Forget Trackballs, Get Ergonomic with a Trackbar

Are you all about an ergonomic workspace? Me, I’m a slouching, crossleg sitting, traditional mouse and keyboard using geek. That doesn’t mean that I don’t ‘think’ about trying alternative input devices though. I happened to run across the Emotion Trackbar Ergonomic Mouse and it seems more unusual than most. It has two 1000 dpi optical sensors. One is a long bar at the top and the other is a smaller scroll wheel in the center. You can buy one for around $100. Would you use something like this?

    Looks like a smaller and less expensive version of the Roller Mouse Pro. If it works as well as the Roller Mouse I’d be tempted – I found the RM more efficient and easy to use (a couple of folks at work had them)

    Beats trying to buy used MS Trackballs on Ebay…

    Reviews on Amazon are bad… it appears that it would be better to stick with the more expensive Roller Mouse model.
