The Cellulon evoMouse proposes to be the next generation of mousing technology by doing away with the mouse altogether and letting you use your fingers instead. It's a neat idea, but there's no way this thing is going to take over from the peripherals we're used to.
The evoMouse sits on any flat surface and lets your finger act like a mouse, as if you were using a big touchpad. You can tap to click, make a weird gesture to right click, and even use a variety of fancy multitouch gestures:
I don't know about you, but personally, you'd have to pry my 5 button mouse out of my cold, dead hand. After killing me first. I just don't see how my stupid fingers could possibly duplicate the precision and functionality that I rely on with a physical mouse. For people who are used to gaming, graphic design, and multitasking, the ability to select individual pixels and then click on them with one of a number of different buttons is crucial.
That said, maybe this could come in handy for casual use and mobile applications, especially if the technology gets integrated into laptops at some point. And it sort of looks like a puppy, which is never a bad thing, unless you hate puppies. You don't hate puppies, do you?
The evoMouse doesn't have a price yet and nobody seems to know when it's available, but it does at least actually exist. My guess is that it won't end up being that expensive, though, because if it is, nobody's going to buy one.
