Logitech’s new mouse is inspired by the handshake

The thing with mice is (and I speak from experience)… people who do use mice, absolutely can’t work without them. The trackpad is a poor alternative to the chunky, grippy design of a mouse, and after I spend a third of my day touching digital elements on a touchscreen, and typing on a godforsaken touchscreen keyboard, the mouse, in all its tactile glory, feels like functionality-heaven.

Inspired by the formation the hand makes during a natural handshake, Logitech’s MX Vertical wants to be the chunky mouse your hand falls in love with. Tilting at an angle of 57° off the horizontal plane that is your table, the MX Vertical feels halfway between a mouse and a joystick. It can be held onto for hours, being maneuvered without strain, and is even easy on your wrist too, shifting the movement from side-side to up-down. Built with the regular left and right click buttons and the scroll wheel, the MX Vertical ups the ante with two more buttons for your thumb, and another button on the top. It even comes with a rubber gripping area with this subtle texture that looks absolutely welcoming! The only perceivable disadvantage? The lack of an ambidextrous design… but maybe I’m being a little pedantic.
