Elecom Ambidextrous Mouse
Japanese accessory maker Elecom today shipped its simple M-EKUR mouse. The USB controller is built expressly for households where both left- and right-handed people regularly share control of a single computer, including a switch on the back of the mouse to instantly reverse the button layout so that mousing is practical from either side of the desk. Its shape is also symmetric for equal comfort and is small enough to be used by children, Elecom says. An 800 DPI optical sensor provides a higher level of accuracy as well. The M-EKUR will be available in the next few days in neon green and orange colors for $22 each.
