Shame on you if you caught that double entendre. I wrote it and I don't even get it. Anyway, this is an interesting concept for a computer mouse. It's got a built-in sensor that can tell how long your hand has been idly resting on it without scrolling, clicking, or any of that good stuff.

If you keep your hand on the mouse for more than 10 seconds, it will begin to vibrate to let you know that you need to give your hand a rest. It may not sound like something you need, but according to the ThinkGeek product page, "all those hours spent clutching your mouse can tense up your hand muscles and lead to tendinitis, tenosynovitis and all kinds of scary sounding repetitive stress disorders." Something that can prevent a stress disorder? Sounds good to me.It's available online for $69. Via Gizmodo
