Penclic Combines a Pen With a Mouse

Penclic is a Swedish company that has an innovative new take on the plain old computer mouse.  The mouse actually looks a bit like a pen resting in a fountain, as it protrudes from the top of the small mouse.  This allows the user to control the movement in a more ergonomic manor, more like old fashioned writing than actually elevating the wrist to move a traditional mouse.

At the moment the Penclic mouse is only available in a right-handed model, but lefties won’t need to wait long for their version.  The pen shaft actually rotates so that each user can find the most comfortable position for  his or her self.  The left, right, and center click buttons are all located on the “pen”, which also has two additional buttons for web surfing – back and forwards.  The mouse is wireless and has a small rechargeable battery.

You can see the mouse demonstrated in the video below. You can buy it from many retailers in the U.S., including Amazon for an MSRP of $89.  You can also visit Penclic on the web, but the site is in Swedish.

Penclic – the Pen Mouse

Penclic MouseSwedish company Penclic think that the pen is mightier than the sword mouse so Andy gets to grips with the Penclic Mouse to see if it’s true.

A picture paints a thousand words and once you’ve seen the picture to the left, you’ll pretty much have grasped (sorry) the concept. You hold the Penclic Mouse as you would hold a pen and the base moves with your hand.

The Penclic Mouse is offered in two models, a wireless R2 and a corded D2, with all the features of a standard mouse, including left & right buttons and a scroll wheel. Available now from good retail stores at around $80 for the wireless version.
