really cool but I would want to test it out myself before coming to any conclusions

Good point JJ. I’m sure like most things, there would be aspects of it that you like those that you don’t.

I’m with JJ. I’d need to use it to be sure. Although the video helps. Just like any device, once you get used to it it may become a winner. For instance, I use a mouse with the ball on top.

Thanks for the comments guys. @Stephan – Which mouse are you referring to (with the ball on top)?
