Magic Mouse, Fixed - MMFixed.com
Being a fan of Apple products I picked up a Magic Mouse a few days after it launched. After using it for a week I was hooked on its multi-touch surface, but it was awkward to hold and after an hour or two of using it I would develop a pain in my wrist. Looking into the problem further, I found out that a large majority of Magic Mouse owners were having similar problems and all of the online product reviews I read revealed the same flaw. The Magic Mouse does not contour to the users hand. So, being a product designer and manufacturer, I decided to see what I could do to fix it.
I started by building prototypes out of clay and testing them until I came up with one that fit my hand nicely and eliminated the wrist pains I was developing (I had my wife use it as well to confirm it would work in large and small hands). From there, I had it converted to a three-dimensional model and put into production. I decided on a comfortable silicone that feels slightly softer than a pencil eraser and integrated a suction cup into the bottom for quick and easy attachment and removal from the Magic Mouse. The "FIX" was ready!
The Magic Mouse fix is a quick and comfortable solution to the poor ergonomics of the Magic Mouse for $12 with FREE shipping in the US and $4 for international. If you plan on using your magic mouse for more than thirty minutes a day, this product will reduce stress on your wrist and improve the ergonomics of what is otherwise an amazing mouse.
